My whole experience in Silva Health Magnet School was a wonderful journey that made this school a second home and family for me. The environment was so welcoming and so supportive that all the teachers within the school made an impact in my life. The preparation the school offers for college was excellent, since it has made my transition from his school to college so easy and smooth. This school taught me what had work was and made a huge impact in my life. I would just like to see an improvement in the quality of food the district offers for Freshman and Sophomores.
Before entering Silva, my mind was drowned with expectations towards the school. I had heard multiple things about the school being difficult, but I was unsure at what level of difficulty it was at. Once I entered, it took me about two class periods to find out that I was going to have a short sleeping schedule. The thing about Silva, however, is not that it is difficult because the material is complex. It is a complicated school because the homework they assign is time consuming. You are forced to learn how to manage your time wisely and prioritize the most important classes or those you struggle with the most. In order to be engaged with the class it requires to do outside reading and do homework, something I had never done in my life before. What I love the most about this school is how it prepares you for college. The only thing that I would want to see different is the school pride, I wish there was more people engaging in extra activities.
