Silverado High School Reviews
I was very pleased with my daughter's education
My daughter who graduated in '05 flew right through her 4 years. I never once had to march into the school at all in 4 years. When she was in the 12th grade, I thought she was still in the 10th grade. I mean she flew right through. Without incidents, without problems, without issues. I was very pleased with her education. I was hardly in the school, didn't have to be, she had her schooling in control, she knew where she was going, she knew what she wanted, and graduated. Everything turned out beautifully with this child of mine whose now 26. Time just flew right by me. I was very pleased with her education at Silverado High School without any incidents.
I don't see nor do I hear of any real problems with Silverado High School. Both of my children attend/ed there.
The Administors at this school really need to deal with certain teachers and coaches, when you have a coach tell you(the parent) right to your face, that your son wasn't picked for the team because he and the other coaches think it's a waste of their time to work with him because they he won't progress any further this year or next year, but he can try out again next year but he won't even be considered to be a part of any of the teams. really?? how does one get away with this??
this school is all around Terrible. In my 4 years there i only respected a few teachers (Wesemann and Heater mostly). the education here is a joke half of the classes are just show up and you pass, i barely showed up to some classes after awhile and i still passed with a b average. the administrators all need to be fired, especially fisher. thats not all the worst employees at that school are anyone who has anything to do with coaching no matter what it is, they pour on the work for some but leave their special jockstraps an A and no work.
Unfortunately, the staff itself is far from the worst thing about that school. when it was almost like the standard H.S. experience until the later years when the school became flooded with assholes and jersey shore F***s.
if your moving here or zoned for this school go somewhere else!
i thought as a parent that i must pick a high for my kids that will allow them equal opp. i seach for the school, before i seach for the home..this school was my second choice...i enroll my kids (9th@10th)..big mistake..i attended meeting with the princ. once a month...visit classes room....still couldnt spend enough time on campus soo my kids would not be single out..just to have more issue then expected....what i learned is that this side of town have kids that have drugs problem or how the label it (trying to find themselves) while the other side have kids that has behavioral issue or as they label it (gangs and drug dealers)..i feel some of those staff days should be diversity days..
If your kid can't handle coaches pushing them at practice then how are they supposed to respond in the real world when people's jobs and money are on the line. Kids need to follow instructions and be pushed by their coaches and when they succeed the coached at silverado are right there to pat them on the back. SHS admin can't do anything about a kid being yelled at during football practice. That's why Silverado's sports teams are good.
Coaches need to not get in these kids faces and curse at them at practice, once again things going on and no one does anything about it!!!!! seriously SHS administrators, please do your jobs!!!!!!! this should not be allowed!!!!!!
I was pleased with the Autism program, liked the staff.
Administrators have no regards to us parents, they don't care what we have to say, the basketball coach himself has made very bad comments to parents and students, and no one does anything about it. very dissatisfied with school, it's staff and administrators.
Very Badly operated school, basketball coah chooses favorites and teachers talk down to kids, and make very discrimantory remarks to kids as well. horrible school
Not a big fan of this school, dislike it, staff and all.
i really enjoyed my time at silverado they had so much going on and it was a wondreful place to be since school is half your life
