Overall, I felt Silver Creek was "just ok", but when we moved out of the area for one year and my daughter had to attend another school, I could actually feel the difference between the average and the exceptional. Although the new school was considered "top notch" in the country, it always took me 6-8 calls within a 7 day period, to finally have the privilege of a return call from "top notch", just to be greeted with an "I don't care" attitude by 6 of the 7 staff members. What a relief it was for me to move back into the area of Silver Creek. Enrolling my daughter was effortless because the staff was truly caring and professional. With every visit to Silver Creek, I was treated with respect and care. I can honestly say that the members of the staff will go above & beyond to address any concerns you may have and do their best to solve any problems. So to the "top notch" school -forget it kid. To Silver Creek -Exceptional Service as always. Thank You : )

I agree with the other reviews Silver Creek is not a school to attend if you need an actual teacher to teach you. Silver Creek is also not the school to attend if you are not an AP qualified student. This school caters it's curriculum strictly towards AP students. The staff here, teachers as well as counselors do not care about their students. Parents are never notified of there students progress other than the 6 week progress reports. If your child does attend this school make sure to stay on top of their teachers - because they will allow them fail. I believe the staff feels it looks better for the school to have their students in AP classes and FAIL than to have them attend standard classes. Good Luck

Although the school is rundown many improvements are being made. The school has a wide range of AP classes and a very active ASB. All activities are planned and run by the Leadership class. AP classes are primarily taken by students of Asian decent. Unfortunately nearly 90%+ students of Hispanic decent are failing more that one class(Survey done in 2006). Silver Creek's student population is very diverse although most students are either of Asian decent. Downsides that the school has are several classes being held in portables or rundown classrooms, bathrooms are campus are dirty and small.

Silver creek has some advanced educational programs, but most of the students are not qualified enough to take these classes. The athletics are not very good, and some classes are in trailers. The staff doesn't help in any student decisions, so they have to do all the dances and car washes by ourselves. There is some violence on school grounds, but less than schools like Mt.Pleasant. Buildings are poor, but that's because of poor funding. Should get some funds and try to make the campus more updated and more sightly. Otherwise, one of the better public schools in the area.

Only go here if you think you are able to make your own decisions and self-learn. The only students who are able to succeed at this school are the ones who choose to take the many AP courses offered, find out about other exams on their own and take them, and pass with high scores. It's almost like a college, because the students organize all events including fundraisers and dances on their own. That's why the leadership class is wonderful. The staff barely helps, that's the bad part, and the school is poor. So if you aren't ready for this, don't go here. Plus, about 90% of the staff here are B****es, so beware.

PROS: lots of AP classes, many opportunities
CONS: self_learn, find out about everything on your own, staff

This is a great school. Most student that go to this school is from middle class and better family, thus there's less problem with smoking / gang ... Recommend.
