    "Bottom line: Parents, you need to check out this wonderful school before you decide against it based on scores. This school has fantastic leadership and is firmly on its way to getting all the pretty numbers and letters that appeal to us parents, but with the astounding mix of children/families at Lake Silver this task will always be harder than in more homogenous locations. Get in on this school. Visit. Talk to the principal. Tour the retro facilities. Give it a chance. If you knew the scores my kids were making on the Big Tests and the appreciation/life lessons they've been getting along the way, you would understand why Lake Silver is a great great place and worth considering. The faculty and staff couldn't possibly work harder for our kids."

    "Lake Silver has been a great school for my three children. The PE Department is excellant, encouraging health and fitness. The Music teacher is great and she spends her personal time on extra activities like a Drama Club and chorus. The after school program is run well. There is no guidance counselor at this time which I find unfortunate. There has been no attempt th hire one this school year (2005-2006). There are some good veteran teachers at this school. There are no aides in the regular ed classes. They were cut last year. This makes parent participation very important. There is a strong PTA. Overall, it is not the Lake Silver of five or six years ago that we all came to know & love, but it is better than most."

    "The school has some good teachers that make up for it's old appearance. The gifted program is one day per week and the music teacher is excellent."

    "The academics at Lake Silver are wonderful, my children have attended Lake Silver for more than 10 years and they have continued to succeed all the way through high school. The parent involvement is great, it is a family place that is accepting of everyone. The staff is very loving, caring and talented and the new principal is a dynamic leader. I fear most don't understand the FCAT grading system and won't give our great school a chance based on the grade it was assigned. There are so many factors to the overall grading of a school. Lake Silver has a separate physically impaired wing with more than 100 wonderful children. But most of these children are educationally challenged and their scores counted towards the overall school grade for the first time this year. If they don't perform well then the entire grade drops regardless of the actual school score."

    "Definitely a mixed bag. Some of the best teachers ever, although currently losing some of them. Great parental community--a school with real heart. Hope the math magnet works for them and that they turn around the downward trend because it has fantastic potential. Currently (like all public schools) moving away from great teaching and towards endless FCAT prep. This is a problem. If you've got great teachers, you've got to let them do what they do best. Too soon to say on the principal leadership. I hope it's fabulous because I have a huge soft spot for Lake Silver."
