    I agree with the previous comment about parent involvement. Silva elementary has the capability of outperforming other schools if it were to take a more aggressive role in letting parents know how their children are doing. Mid six-week progressive reports with medium to low grades are an indicator of our children's progress but I have yet to see what is suggested to improve their performance. 'Simply the best is' is their motto let me see more action and less words. Come on Silva Elementary staff let us see the best on a personal level not a dedicated few. Overall 3 1/2 stars

    Silva Elementary is a great school however I am a person who believes that if we are doing good today then tomorrow we can do even better. Our schools need to strive to accomplish the unimaginable so that are children can benefit from an excellent well recognized education. I believe the Silva elementary needs to involve parents more in the education of their children.
