Christina Tillery and Susan Metzler serve as our Advanced Learning Plan Coordinators.
Silver Creek aims to challenge students in the academic preparation. In doing so we meet and exceed the needs of many GT students by offering 22 Advanced Placement classes and honors courses at the 9th and 10th grade levels.
Silver Creek is also home to the Universal High School Program which works primarily with GT students at the high school level who are looking for additional academic and social emotional support. More information can be found at the Universal High School Website.
