We are impressed with every aspect of our experience here. Both of my children are succeeding academically and socially. So pleased to have a wonderful community feel for our grade school years.

Silver Lake is an excellent school with emphasis on PARENT INVOLVEMENT ... it brings the family unit closer together ... !

Some of the most awesome teachers anywhere, Mrs. Clay being the best.


Posted December 16, 2004

For the last two years, I have 'Choiced' my daughter into this school because I believe it is a wonderful school. The Principal, Teachers and Administrative Staff are excellent role models and put the students' needs first. This will be my daughter's last year at Silver Lake and because of the excellence of this school, she will be more than ready for the challenges of Middle School. We moved to Middletown because of Silver Lake Elementary School and have not been disappointed.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Delaware used the Delaware Comprehensive Assessment System (DCAS) to test students in English language arts and math in grades 3 through 10, in social studies in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The DCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Delaware. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

There are not enough high schools in Delaware for GreatSchools to generate fair Ratings for high schools at this time.
