Silva teachers and administration are outstanding in building positive relationships with students and parents. The campus is beautiful and is kept safe for students.
Unfortunately this school only allows positive reviews. My review before this one was deleted. So if you are in search for real answers you aren't going to find them here. Most of the PTA or Teachers post all the positive reviews. If you give a review that makes this school look bad, your post will be deleted. Sad really....
Great leadership- we wish the school systems would have a longer day- so they can take advantage of the great teachers! Overall great school.
Incredible school. Awesome Teachers and Administration. They really care about the kids here. There is Silva U which allows your child the opportunity to stay after school and learn other subjects that are not offered in school. Then they have real PE teachers...not just the regular classroom Teachers doing PE but acutal PE teachers. We have a full music program that has band and choir. The PTA is fabulous here and there are so many programs that they put on, we have the Harvest Festival, AAA awards, Walk to school day, family week, a preschool story time, honor roll breakfasts. Just an incredible school. Plus breakfast is free here to all children! And they also have an afterschool daycare program that has been set up in conjunction with the local YMCA. Could not ask for a more better school. Manlio is tops!!!
Amazing Teachers, Site and Staff! We came into the school later in the year and felt right at home on the first day!
My daughter is in the 5th grade gate program and is doing great. The teacher really care about the kids. They have a great PTA. It feels like a huge family.
My child has been going to this school since kindergarten. It has been a great experience and we were truly amazed with the principal Mr. Faith. He was by far an outstanding Principal. Unfortunately, Mr. Faith no longer works there and sadly it shows. There is a great deal with lack of enthusiasm. It is unfortunate that he is gone and the greatness has left with him. SOME Teachers are caring, understanding, and love what they do. However, most Teachers well.... lets just say they need to care more and remember why they wanted to teach in the first place. Be prepared parents for your child to be judged and treated differently. As well as, not getting the proper education due to the growing number of students in the classroom. If your child is struggling in a certain area be prepared to take on teaching your child what the Teacher should be doing. I am very disappointed and concerned with the lack of enthusiasm in teaching and helping a child learn. There are more things that I could go on about but I think I painted most of the picture for you. This school year has not been the best, and Manlio Silva can do much better than this. Currently contemplating a transfer.
Great school and parent involvement and volunteers make it extra great. They implemented some after school classes that my child has enjoyed which was a great addition this year.
Principal, teachers, staff, and wonderful families that care about their child's education and future!
Manlio Silva is one of the best schools because it is full of wonderful teachers, administrators, support staff and most of all the incredible community that has developed around this new school. The entire team (Staff, parents and students) all work hard and take pride in Manlio Silva. I am proud to be a participant in this team and thrilled my children are a part of this wonderful enviornment. Go Sharks!
Where to begin when talking about Manlio Silva. I am both a teacher and parent at this school. I have had the opportunity of working at two other schools and Manlio Silva is just leaps and bounds above others. The staff at the school are amazing! What a team it is (administrators, teachers, support staff, etc.) and the support that is shown for one another on a daily basis is beyond words. The teachers there truly show how much they care for the children. They are willing to go above and beyond to ensure every child's success. The teacher's are happy where they work and that says a lot to me. The parent support at the school is wonderful. The PTA has gone above and beyond to create so many amazing programs. Everywhere you look at the school there are parent volunteers stepping in to be involved in their child's education, volunteering their time, and just lending a hand wherever it is needed. I am so thankful I am a teacher at this wonderful school and could not be more pleased with the education my children are receiving at Manlio Silva. Go Sharks!!!!
Great parent involvement, you definitely feel a sense of pride in the school and children! The principal and teachers are very committed towards achieving optimal results!
We have just started our 2nd year at Silva. We were transfers in from out of state and I was worried about my child being on the same level. The teachers are great and the transfer was absolutely painless. Mr. Faith is the most involved principal that I have ever seen. The teaching staff seems to all love their jobs and it shows. I am really glad we picked this school when we moved here.
This is my son's first experience with school as a First Grader. He absolutely LOVES going to school and is doing so well. The principal, staff and teachers have all been helpful and very accessible. I'm very pleased with this school so far.
My kids attend this school for 3 years now and the school environment is terrific for learning. The teachers is so committed in helping them to succeed. The principle is very involved with the kids, he is a great leader who makes this school a great school to be in.
My child just recently graduated from Manlio Silva after becoming a student the year it opened 3 full years ago. She has continued to be an Honor Roll Gate student and without the consistency of the teachers and prinical, not to mention all the staff, I can't say that she would have been able to maintain her well above average grades during a recent illness that left her out the school loop for many days and even weeks. Manlo Silva is the best of the best..keep it up...
My son is a Kindergartner at Manlio Silva and I couldn't be a happier parent! This school greatly exceeds other schools in the area. The principal is great, the teachers are wonderful, and there are many involved parents. I couldn't be more thrilled that my son is in such a great environment!
My daughter loves this school. She attended Julia Morgan for Kindergarten and now she is in 1st grade at Manlio. Love the energy and involvement of the principal and teachers. The office staff is friendly. There are a lot of parent volunteers which makes a big difference. The school is new (two years old) and clean :)
This is a capacious school and theres plenty of coordinated learners here. My daughter exults going to this school. She discusses that this school has many objectives to do and her friends and herself enjoy them all!
This is the first full school year Manlio has been open and so far I am very impressed. I only see a bright future for this school. My daughter enjoys her class and teacher, and loves going to school everyday.
