The employees seem miserable working here. Website is out of date and has false misleading information. Asked to speak to principal and was nowhere in sight. The whole school looks disorganized. Wonder where all the money is going? No class schedules till first day of school. What a mess!! So disorganized.

I'm a parent of 2 boys Silvestri. The teachers and staff care about the and their families. I'm very with school seeing as through Vegas has a bad reputation of schools caring about students.

I have been in this school 6th, 7th and 8th grade. This school is a good but not the best. I'am an njhs (National Junior Honor Society) member and it has very talented students. The teachers were amazing but their were some teachers that weren't so great. The orchestra and band teachers were excellent! Also many others teachers. This school helped me progress as well as others. This school has a lot of negative kids and that is expected anywhere you go there will be people that don't try there best and don't really care. I use to be the one that didn't care and now I'am an A and B student. If your looking for good teachers that stay after school to help you and pretty good kids this is a good school. It may not be the best but it has what you need. Hope this helped you!

Dean has been the worst school district I've had my children attend very rude when trying to discuss a simple matter with me and continued talking over me and would not let me finish my sentences. I was not trying to argue but he turned everything into an arguement.

This is the first year my kid is attending this school and so far he hates it. I don't blame him for this. Some of the policies they try to implement are just absurd. One of the policies i'm talking about is the tardy policy. Please let the parents do the life teaching and YOU concentrate on teaching the school subjects. Your views on how kids should act on society are not 100% of what it should be. THAT'S your OPINION!!! I am all for education and boy do we need it here in Nevada. Instead of concentrating on made up policies please concentrate on educating and the parenting to who it should be (the parents). So far its just been a quarter of the school year and i will post as the year goes bye. I like to give second chances.

Some of the WORST behavior I have EVER seen! The children pass through my neighborhood vandalizing property and using language that used to be limited to adults...or sailors, I should say. Even after having contacted the school repeatedly, there has been no resolution to my complaints! I would NEVER send my children here, and discourage any prospective parents against it!

Should be 0 stars, the staff seems too busy working an fixing computers to care about quality education. They seems obsessed with technology and emails. They seem to want technology to teach kids and not teachers, no wonder the local news agencies report layoffs in the district while they are spending a million on Ipads.

This school is not what i would suggest for you kid . I've been going to this school and i dred going . The only reason i go is because of the other students . The deans are very strict . To the point of hugging another student is detention . The teachers there don't understnad we have other classes and other homework they assign us packets at some points are due the next day . Like in science 5 page packet due tomarrow . People that go to this school refer to it as 'ghetto' . That's all i had to say .

Silvestri is an okay school. It is safe, but there are very mean kids that go there. You get threatened for no reason, but usually nothing happens. The rules arent that great, you arent even allowed to hug people. Overall its an okay school. I'm in 8th grade, and ive been attending since 6th

Silvestri is such an excellent school! You'll always have fun while learning at the same time! The teachers and staff are always there to help. They're so easy to get along with, that a lot of students end up being friends with them. Silvestri is a very active school that always makes sure a student is able to succeed. The school offers programs like tutoring, music, art, sports, and etc. After attending there for 3 years, it has been the best years in my life (so far).

After finishing 6th grade in all accelerated classes, my daughter has been encouraged to excel, making straight a honor role for the first time! Like any school, more sport team activities (i.e., volleyball) woud be appreaciated. Scholatically, Silvestri is meeting my daughter's needs, and the teachers rate between acceptable to excellent!
