Silver Lake Elementary, home of the Bulldogs, is located in Federal Way’s Alderbrook neighborhood and serves scholars in grades K-5. At Silver Lake we believe in building a strong community by ensuring that ALL are welcome and by instilling following the Positive Behavior Intervention System. Every day we come to school to learn. We do that by: Showing Respect, Making Good Decisions, and Solving Problems. Silver Lake takes pride in providing exciting and rigorous core instruction through Standard Based Learning. We place our priority on growing our scholars academically and socially.
