I have 4 children that go to this school and we absolutely love it! The education they have received is top notch. I love that they are hearing about God every day in the classroom as well. My husband and I go hand in hand with this school.
I could not be happier with the teachers and the level of academic education my child is receiving. Finally a school that diligently focuses on reading, writing and arithmetic in a warm environment.
I really cannot recommend this school enough. Both my daughter, 6 and Son, 7 go there and are in Kindergarten and 1st grade. The advances they have made have been incredible and they are doing things with little struggle that local public schoolchildren are doing 2 grades higher. The amount of time, attention, and detail that the teachers have with the kids in these small classes really pays off.
Great school . The teachers are extremely caring. You can see they take interest in every single student and want them to succeed. We could not be happier with the quality of education our child is receiving at Silver State.
Wonderful school! The teachers are warm and committed to the children. The classrooms are geared toward making learning fun and interesting. Silver State has provided our family everything we are looking for in a school.
This is the best school. They start taking kids potty trained at 30 months. The achedemics are serious, and they are completely committed to caring for the child. I am so glad that both my kids have been able to attend.
I was there many years ago. But my mother was told by a teacher that she did not make enough money to give my sister the training she deserved. Also there rules are or were very stringent and if you didn't follow them in and out of school you were considered to be following a double standard. You were looked down upon if you did not abide by there rules. They didn't stop to realize that God does not judge you because you are not the way they (the school) says you should look like or be like. God excepts you as you are.
We have been a part of this school for over 6 years. My boys have been taught a Christian based education that they have truly enjoyed. The teacher's involvement has been excellent. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone who wants their children to be taught that God is the center of their life. The only thing that would be a disappointment would be the lack of extra-curricular activities.
Not a fan. Be sure to review all that has transpired here in 2009 and 2010 and why the high school is closing and once again a new principal. My concerns were with the administration and with the preschool faculty. Problem to me seems to be overly religious types who don't deal with reality and ignore bad behaviors of their members regardless of harm to students. I pulled my kids out.
I love this school! I have been in this school since preschool. The best part is each teacher concentrates on each student to help them do the best they can!
My daughter attended the 1/2 day K4 last year and is currently in Kindergarten. The faculty are great. They not only build knowledge in their students, but also help them learn great life lessons. We are thrilled with the academic achievement of our daughter. She is reading just about everything we put in front of her. Her language and math skills are impressive (she even corrects her parents when we dont say something right). The teachers do a great job in building a solid foundation for future learning.
I gave 2 kids that attend this school. They are in Kindergarten and first grade. I have been very impressed with the level of education that they have been receiving. My 5 year old has already learned to read and has an interest in reading and learning that I wish I would have had at her age. My first grader shows similar interest with exceptional results. I highly recommend this school to anyone that wants to give their kid(s) a quality education in a Christian enviroment.
I was invited to attend a friend's K5 graduation at Silver State last year. After being completely blown away by the program the students put on (including a display of all subjects learned, most impressively their incredible reading skills at such a young age), I immediately decided I wanted my child in this school! My son is now in K4 this year, and I am daily amazed at what he is learning, not only academically, but also socially, behaviorally, and on and on I could go. I love his little friends, and the teachers are not only professional, but also love the students and it shows greatly!
This school has very little extra-curricular activites. There aren't clubs that a child could join. There is very little variety in sports. Many important life skills are not being taught at this school. CFS doenst even exist at Silver State. If one wanted thier child's horizons broadened, then i do not reccommend placing your child in this school.
Silver State is a private school with a Christ-centered basis for all areas of teaching. Most of the curriculum is taugh from a Biblical veiwpoint. The teachers are godly men and women who truly care for the children they are teaching. Available to the elementary students are classes such as physical education, library, music, choir, band, art and computer. Parents are welcome to participate in many areas of the students school day from lunch duty, library helpers, or playground supervision.
This school is what is to be called bias. If one does not believe a certain way, then a person is discriminated against. SSBS is a discrimanatory school. Not as in race, but things such as sexual orientaion, beliefs, and the way people dress. This school does not believe in expressing oneself in the way one dresses. Students are prohibited to wear hooded sweatshirts or shirts with words on them- but this is outrageous. This school discriminates on those who are not exactly identical to them. Contrary to another comment posted yes Silver State does have a main religion- Baptist. That is why the school is called Silver State Baptist School. They teach and preach agains Catholosism or any other Christian-based religion. If one is a conservative Baptist, then I highly recommend this school- otherwise.
High college prep academics and music programs. All atendees/families have a very similar faith (Baptist). This is a non-demoninational school, but emphasis on relgious education is centered around Baptist belief system. Conservative dress code. High expectations on student behavior and self government. Low student/teacher ratios. Teachers try to build relationships with students, not just teach them. Limited classes outside of basic academics, but working on including more variety. Great school.
