Sadly we had high hopes for this school. The academic standards are high however I cannot say the same for the faculty. Many of the teachers are inconsiderate brash and uncaring to say the least. When we left messages with our concerns for the principal to return our call to discuss our personal experiences in detail we never got a return call or email. It amazes me that being polite and professional is simply not a consideration from the top down. Very disturbing and concerning for many of us parents.

It is by far the best elementary school around! The teachers are incredible. There is tremendous support from the community. And as such it's an amazing learning experience for the children.
The teachers are great and the extra curricular programs are second to none. The kids are given great opportunities to supplement standard academics with music programs plays lunch time sports and after school science. Exceptional parental involvement creates additional opportunities for the students. I can't think of a better learning environment.

This school is the best. The parent participation is unbelievable. My daughter loves to return there every year. The material she's learning in 2nd grade is material I didn't learn until years later. The kids really seem great and the teachers are energetic and enthusiastic.
Silver Oak has the best parent involvement of any school I've seen. The teachers there are amazing!
