We have absolutely loved our time at Silverwood! The teachers are fantastic!!! They seem to be on the cutting edge of educational practices and truly care about the kids. The principal and support staff have been available and extremely helpful. In addition, the parent support is great. Love this school!
Love, love, love the kindergarten techers!! They are amazing!! They are fun, super-patient and really get the kids excited and motivated to learn and do their best!
My 5 year old son was transferred to this school after the staff at Sun Terrace was so careless with him and lost him on his first day of school Tues. Augs. 30 2011, he was found almost a mile from the school wandering a neighborhood, it was a nightmare... Since being transerred here the very next day, I can only say that I LOVE THIS SCHOOL, he is in Kindergarten and his Teacher is amazing, he is shining like a star at Silverwood, Thank you so Much to the principle, staff and his new K Teacher for making us feel so welcomed and making sure my child is safe and sound in his classroom when I get there to pick him up each day.... I only wish all schools would follow in Silverwood's footsteps!!!!!
My grandson goes to preschool and the big kids adore him. Wish my granddaughter could go their for her first grade.
Great school, dedicated teachers and principal. My child is absolutely blooming here and I am very pleased that this is my neighborhood school. Very diverse student body, which I love. They don't just teach the children academics heer-they teach them to be good citizens, and that is just as important to me. Love them!!
I am a former student of Silverwood Elementary and I thought it was great!!! I am now 22 years old but I have never forgot what that school did for me. The teachers were/ are wonderful! I was a Special Edd student and they helped me through a very hard time in my life. The teachers supported me when my parents did not and showed me kindness and love that I have never seen before! The school will always have a special place in my heart!!! I owe who I have become to Mrs. Erby and Mrs. Aronald. They showed me that I could be better and do better than my parents and that success was an option!!! I learned the biggest lessons of my life at Silverwood and recommend it to parents who want their children to learn caring, love for life, and a passion for learning!!!
This school is a true gem. Nestled in a tidy, working-class neighborhood, the parents and staff work together to provide a top-quality education for the students.
Silverwood Elementary has been around sense I was a kid and that was over 30 years ago...I had a fun learning. My older daughter attended and went into middle school pulling straight As....my younger daughter is attending still and has one more year to go and she loves the staff and the school is so home to her. Please help save this wonderful school and staff.
I give the teachers 5 stars, but the office staff gets 2 stars. They have no regard for privacy issues. If you're involved with the PTA, be warned that the office staff will give out your home and cell phone number to ANYONE who asks, if the question/issue concerns the PTA. This has led to far fewer parents being involved with the PTA in the past few years, which hurts the kids in the long run. The teachers at the school are totally GREAT and AWESOME! They truly love teaching and don't have any complaints about them.
Silverwood is an absolute great school. Great parent involvement, fantastic and dedicated teachers.
I am a parent and had to recently pull my daughter from Silverwood and move her to another school. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone!
In the first months of Sandra Roger-Hares sitting in the princapals chair the school has started showing signs that it glory days are over. Hares seems less concern with educating and more concern with enforcing district policies aim at curving costs and reducing fun activties for the childern. Renee Yeasted is greatly missed this year. 4th grade class is over populated and parents don't seem to ban together, against MDUSD to correct this problem. Wakeup parents this is your kids future, fight for your kids.
I have lived in the neighborgood all my life and my brother started to attend Silverwood after my mom realized that she was just 'buying' grades for him at our private catholic school. He did really well there and excelled academically and had a better diverse group of friends. My son is now a kindergartner ready for 1st grade in the fall. I enjoyed all the field trips and class projects that have made my son interested in schoolwork. I highly recommend this school for any child because of the adversity in family incomes and nationalities. It gives the students a 'real' perspective on what is out there in the world not what we as (some) parents would like to keep our children sheltered from.
Good teachers; minimal parent involvement; high esl student population;
A great school within a small neighborhood. The classroom sizes are about average with other schools in the neighborhood area but I like the teachers at Silverwood. The facilities are clean and sufficient and is very close to my home on Matheson Road. The parent involvement is more than I experienced at our previous school in Pleasant Hill, which I will not name.
This is a great school for the kids. It has a very diverse population in both income and nationalities. The teachers and staff do a great job of promoting comraderie among the students and the size of the school helps everyone get to know each other between the grades.
The principal is a guiding light for the school and is driving the increased quality in education and quality of life for the children. The teachers at all grade levels really work well with the students and motivate them to try harder. Its the first school that I knew of that had homework in Kindergarten! Talk about getting the parents involved early in their childrens education.
