    Overall Experience: Silver Bluff is a unique experience. There is always a sense of accomplishment and pride among the students and staff, and many staff members are Silver Bluff High School alumni who come back because of the deep love that they develop for the school. We are immensely proud of our successful sports teams, clubs, and marching band. Even though Silver Bluff is not the richest school, the atmosphere is always that of students who are ready to learn and are willing to strive to make the most of their high school experience.

    Extracurriculars: I am a proud member of Silver Bluff High School and I love the school. They have a lot of extracurricular opportunities at the school like Sports, Drama Club, Class Officers, Student Council, Key Club, Academic Team, Robotics, School Newspaper, Yearbook Staff, Drill Team, ROTC, Bible Club, National Beta Club, and National Technical Society. At the end of each year our principal asks us what other clubs do we want for the next school year and she adds it. The most popular club is the ROTC because a lot of people in my school get an interest in the army. The administration always helps with the clubs they sometimes joins in and enjoy the fun.

    Overall Experience: My school is great to me the only problem that we have is that we need a little bit more money to do other activities like field trips.
