This is a warm, inviting, safe and great local school. The staff all truly care about their job and more importantly the children at the school. From the ladies in the front office, to teachers, up to the principal. The principal runs a fantastic school, is always visible and available. Parent involvement is highly encouraged and it shows. I feel so lucky that this is the school my children get to go to. A great school all around.
I'm new here, but I've heard very good comments about the school. I hope to be as good as they say
My children attended Silver Shores for several years. The experience was incredibly disappointing. Early in their school careers, both my children were identified by the school as high-achieving. Despite functioning 2 grade levels ahead of their peers (reading and math), minimal was done to accommodate their learning needs. Sadly, their academic potential was entirely wasted while attending Silver Ridge. During the time my children attended the school, we were extraordinarily active in the school community. It became evident that what was occurring with our children was not a single isolated incident. It was the standard ill-informed method of operation at the school. While the social environment at the school was fair (not great by any means), there were also repeated scenarios where the school was ignoring bullying and other negative forms of student behaviors. Our children have been privately schooled since leaving Silver Ridge....WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! The instruction they receive is meaningful, and they absolutely love learning! While we are happy for our children, it does sadden us that so many families are "stuck" with a substandard school like Silver Ridge.
Amazing School. My daughter has Special Needs and the staff and administration have gone so far above and beyond to take care of her and my family. PTA is constantly involved and hard working. Teachers have been inventive and caring. Even with the tough standards set by the FCAT, Silver Ridge Teachers go above and beyond.
Everyone from the principal to the lunch staff are absolutely amazing to work with. My daughters experience as a student is most memorable and us as parents assured that our child was given the skills to move on to her next chapter in life. Middle school. We are truly blessed to have our child in this school.
It is an excellent school because of the community atmosphere and the parent involvement. The teachers are great and they use all the latest technology and tools to help the students succeed.
The teachers are exceptional and my son actually enjoys going to school. I am in constant communication with his teacher and know exactly what is going on in the school.
Great school. My children love it! What is better than having your children enjoy education. Priceless!
Great school in a great neighborhood with amazing, dedicated teachers and parents! Even if private school cost me nothing I wouldn't switch! Love it!
Both of my children love this school...they both have had amazing teachers, we are so blessed!! They have received amazing educations here and are thriving!! It truly is the best in the west :)
Silver Ridge Elementary has the perfect combination of activities that make a well rounded student. The entire staff works hard to do what is best for the kids and the parents are very involved and dedicate a lot of their time to help in our childrens education....this combination makes a great school. 'It takes a village to raise a child,' that is the motto here!
The faculty all put so much effort into helping the kids learn and enjoy there days at school. The school has so many fun things that they do that help educate the children while they enjoy themselves and there are alot of parents that donate alot of there own time to help the teachers and students in making the school what it is.
Great activities for children to learn and great teachers. Me grandson loves this school.
Excellent school! The teachers, administration, staff and parents all work as a team for the kids.
As a teacher at a Weston school, I have chosen not to bring my children with me. They attend Silver Ridge and have been for the last six years. The staff is amazing and the principal is easy to approach. I have never had a bad experience and find the office staff friendly and helpful. Personal best and courtesy are staples of the curriculum where every child is valued for their ability. Awesome ESE staff!
Excellent afterschool program, chorus, math club, library club, debate-high parental involvement
This has been a great school for my daughter. They really focus on academics and self-esteem. I wish they taugh all the way through high school!
Silver Ridge is truly a school where the students, teachers, and families all play an important role. Academic expectations are high and the students know what is expected of them. From kindergarten through fifth grade studetns are able to stretch their learning to their ability by participating in discussions and hands-on activities in addition to traditional reading and writing lessons. There are music, art, and P.E. specials, but there are few special programs for the regular student body. Aftercare students have some sports and dance programs available however. The level of parent involvement at Silver Ridge is very high. From volunteering at the classroom level to spending time on PTA parents are ready and willing to do whatever is asked. Silver Ridge is repeatedly awarded the Five Star award which includes not only parent volunteers but students volunteering in the community. I feel lucky to teach at Silver Ridge.
This school is truly innovative, diverse and a pioneer in education. The teachers are all very involved and communicative with the parents. It is prepared to and handles children with special education needs as well as handicapped kids. My son started Pre-K as part of a special program through FDLRS for speech delayed and has made leaps and bounds. I am convinced that Silver Ridge is the reason. The classes are not over-crowded and the teachers are wonderful. It is my belief that Silver Ridge Elementary is providing the level of education one has to pay to get for free.
