All personnel is very caring and concerned with quality education, I'm glad my son goes there. He came from schooling in Mexico and is doing great thanks to the motivation from his teacher and the rest of the staff.

This school has many outstanding teachers who are dedicated to the students and go over and above to help a student. Having said that, there are few teachers that have a bad reputation; it seems these teachers have forgotten what it is to be kid and they don't know how to handle stressful situations. **This school has the potential of being great for our community**

I went to this school and so did my cousins and uncles, and we all love it. I liked the principal that the school had before Cortez, the school looked happier, and Mr. Gonzalez would listen to a student before any other thing even if he was in a hurry, while Cortez would just brush off the student and punish them without even listening

This is my son's 3rd year at Silverwing Elementary and I have seen great improvement! The teachers are awsome and all the effort the principal, Mr. Cortez and his staff have made to make this school a better one is making a huge diffrence for Silverwing. I am very happy to see more parent involvment at meetings. I believe Silverwing will continue to make great strides!!

I have Two sons in this school they started 3 years ago and since I been there I can tell you this is a great school the importance that they give to your children is amazing, also at this school they teach parents how to interact with their childrens to make them succesful students and to be a part in their school. and they strongly support parents involvment and that is the key for your son's success.

My daughter started at Silver Wing scoring EXTREMELY high in all academic areas, and now, after being there 5 years (too long), she is barely at grade level. She is an intelligent girl but this school's academics is very lacking, and it (the school) focuses more on hispanic students that are non-english speaking (maybe to increase enrollment, i dont know). At one point my daughter (who does not even speak spanish) was placed in an all spanish speaking class due to lack of room. This is not the way to excel in academics. She had to stay in this class for almost a month while we went to battle with administrators to get her placed in an english speaking class. I regret keeping my daughter in this school as long as i did. I do not recommend it to anyone.

Transferring my sons from an upscale neighborhood school to Silver Wing is the biggest mistake. Reasons: Bullying, foul languages, lack of subjects being taught, insufficient funding for field trips, not enough teachers, etc...

I regret sending my son to this school. Bullying is a problem, teachers do not want to stay there.This school has many more issues.

The teachers at this school are great. Great communication with the parents. Mr. Cortez is a great Principal, he takes the time to talk to the parents and have meetings.

This school is in desperate need of some help. Test scores are very low. Bullying is another problem that is not being handled, actually it is being tolerated. It starts from the top down, is it any wonder why the school is going downhill? These kids are our future and it is not fair that they are not getting the quality education that they deserve.

This school lacks in all areas academically, no extracurricular activities, teacher support. I regret sending my daughter to this school she has only fallen behind and left unprepared for the 2nd grade.
