Awesome science, Art, and Spanish teachers. Wonderful Ag program! Too much emphasis on sports and not enough on academics.

Silver is a small school, and the people a great! They were very willing and accommodating! However, they could improve their education quality. I didn't not feel prepared for college when I left.
My experience at Silver High School was not the greatest. There was a lack of involvement from the teachers and staff at the school that I wish was changed. Personally, I feel they did not attempt to prepare us enough for college and after high school as most teachers should. Overall, I had a very poor experience here at Silver High School.
