My daugher attended Kinder at Silbernagal and for the most part I was very impressed by the teachers and staff. She has excelled and is well prepared for first grade. I am not happy with the level of customer service from the front end administration. Overall, I am pleased with her kinder education. I did learn the P.E program has no funding and is struggeling to keep kids active due to lack of supplies. All jump ropes, etc are supplied by the PTO and teachers.

I am very impressed by this school. After the hurricane this school took care of not only my son, but my sister-in-law's daughter. They made sure they that they did not get left behind and they have help my son improve my son's reading level. I live just right outside of the school zone, but I am going to do whatever it take to get my son back here again next school year. This is just awesome.

This school is wonderful! Mr. Scruggs is amazing. What a great principal. The teachers are wonderful as well, but the front office staff very rude.

I absolutely love this school. My two kids, 7 and 9 love it too. My son had an ARD and the Special Education department and teachers are very professional and the team keeps you up to date on changes with your child's performance and goals. One time I went to an ARD meeting for my son and my husband went with me. He was shocked and amazed on how many adults were in this meeting for just one little boy having trouble learning. At that point, he was convinced that this was the best school by far. My son had a very wonderful teacher, Mrs. Teague and Naiser, and my daughter's great teacher was Mrs. Moore.
