Starbuck Middle

Starbuck Principal's Corner


Dear Families,

As we enter this school year, I want to express to you that my deepest desire is to ensure that each of you has a very successful school year.  I am honored and feel privileged to be the principal at Starbuck-An IB World School for the past 4 years. For all students returning to Starbuck, welcome back! For those new to Starbuck, I welcome you into a close-knit and prideful family that will take you to the next level in your education.

The staff at Starbuck- An IB World School are very excited to support you in accomplishing all your academic goals.  Always remember that you are in charge of your learning.  We have amazing teachers at Starbuck who will provide you with everything you need to grow socially and academically.  We need your commitment to your education to ensure that you produce nothing short of excellence.  The routines and study habits you put in place this school year will dictate your success.  I charge each of you to put systems in place at home and in school to guide you as you strive for excellence. 

To all of our proud parents and caregivers, I invite you to model and partner with us throughout the school year as we instill excellence into our students. Research shows that students will have the greatest possibility for success if support structures are in place at home.

While no one can predict what the future holds, rest assured that our school team is prepared to come together to address any challenge, and we remain committed to making our school a fantastic place for students to learn and grow.


Sincerely Yours,


Ellis Turrentine
