I have children in K and 1 at this school, and so far I am moderately impressed. Since starting at the school this year, both have made adequate gains in both Math and LAL. The Teachers are friendly and knowledgable. Unfortunately, the student population does not appear to have the support of well-educated parents. This directly effects the test scores and the learning environment. While I value the socioeconomic diversity, I understand there is only so much the school can do to combat the effects of poor nutrition, lack of meaningful home education, and economic instability. I plan to keep my children enrolled here, but with the understanding that I must continue to challenge my child in meaningful ways outside of school. They have both made good friends here, and I talk to them daily about not following or joining in any misbehavior. The principal (new, as of this writing) seems to be doing a great job. My children are engaged in the events and activities of the school. Office staff are always helpful. I have observed, however, that the school holds a TON of fundraisers. Plan to spend $20/month on fundraisers. Overall, this is a nice diverse school.
The art program at Silver Run is the best I have ever seen. They study the masters of art while creating unique pieces.
