i loved this school when i was there the principal was so nice and she made the school interresting but now i am in 7th grade send ur child to this school


Posted November 6, 2004

I've gone to this school for all 6 years and it is definately a great experience to be able to attend here. I'm in 8th grade now and I still look back at my elementary years at Silver Lane. The teachers are great, and your children will enjoy every moment of it while getting a good education.

I was very disappointed with this school. The biggest issue is safety. There is no policy that is for the of the children. I have gone to the school to pick up my son and has seen young without any supervision.
