I have had three children attend Silverdale Elementary, one of whom has learning disabilities; my youngest is still there. The entire staff is amazing from administration to office staff to teachers to paraeducators.
I am extremely disatisfied with the leadership role from the principal and the accountability of her actions. I wish I had more than 1062 characters left to sumarize my distaste, but in a short saying...."rude and unprofessional".
I was very disappointed with this school. The leadership does not establish adequate expectations from their staff. The staff is ill informed on programs/options offered by the district to meet the needs of their students. If you have a very typical easygoing student you may be satisfied with this school. However, many students assigned to this school request being transfered to other schools.
Great kids, committed parents..but there is not enough information shared by the school/PTA leadership. Additionally, the extracurricular activities seem tailored to a small portion of the students. Also no recognition/programs for gifted students who have stayed at this school.
Great school, great teachers! Only drawback is they take all of the "gifted" and send them to Emerald Heights (probably why they have a 9 rating).
The staff is wonderful, their primary focus is the kids...not money for the school like so many other schools these days.
My niece and nephew go there and love it!! They have lots of fun family activities and great teachers!!
We love Silverdale Elementary for its great teachers, staff, and activities for the kids.
Wonderful school! What impresses me the most is the focus on academics. Not only do teachers push each child to do their best, but this school offers multiple before and after school 'clubs' focused on bettering a child's academics,including a writing club, science club, math olympiads, destination imagination, art club, etc. So much to offer a child and to encourage them to enjoy learning!
The school does a great job all around from what I have seen this year. Great support with all the staff. Look forward for 2005-2006 school year.
This schools takes care of the average student. The child that excels or has a learning difference has no direction. Stall tactics were used to keep children at the same pace in the classroom.
We are new to the school this year in 4th grade! So far, I am impressed with the leadership and parent involvement. The students, staff and teacher enthusiasm is well above average for every program! 4th grade's Mrs. Zimny is the best!
