Welcome to Silver Hills Middle School


Chromebook Purchasing Program Information

Adams 12 has arranged an Employee and Student Chromebook Purchasing Program.  This program allows Adams 12 students (or families) and staff to purchase for personal use the same Samsung Chromebooks that the District utilizes for teaching, learning, and assessment, with the same discount that is received by the District.

These are the same devices that Silver Hills uses in many classrooms throughout the school on a daily basis.  Families that choose to purchase these devices for their students, will be allowed to have their students bring these devices to school for use in classroom instruction.

Ever wonder...
...Where the money comes from and goes?
...How the district makes decisions?
...What's the value of different assessments?
...How you can make a difference in state education policies?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should attend the Five Star Leadership Academy.  

UIP Parent Notice

Pursuant to the Education Accountability Act of 2009, all public schools in Colorado are required to develop unified improvement plans that outline targets for performance outcomes and strategies that the school will implement to achieve academic improvement.  Schools may be required to implement a performance plan, improvement plan, priority improvement plan, or turnaround plan. Based on results from the Colorado School Performance Framework, Silver Hills Middle School will be required to develop an Improvement Plan during the 2015-2016 school year. 

The school was assigned to this plan type based on performance not meeting state expectations in the areas of Academic Achievement, Academic Growth and Academic Growth Gaps. 

The district is required to submit Silver Hills Middle School's unified improvement plan to the Colorado Department of Education on or before April 15, 2016. 

Prior to adopting a plan, Silver Hills Middle School will hold a public meeting on Nov. 4th & Dec. 1st at 4:30pm in the library at Silver Hills Middle School.
