NORTH STAR ACADEMY is one of New Jersey's very first charter public schools, and after sixteen years has also become one of its most celebrated.

In a 2009 visit, US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan remarked, "[North Star] has raised the bar…We need to take these islands of excellence to build more schools like this nationwide." 

North Star Academy now serves nearly 3,500 students in grades K-12 in ten schools across Newark: five elementary schools (grades K-4), four middle schools (grades 5-8), and a high school (grades 9-12).
