School Philosophy

To develop the whole child to their maximum potential thus enabling the child to lead a productive and rewarding life while engendering an attitude of learning as a lifelong undertaking.

Silverdale Elementary Mission Statement

Silverdale Elementary School is committed to working with the parents and the community to provide quality, child-centered education. We believe that everyone can learn through their daily experiences. We all strive to do our personal best, maintaining, high expectations of ourselves and those around us.


*Makerspace Learning Lab*

“The Makerspace Learning Lab is an opportunity for kids to do more hands-on learning, experimenting, figuring out ideas, concepts and designs which are linked to the curriculum"

A recent article was written in the Mission City Record outlining the benefits of the Makerspace.
