Ernest Bowen Desilva Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

August 18, 2009 Submitted by a parent
This public school is better than the private schools in Hilo. It is a beautiful place, surrounded by gardens. There is still an appreciation for authentic understanding of knowledge and that beats the drill and kill trap of the high stakes testing we are confronted with in public schools. There is a gentle atmosphere of respect and pride that I feel my daughter will benefit from. I wish all the schools here were like EB deSilva-

EB de Silva is a great school to send your children to. It is in a nice quiet neighborhood and the staff is great. I was a student at De Silva many years ago and now I have a 6th grader there. Through out the years the school has remained one of the best on the island. I wouldn't think of sending my child anywhere else.

Unfortunately EB deSilva is increasingly succumbing to the pressures of NCLB and the pressures to exceed standardized test scores. (Because it is in a relatively affluent area, with a high percentage of supportive parents, deSilva's scores continue to be one of the highest in the State.) The pressure to excel on the tests are taking over the school's integrity and the well-being of the students overall. The rift between doing what is best for the child versus what is best for good test scores has resulted in an almost-sweeping loss of deSilva's best teachers. Many parents want change but change will not come easily with our current system and teachers who resist. On a positive note, thanks to a wonderful PCNC, the arts and sciences have been reintroduced at deSilva as part of an after school 'EdVenture' program. It's a small (but important) step to a big problem.
