Student success is the result of creating the positive culture. Most students landed at Silver Springs because of lack of success in a traditional academic setting. Many of the graduates have overcome not only academic challenges, but family, health, emotional, and social challenges as well.

Two young mothers not included in the Silver Springs graduation count successfully passed the GED and entered college last semester as well.

Many of the graduates give credit to the teachers for their support; and graduate Daniel Nagy put it quite simply when asked how he and his classmates were able to succeed.
