At Silverwood School, we challenge our students to become confident, compassionate citizens and skilled, life-long learners - literate, motivated, and intellectually adventurous.
We, the community of Silverwood, believe in the potential and curiosity of every child. Rooted in the relationships of teachers to students and the school to its families, Silverwood strives for a balance of structure and spontaneity, responsibility and opportunity, and discipline and discovery.
