The change in principals took this school from great to horrible. I hope someone is paying attention to the details that are going on with the teachers and the students as this new principal leads that school. Very disappointing
The new principal suspended our 8 yr Autistic child stating that he shoved a fellow child. We were shattered emotionally. How could a special need kid understand the consequences ?? Long way to go for this school to know how to treat disabilities
Silverlake Elementary School was horrible at working with children with disabilities. Not only did they allow my daughter to go a year without testing for dyslexia, or even trying to teach her to read. She was ignored in her classroom, had a teacher who ignored the repeated bullying by other students, and was left out of activities. In the end, she left Silverlake Elementary unable to read, with low self esteem. If you plan to allow a child with disabilities to attend Pearland Public Schools, prepare ahead and hire either a professional advocate or an attorney.
Silverlake is outstanding!!. My oldest child was well prepared for fifth grade. Ms. Vaughn is very approachable and genuinely cares. Ms. Lopez, Ms. Sweeney, Ms. Young, and Ms. Edwards are excellent teachers.
Fantastic school and great staff. Principal Vaughn is very involved and very accessible. The teachers are more than willing to address any concerns. Bullying is not tolerated and addressed quickly. My son loved the majority of his teachers and my twins are looking forward to attending. The PTO works very closely with the staff to bring the kids more tools, activities and opportunities to try new things.
I have a 2nd grade, 1st grade, and special needs preschool student who all attend this school. We are extremely happy with the staff and education a this school. I do not feel like my students are only being taught to take the star test, but are being taught necessary basics. I used to work in schools before becoming a mother and can say that the adminstrative staff at this school is top notch. Thank you Mrs. Vaughn and Mrs Brown for all your hard work.
