One of the issues here is that parents don't report when there is an issue with their child. I know as fact, that the principal addresses each and every issue. This is especially true when bullying is involved. I would make sure to get the whole story before passing judgement.
They don't control there students, My daughter is always being hit by other students boys and girls. The princable won't even talk with the students. I will be pullling my child from this school and would not recomend this school.
My daughter started attending SJH in the 6th grade. Prior to transferring to SJH, she attended East Moline public schools. And overall I was VERY satisfied w/ the E.M. school district, until she enrolled at Glenview. Since enrolling @ SJH, overall I am pleased with the quality of the education she has received. Although she hit a few bumps in the road early on, the faculty and staff never gave up on her. The teachers, principle and counselor are all inspiring. And I wish they knew how significant they have been in helping to mold my daughter into the more mature young lady I have the honor of raising!!
Silvis Junior High adequately prepares students for attending high school. It has a well established music program with an excellent reputation. Sports are available for 5-8th grades. Parental involvement is getting better.
Silvis has a great education program for a small school. It is a school that is concerned about the education of the children and puts that first. The leadership from the Superintendent on down is great and the teachers are also excellent. Silvis has worked hard to keep its extra-curricular programs during a very difficult financial time so that the students would receive a total experience during their elementary and junior high school years. Silvis School District #34 is committed to the whole child.
