Welcome to Starkey Ranch K-8, home of the RedHawks! Our school will be home to students who live in the Starkey Ranch Community and students who choose to attend Starkey Ranch K-8 through the Open Enrollment School Choice opportunity. We are Pasco County’s first K-8 magnet school and are proud of the innovative programs we will be able to offer our students.

While spreading their wings and learning to SOAR in early elementary, your child will have the opportunity to explore their interests in our three magnet themes of computer science, fine arts, and world language.  As students progress to upper elementary and middle school grades, they will get to go deep into their interest area(s).  Our goal at Starkey Ranch K-8 is to promote student achievement while offering students choice in curriculum.

I am excited to meet each of our students and families in August as we open the doors of our beautiful campus.
