    Outstanding school great teachers supportive environment. I think it's very culturally diverse and respectful of all cultures. For special needs students the environment and support is outstanding. We love the school!!!

    I absolutely love the school. My daughter is in 1st grade this year and I am very thrilled for her to get Mrs. Mays. She goes above and beyond what most teachers should do. Last year she had Mrs. Hogue and what a joy she was. I'm looking forward to see what teacher she gets in the years to come. By the way Ms. Blair the principal is a delight with the kids as well as the parents.

    Silvercrest is an excellent school for a Texas public school. There is solid parental involvement. We've been fairly pleased with our child's teachers and the administration has always been responsive to our questions. One weakness is the standard curriculum for the district. The bar seems to be set low.

    I had a second grader at Silvercrest (2006-2007) last year. My child's teacher was amazing and really went the extra mile for my child. You could tell she loved her job and really cared about the children. I don't know about the other grade levels but the second grade teachers were all very kind and helpful. My experience at Silvercrest was very postive and we're looking forward to third grade!

    I am a parent of 3 kids that all went to Silvercrest. My youngest child just finished 4th grade on 2006-2007 year. As a parent I believe this is an awsome school when my child needed that extra help his teachers were always there to give him that extra time. Lots of parents think that since they send there child to school it's all the teachers responsibilty to teach there child not all children learn at the same rate so us parents need to do our part at home too. The principal and all the staff is very nice and help full. Every school needs the structure or you wil have kids running all over the place. I believe that running a school and educating our kids takes team work. Silvercrest has great extracurricular activities like art music and PE. Keep up the good work Silvercrest were going to miss everyone.

    I had a very bad experience with my child teacher during the school year of 2006-2007. After several meetings it was very obvious that she was very inexperienced in the classroom. Finally I requested to have my child moved and he was moved to an excellent teacher which will no longer be teaching at Silvercrest next school year. I think were are loosing some excellent teachers to the new school with the former principle Mrs. Rogers. I hope the next school year for 2007-2008 will be a better learning opportunity for our children.

    I would not recommend this school at all! The teachers are very inexperienced and the turnover rate is very high. (Lots of first year teachers.)While the principal is nice she lacks strong leadership skills. The car rider line drop off and pick up is a nightmare.

    I think the school is average. My daughter is in Kindergarten and my son is learning more in pre-school than she is in Kindergarten. The teachers and administrators do not seem to truly care about the children. The principal seems to be a little unexperienced. The PE program is great.

    Academic program seems to be okay but when a child struggles they don't seem to get the help they need. Teacher turnover rate is very large. New teachers are left out of the loop - having to figure it out on their own which makes our children left behind. It's like a military school in the hallways - no talking hands to your sides walk a straight line. They get conduct marks & usually yelled at if talking in the hall but can get away with bullying and harassing other kids. Their disciplinary actions need major improvement. There is a lot of parent involvement which is great. I'm not happy with the principle and the way she runs the school hopefully it will get better soon.

    One would expect a high level of academics at this school but as schools go it's just about ok.

  • (8 years ago)

    The curriculum is decent though a bit more flexibility with respect to children who are beyond the basic curriculum would be a welcome improvement. Nice new facilities. Music and physical education are part of the regular curriculum. An active PTA and generally involved parents is a major plus for this school.

    Great school. Newly built. Teachers are new. The school still needs some structure. The principal seems to change every year.
