STAR Korrnell Education Group is committed to provide a high quality bilingual education and to prepare students to become future leaders. Our founder Dr. Johnson Huang believes that just as the purpose of a hospital is to save lives and to alleviate pain, the mission of a good school is to influence the future generations and to create aspirations.
