Silver Oaks Cooperative School

Silver Oaks Cooperative School

At Silver Oaks Cooperative School we are committed to spirited learning, growth, development and fun.  We empower our students to ask insightful questions, explore their world, and learn to become independent thinkers and doers.  We invite parents into the classroom, where they play a critical role in their child’s education. Come learn more about the school and discover an education built differently!

Dreamed up over play dates and late night texts, Silver Oaks Cooperative School is the creation of two moms with a deep background in education and passion for learning. Alicia and Annette collectively have 24 years of experience in public elementary education.  Our parenting and educational experiences have cemented our desire for a new type of elementary school.  We can’t find an affordable, community-driven, child-centered school in our area, so we’re building it.
