I think Silver Mesa is an adequate (not great) but adequate school for families with kids who have no problems. However, look elsewhere if your kids has disabilities but is higher functioning. They look the other way ALOT and the Resource Dept is more of a babysitting service. Also be careful about speaking up - it is easy to be blacklisted. Look elsewhere if you expect more than just the status quo.

I love this school. The staff and parents are incredibly friendly and helpful. They love the students and it shows in everything they do! The parents are involved in very positive ways from classroom help to fundraising to helping in various ways to make sure the school runs smoothly. The principal and teachers are caring and have high expectations of their students. The children play a bit part in this school as well in how respectful they are in adults and other students. I love this school!

If you are looking for a well-rounded eastside elementary school, take a look at Silver Mesa. Extracurricular offerings include a fabulous school choir, orchestra for beginning and intermediate strings, and math clubs for students needing extra tutoring. Literacy is a big focus with lots of reading incentives, a school wide literacy day, and reading goals for each grade. Great parental involvement and support, and teachers really know how to set the students up for success in all subject areas. In a great location, situated between two family parks with stunning mountain views, your student will enjoy everything about Silver Mesa while gaining a top-notch education. We've loved it!

I've been very pleased with the quality of the teachers and the organized programs at Silver Mesa. They have a Masterpiece Art programs for the students to learn about different types of art from the masters, and practice different mediums in producing their own masterpieces. They have an orchestra and plenty of singing time. I've never participated in a school with so much parental involvement. It's a great school- I highly recommend it!

My daughter is in Kindergarten, and it is a wonderful program. The teachers are involved and enthusiastic. I feel I am highly informed of my daughter's progress at school. I had my daughter in two different private schools for preschool, and we are as happy with Silver Mesa as we have been with the much more expensive private schools.
