Meet The Ellis Family!

“Our daughter Evah went to a Montessori school for her first couple years. We started looking for a school that was more focused on the individual child and flexible with learning styles. I knew a family who had all 6 of their children go through North Star Academy and were very happy with the experience. After asking them lots of questions and going in to North Star for a visit, we knew it was the best option for our children.

My daughter Evah has been attending North Star 3rd grade through distance learning this year and attended 2nd grade distance learning in the spring. I have talked to many parents with children in different schools throughout the northland that are frustrated by online difficulties and worried about the level of education their children are receiving online. I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with the education you are providing online during this difficult time. The preparation, planning and adaptation of the amazing teachers is far above our expectations.

I wanted to let those at the Duluth Edison Charter Schools know how impressed I am with the education you are providing online during this difficult time. The preparation, planning and adaptation of the amazing teachers is far above our expectations. My husband and I are very grateful that we are able to keep Evah safe at home and know that she is receiving a high quality of education. We appreciate all your hard work, efforts and strategic planning and will continue to spread the word about how great of a job you are all doing in the midst of uncertainty and change.”

Thank you to the Ellis family for sharing their story!
