We accept students 10th through 12th grades, throughout the school year. Students who are 18 years old and have completed 4 years of high school need to finish at Adult Ed. (530) 477-1225. Our students come from a variety of circumstances and we accommodate most everyone. We will meet to develop a personalized plan, with the option to graduate from Silver Springs and a possibility of early graduation. Or to return to Nevada Union or Bear River, after credit recovery. NU and BR returning seniors must start at the beginning of the school year.
We have an atmosphere that encourages and supports school success. Because we are a small school, the students generally feel well connected, and they feel successful. Some for the first time in a long time.
Our teachers do not assign homework, but a student who is working in class is encouraged to do more assignments at home to catch up on credits. Teachers are supportive of that effort.
We graduate students with 200 credits (20 less than our other high schools) when all requirements are met, which helps with the overall credit deficit many of students come to us with.
Student success is based on good attendance and working hard in class - That's it!
Students have every opportunity to succeed at Silver Springs!
Sometimes emotional issues can get in the way of school success. The more we understand what is going on with our students the more we can help them. We have; clubs, groups, special events, therapy, access to clinics, homeless services, etc. All offered to assist with academic, social, emotional and even physical needs. Please let us know how we can best support your student and family to accomplish the all important goal of graduation.
For an appointment to meet and/or a phone consultation; to enroll, check on progress toward graduation or for emotional concerns.
