Welcome to Silverwood School  “Where Children are Challenged and Cherished” An Independent School for Children in Kindergarten through 6th Grades Silverwood School was founded in 1984, upon the belief that children are inherently curious, creative, fun-loving, and generous. The mission of the school is to foster these tendencies, and that is what happens every day at Silverwood. We believe that the elementary years are the most important time in a child’s life, the time when they can find a love of learning and build a strong foundation which will last the rest of their lives. An especially committed and loving group of teachers encourages interactive and interdisciplinary approaches to learning, paying special attention to the needs of each child. In the classroom, on the playground, or on a field trip, Silverwood students and teachers work together to understand our world and each other, to grow as individuals, and to contribute to the larger community beyond Silverwood. Silverwood School is a member of the Northwest Association of Independent Schools, and is approved by the state of Washington. Welcome to Silverwood School, where learning is an adventure that happens in the classroom, on our 18-acre wooded campus, and on various field trips and nature explorations. The academic program at Silverwood is interdisciplinary, hands-on, and dynamic. The learning environment is safe and respectful. Our smaller classroom sizes make authentic connection between student and teacher a normal daily occurrence. Mission Statement At Silverwood School, we challenge our students to become confident, compassionate citizens and skilled, life-long learners – literate, motivated, and intellectually adventurous. Beliefs We, the community of Silverwood, believe in the potential and curiosity of every child. Rooted in the relationships of teachers to students and the school to its families, Silverwood strives for a balance of structure and spontaneity, responsibility and opportunity, and discipline and discovery. With active family support for the child, faculty, and program, we prepare our students for their secondary education, to participate in and contribute to a richly diverse world, and to be stewards of our natural heritage, We encourage our students to passionately pursue their dreams.
