Posted August 23, 2013

This is my daugherts second year at Silverton and honestly I am not that impressed. I expected much more from her Kindergarten school year and to me the teachings were very minimal/basic. Preschool basic in my opinion. I LOVE the "new" school building I must say and I have very high hopes for Silverton. I love the concept of the Museum school and structure of the program. I think this school has HUGE potential and I'm just hoping the new principal will implement this and bring it all forth. Im excited to see what this new school year (2013-2014) brings. Im crossing my fingers that it amazes and impresses me because I want to see my daughter grow and excel in her learning. I will be working with my daughter's teacher this year to understand her expectations for the children and let her know mine for my child. So fingers crossed and I will update at the end of the school year.

All three of my children have gone through Silverton and I am very pleased with the education and support they received. Many of my younger cousins, neices and nephews have also gone through or presently attending Silverton. It has now become a museum school and rigor in academic instruction has exploded. Due to the basic fundementals my children were taught at Silverton, they have become very successful high school and college students.I reccommend Silverton to any parent who would like for their cihild or children to receive a solid and well rounded education in a caring and safe environment.

Silverton has been a wonderful experience for my entire family. The new principal is dynamic and her positive attitude is contagious. The school has adopted a 'museum school' which means that the school is partnering with a ton of museums around Cincinnati. There are a lot of meaningful fieldtrips and programs coming into the school. The whole community has embraced the school, and there are volunteers EVERYWHERE. I would definitely recommend this school to any parent looking for a smaller elementary school (400 students) in a VERY large district.

This is by far the best school to send your children. The principal is awesome and the staff works as a team FOR the children. I have been in other schools in the district and this one wins hands down in every area. GO EAGLES!


Posted January 18, 2005

I have not experience a straight forward and honest relationship with staff as if relates to my child. No communication (although I'm at the school daily and see teachers and other staff)or repoire. They instruct and that's it. I recieved a formal letter from the school social worker regarding my childs tardieness. I was very upset because I felt that as often as I was at the school that an informal meeting (if it were necessary) should have occurded before a formal notification. My child is not a new student at the school. Academic program -OK. Extracurricular activies for the younger students -none exsistant. A small clickish parent group...I feel there is NO parent or student support at Silverton. If there is concern a parent has no where or no-one that would be interested or concerned enough to assist in addressing the concern.

About the tests


In 2010-2011, the Ohio Department of Education used the Value-Added Measure to show how much growth students made on the Ohio Achievement Test since the last school year. The state expects that student test scores will show an average year's worth of growth compared to test scores from the previous year. Ohio's Value-Added Measure is not the same as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), a federal measure which uses different criteria.

About the tests


Ohio uses the Performance Index to provide an overall indication of how well students perform on its standardized tests each year. The Performance Index scores are based upon how well each student does on all tested subjects in grades 3 through 8 and 10. Schools and districts earn anywhere from 1.2 points for each student scoring at the advanced level to zero points for each untested student. The Performance Index ranges between 0 and 120, with 100 as the statewide goal for all students.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
