This is an excellent school in comparison to other schools in Clark County. It is highly diversified, and there are many opportunities for participation in numerous extra curricular activities. While there is room for improvement, it was my experience that the majority of the teachers deeply cared about my academic success. I felt highly supported, and wish I could go back to take advantage of more of the programs that Silverado had to offer. I would not hesitate to send my own child to this school.

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.

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.
