Why Silas

Silas graduates

Silas High School staff, students and families create a school environment where all students have the opportunity to exhibit high standards of achievement and critical thinking skills, social responsibility and community contributions. Renovated most recently in 2017, Silas provides students with state-of-the-art classrooms and science labs, library, business education classes, an expanded athletic complex, a Career Center, and guidance and administrative offices. Silas is one of very few high schools in the country with a fully equipped glass blowing hot shop. The JROTC program is also recognized as one of the most awarded in the area. Silas won the School of Distinction Award seven years in a row, something that no other high school in Washington has accomplished. This honor is based on outstanding improvements in graduation rates. Now that graduation rates are where they should be, the focus is on equity — specifically on closing the opportunity gap with students of color and students with disabilities in accelerated classes and test scores.

Silas High School building

Dr. Dolores Silas High School, formerly named Wilson High School, was built in 1958. In September 2006, a new addition was built which contains state-of-the-art classrooms and science labs, the library, our business education classes, an expanded Associated Student Body complex, the Career Center, and Guidance and administrative offices. Phase two of the construction was completed in the fall of 2017. The gymnasium and pool were also remodeled. New construction is ongoing for the performing arts and 400/500 wing. A new building houses Culinary Arts, the Autism program, and the Math department.  Silas is one of very few high schools in the country with a fully equipped glass blowing hot shop.
