Our School


It is the mission of Mary E. Silveira School to help each and every child realize his or her potential with opportunities that guide academic, social, emotional and physical development. Our commitment is to create an environment that engages students in academic work that helps them become responsible and productive citizens who are life long learners. We recognize and celebrate the diversity, strengths and inquisitive spirit of every child. We are prepared to work collaboratively with colleagues, students, and parents to achieve this shared educational purpose; instilling in children the belief that they can change the world....and have fun doing it.
