I am a parent and my child has attended SVHS for the past 2 yrs she will graduate this coming year. I heard very negative things about this school before arriving at Fort Irwin but I must admit after allowing my child to give the school a chance I have been pleased. The staff are great the principle responds to calls and cares about each child. This is a small school so I have been more than pleased. They offer plenty of honor classes which my daughter takes. Discipline and structure start at home! I have another child coming from The middle school on post at fort Irwin also great school good parent involvement these schools are what the patents and children make them!

I am a former student of Silver Valley High School I graduated this year with honors and was accepted into UCR. As a freshmen among my class more than 50% accepted into college both in and out and state. Our Valedictorian was accepted to Berkeley. And while I had my ups and and downs like all high school students I have always considered myself lucky to not have gone to the closer Barstow High School. In the end I think students in high school need to take responsibility for their own education.

Re:To the parent who posted January 9, 2010: The teachers do not go out of the way to help students. The teachers are rude, and very few will help you out if you miss a day. My son was an A student when he came here, then he came here. Several teachers say it's not their responsability to help the student make up work they missed, when we very well know that's exactly their responsability. The school here is also academically behind all other schools. My son has had 3 friends who were seniors who all moved, and when they moved, they had to go back a greade because they didnt have all the credits they needed for those other schools. The only 2 poeple that we have anything good to say about at that school is the counceler, Mrs. Everly and the history teacher Mr. Tannis. Otherwise the staff is rude and the principle does nothing at that school, not even when threats are made, and the lady at the front desk, Mrs. Rachel is very rude to students and parents. If you come to live on Fort Irwin, your best choice would to have your kid do the homeschooling offered oin post where they can get a decent education.

This is by far the worst school my child has ever attended. We are a military family and are used to schools that are not that great. This school is very anti-military. The teachers tell the kids they don't like the military and are just there to get a paycheck. There is no leadership from the principle either. He is just there, he does not return phone calls or emails. My daughter only went here for 1 year. We then put her into the Mojave River Academy on post. This is a free charter school. It was wonderful and my daughter graduated 1 year early. She also took college courses while attending this school. She is now in college in tx.

Dear Readers, Silver Valley High School has many flaws and many achievements. Initially, an education is only given to those who strive for it. Students who sit in classrooms lackadasically or fall asleep during class are opted as "failures" and are not receiving the focus they need to bloom. If a class is progressing, the progression will have to stop due to numerous classroom disruptions or students claiming they dont understand the topic. Another thing is that sports are the only after- school club that is currently available other than tutoring/ mathletes. The prinicipal and vice- principal are excellent, and both take care of behavioral/ moral issues alike. Yet, as a student, I cannot honestly tell if the counseling department is the exact same. During my visits, I have been greeted warmly and have been helped through, but other students tell me otherwise. Only 2 AP classes, total 8 students.

That's a shame that you are having such a bad time. My 2 sons and daughter graduated from Silver Valley. I know for a fact that the teachers there went out of their way to help students. My son went to after school tutoring and it was very helpful for him. The staff actually knows most of the students there unlike Barstow or Hisperia. There isn't any gang activity there that I knew of. I can't believe that you are only given one chance then you are on your own. Their are rules in place for students to make up work. There must be a reason why you were not allowed to make up yours. My son was in the band and he learned a lot from what I know and the guitar program is miles ahead of Barstows. Our daughter still plays her's today because she enjoys it so much.

I moved here from a big city into little ole silver valley,and i absolutly knew that the change was going to be drastic,and very different.But that doesnt exclude it from being such a bad place.The teachers are rude and they dont care about the students.They give you one try and if you dont make it the first time they dont let you make the work up,know that you may be failing or close to failing and the best thing they can do is send you to after school tutoring which is ran by a french and algebra teacher.Probably the only two that actually give there time to helping the students.The music program that the have is horrible.They dont have an actual band,the choir is a joke,they have no orchestra,and the only instument that they actually half teach would be the guitar. Dont send your child there!

I think Silver Valley is a really good school. They aren't quite what they were when my oldest son went there. But they still have some of the best teachers that I have ever seen.

When we first got here I was afraid the school was going to be a bad place for my freshman daughter...But all worries are unsubstantiated because this small school is managed well and the kids (mine is in all AP classes) get a VERY good academic education. The teachers go above and beyond what is required and our daughter is extremely happy here. Due to limited funding, this school cannot offer the extent of extracurricular activities and the liberal arts program is extremely small, but the academics are great...

only a handful of teachers know what they are teaching and how to teach it effectively. I feel that those select few teachers are given very little support by the administration. I am also dissapointed at the huge drop in AP classes offered at this school especially the science ones. I agree that we should have the teachers take the high school exit exam and see if they can pass it. It seems there is a shortage of extracurricular activities at this school and the non-sport programs are not given enough support and students are only 'encouraged' to participate in sports.

The staffs as well as teachers are not concerned with students. The classes here are not challenging. The teachers accrete their options as facts. This is not a military friendly school. The councilors are a joke.

This school was very poor in college preparation. It seemed that higher level classes were all scheduled in the same time period. Thank goodness I only was there for one year!


Posted September 19, 2006

My child is now in the 10th grade at S.V.H.S. and though the year has just started, I already see the lack of communication between the school and parents, just like last year. Parent involvement would benefit the whole situation.

The school has a good record and the teachers show that they care for the students. Yet, the administration can sometimes be ineffective.

Posted March 9, 2006

Silver Valley High schools record is very good. they teach their students. And most of the teachers don't just give them work to do. But for the most part I would want my children to go there. But if they could make a change they should give the teachers the High School exit exams and see if the teachers can pass.

Drawing a student population from economically depressed Yermo-Daggett and situated in the middle of the desert, it's no wonder that Silver Valley has difficulty providing a quality program. Suffice it to say that if one is contemplating choosing employment in this area based upon quality of school, that might not be the wisest course of action...

It is an understatment when they say 'this is the worst school our kids have ever had to attend'. There is no communication between the school and parents. It appears that the teachers, counselors, and administrators are there just to get a pay check.

Posted February 23, 2004

Not the best but certainly not the worst. Have had no problems with teachers e-mailing me at anytime. Like all schools, some teachers are great and some are terrible. Worst part of this school is that the distance from our house to the school is almost 1 hour. The kids have to leave at 6am and if they are in after school activities, they don't return home til 7pm. The town of Barstow does not support our community in any way shape or form.

This has been the worst school my kids has attended. They are 2 years behind Montana. Not one adult working at the school takes anything on that resembles being responsible or responsibility. The administration and teachers rarely return calls.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
