Read what parents are saying about Silver Beach Elementary School
This is the 2nd year that my two kids have attended Silver Beach. They love their teachers and are happy to go to school! Every day when I ask them how their day at school was, they say, "Great!" I think that is the true test. My 4th grader still loves school. Both of my kids are strong students, identified Highly Capable, and their teachers try to challenge them and keep them interested. I love that the school gives at least 2 recesses, as active kids need physical activities to keep their bodies and minds healthy. This is a great school! Thank you, Bellingham Public Schools!

I have had a child at this school for 10+ years. In the last few years, the quality of this school has gone down. I think a lot of that has to do with the leadership of the school. Since the current principal took over, the mood around school has always been a little negative. You see it in the staff, you see it in the morning help, you see it on the playground. The volunteers are rude to parents and students alike, as well as the front office staff is rude and very curt when it comes to parent interaction.

Great teachers and a wonderful principal. She has made a lot of changes for the good. I have had a child in the school from K to now 3rd grade. Wouldn't be at any other school.

The principal of this school is out of her league. I will agree the first year was good, but its been downhill ever since. I am soooooo glad my kids do not attend this poorly run and dilapidated old school anymore.

I agree the new principal is great. The teachers seem to really appreciate the support she provides. Reading and writing skills are very well taught - excellent. Math skills instruction is very good but is an area that could use some improvement. This does not mean math is bad here just weaker than other areas and not quite as focused. I have two kids who go here. Best view of the lake from the playground! Highest recommend.
