History

Silver City was founded in 1970 and opened in 1971.  It was the first open-concept school (there are large open spaces with semi-permanent partitions thus the school can be adapted to changing enrollments and educational requirements) to be build in Kansas City, Kansas.  There is a large library, soundproof rooms and work-spaces for teachers.  Silver City had an addition in 2009 doubling the space of the school.
