Silver Oak Montessori is inclusive and a safe environment. The teacher and faculty here genuinely care for the student and want to see everyone succeed. Montessori education provides unique perspectives on life, social responsibilities, and self. Silver Oak gives a supportive environment to cultivate self-advocacy, leadership, and life skills. Since the school is so new, there are some issues, such as lack of resources, especially in the sports department, but it's improving with every year. Overall, Silver Oak is a unique and positive environment to grow and learn a student and human.

This school definitely tries to be different from other high schools. Instead of just giving students lessons and homework assignments directly and objectively, it adds a kind of subjective tone to it as well. Assignments are more writing and group based. Seniors can explore potential careers through internships. The liberal value the school promotes allows for a diverse student body.
Despite these positive attributes, the school does have negative ones. While some teachers do a good job teaching, others are unprofessional. The school's Montessori methods may also hinder other, such as the fact that AP classes are not offered. This also eliminates the competition for academic excellence, which in my opinion prevents students from reaching their full potential. School clubs and activities are not as varied and diverse as I want it to be.
Overall, I think this school is a decent is school.
This is a very small school. I really like the Montessori method and I feel like the founder had a good vision, but in practice it fails in many areas. It seems there is a severe shortage of qualified teachers. There are many windows that are broken, and a lack of space for the increasing student body. This school is better than the other schools in the area, but not by a lot. The teaching and academics can often feel very unprofessional. The teachers often fail to provide structured curriculums, and if they do, they do not meet national standards for education.
