“The future of our economy, the strength of our democracy, and perhaps even the health of the planet’s ecosystems depend on educating future generations in ways very different from how many of us were schooled.”
– Tony Wagner, Co-Director of the Change Leadership Group at the Harvard Graduate School of Education in 2007

The reason Silver Oak starts at 8:45am!

The American Medical Association, the CDC, and the American Academy of Pediatrics have all called for middle schools and high schools to start at 8:30 am or later as an urgent health issue for adolescents.
The National Conference on Adolescent Sleep, Health, and School Start Times will be held April 27-28th, 2017 at the JW Marriott in Washington D.C. to explain this issue to all interested school stakeholders from around the country. Education policy makers, school board members, superintendents, and other school leaders and stakeholders are coming from around the country to attend this important educational event.
