    We just moved to the area and our children attend Silas (K and 3rd grade). We love this school! Princapal and teachers are wonderful and very dedicated. They have a wonderful programs called P.A.W.S. that promotes good behavior and respect for each other. Curricularium is appropriate and challenging. Best school in the city!
