The teachers in the school are excellent and there are many extracurriculars students can be involved in. The honors program especially is excellent and the school is new and in top condition. It has a great learning atmosphere and in all, is a great place.

My son is a junior this year and taking great electives. He has some very enthusiastic teachers there as well as ones that just make him take notes. Obviously if you're going to get through to kids, you have to make it interesting for them people! The amenities that the school itself has though are fantastic, they did a great job affording the teachers and kids with some of the most up to date tools.

The class your child was enrolled in may have been closed due to low numbers of enrollment in the class. It is not always the school that dictates the running of a class but the number of children who have interest. They can not run classes with one or two students, it makes no sense logically or economicaly

I believe that Silver Lake has done an unsatisfactory job with teaching my children. There is little electives and teachers do not seem to have an overall interest in the children. I made the decision to move from Boston to Kingston after learning about the newly built school, hoping it would give my children a better learning environment when one of them was an 8th grader and the other 2 were in elementary school. Unfortunately, I was wrong. Where they last attended school teachers had a much greater interest in helping the children during their current lives and helped encourage them to reach a brighter future, at Silver Lake I observed a lack of want from the staff to help the children. Also, their athletic department seem to be below other schools and their MCAS testing scores are lower then other schools in the district. I was not happy with SLRHS.

Most teachers are nice people, the principal has much involvement in the school, and the technology is amazing.

Silver Lake Regional High School has enormous potential to be an outstanding school for both students and staff. After the construction of our new building, I believe many discomforts among students in the building will be alleviated. The quality of the teachers is sorely lacking . I do not believe that the teachers are given enough structural guidelines to their lesson plans and grading policies. It is very difficult to understand what direction the teachers are going. Most teachers skip over lessons and are lacking vital organizational planning skills. In my college prep-honors classes I am very pleased on the amount of effort 4 of my 7 teachers are putting into their jobs, while 3 of my teachers fail to facilitate class issues, fail fully explain case studies and lessons, and fail to return graded assignments in a timely manner. Our administrators are doing an exceptional job facilitating behavioral issues among students without disturbing the classes. Overall, Silver Lake is a quality high school but the science and mathematics departments are un-exceptional.

Silver Lake Regional High School has provided my children excellent educations where they have been able to go onto outstanding colleges in their fields. They were better prepared than many students they went to college with to meet the rigorous demands of their courseloads. They were praised by their professors for being so well prepared. Silver Lake parents need to support their high school and its teachers. They put in tireless hours to educate our children.

Just so you know, Someone posted in August saying that Silver Lake had to pay to ride the bus. There is a long story with that but the fact is that it was Pembroke paying not Silver Lake Pembroke had to charge because they were building new schools and they had to add extra bus routes. There is much more that goes on behind it, but in general this is a great school...it was a little crowded but most teachers dont punish students for being late. Just thought I'd back up my wonderful and loved school!

My daughter graduated from Silver Lake with honors and is now on the Deans List at PITT. I love this school and it's staff and students who go here.

There are far too many stundents to fit comfortably in the school. I've heard it's hard to get to class on time, and the students get punished for being late. They can't even get through the hallways, and they are punished for it. Most of the teachers are great and know what they are doing. The extracurricular activities are wonderful! It's just costly. Students even have to pay $100 just to ride the bus to school. This isn't fair at all! If children are expected to show up for school, transportation should be provided for free, it is a public school after all.
