Every year, the Professional Association of Georgia Educators Foundation honors top students at both public and private high schools from across the state. Students who receive the highest scores at their school on the SAT, a college entrance exam, and have grade-point averages in the top 10 percent of their class are recognized as STAR students, which stands for Student Teacher Achievement Recognition program. Each STAR student then chooses a teacher as his or her STAR teacher. After STAR students and teachers are chosen from the high schools, school system winners are named. Winners chosen from districts compete for the title of state STAR student. Here are the STAR students and teachers from schools in Reporter Newspapers communities: Brookhaven, Buckhead, Dunwoody and Sandy Springs. Their names and photos were provided by their high schools.
