    Silver Sands Has excellent teachers. No bullying and a sweet environment for the kids to learn in. There are communication issue with admin but teachers are good at communicating about what is going on in the classroom. There are things that we give up being in a small charter school. There a few after school clubs but really nothing major like band or choir. BUT we gain much more individual student attention and freedom for the kids to be themselves and not worry about some of the harshness you find in traditional public schools. Overall we have been happy there for the schools entire existance (I think 5 years) It is not perfect but no place is. You have to find the right fit for your child. Montessori is not for everyone but it works for my kids. As for parent involvement it could be better but I think because families don't live in the immediate area surrounding the school it makes it harder for them to be involved. Great teachers!

    My children have made great friends at this school. The school does not have good communication with the parents. For instance last year they had water damage and moved half the school to another location on a long term basis. This year they did not tell the parents that the middle school would be located elsewhere and I went to the wrong location to pick up my child. They have not updated records from the emergency cards they collected at the beginning of the school year. When I get the rare communication it's to my old email address that was on file from last year. I give it three stars for the parents and kids. The teachers and principal need to get the emergency card info put into their system -it's October. I heard a communication went out to some people yesterday - I haven't received it. When I emailed the office at the beginning of the year asking for better communication this year and giving my proper info I got nothing back. No communication.
