Silliman is a school where you can feel safe sending your children and know they are in a caring environment. The teachers, coaches, staff, and other students truly care about each other. I am happy to send my children here and feel they are getting a great education and more.

Silliman is a wonderful school! I went there, and my children go there. My kids are not into sports or cheerleading and they get along just fine and love the extra attention they get in the school. In today's world a school like Silliman is rare.

Silliman is a great academic institution and sets the bar in this area for education! Great leadership from administrators on down. Teaches children how to be a productive citizen and accountable for their own fate. Silliman has and I hope will remain a safe haven for our children in the crazy, fast pace world. The kids that attend Silliman are so polite and respectiveful, and that is thanks to the school staff and good parenting.

I have two children enrolled in Silliman,they or high school and primary,I must say they will not be going back next year.The leadership at Silliman needs improvement.There is to much energy put into football,basketball,cheerleading,etc.And not enough on teaching.The principal needs yo be replaced,as does most of the staff.

Silliman Institute needs lots of improvement,the staff have one agenda SPORTS;CHEERLEADING; If they cared more about each student and there individual needs this would be a much better enviorment for children. The principal should focus more on what his staff is not doing to help these kids. Someone should be watching HIM much more closely also.

I think Silliman needs lots of improvement,the staff or rude and uncareing.What matters at Silliman is who you know and how much money you have.

It is a great school. My daughter and granddaughter go there and they love it. It is a great Christian school and it revolves totally around academics. The sports and extracurricular activities have also really helped my daughter get good grades and stay away from things some kids get into at her peticular age.

I've had two sons and now two grandaughters attend this school over a period of 20+ years and the quality of education has been excellent. Our boys went on to a Louiisiana college and a Florida college and are successful men in their fields. I feel they got a very good secondary education at this school.

'All three of my children have gone to Silliman since they were 5 years old. Silliman is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal, Mr. Poke, was kind and knew each child by name. He is a great example of a leader and I miss seeing him as well as the other staff members as all of my children have graduated.Thank you Silliman for bringing out the best in my children and giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go out into the world!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
