School Reviews

  • Recommended February 25, 2011 - This is probably one of the worst high schools you could enroll your child in. I would most deffinately never reccommend this school to ANYONE! There are always drugs floating around, and people doing bad things. The bathrooms are filthy, there is barely ever soap and paper towels. Most of the teachers really do not care about our education, and are quiet rude. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended January 10, 2011 - Silverado administrative staff is a nightmare from hell. We were warned by one of the counselor's about the academic and athletic programs. Overall the entire school is a nightmare. - Posted by Parent
