• Welcome!

    My name is Denise Galvez, and I am a Registered Nurse and lifelong resident of this beautiful city we call home. I am a two-time UTEP graduate where I received my Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Master of Science in Nursing Education. I understand you have an array of choices in your child’s education. I want to personally thank you for choosing to explore the best decision for you and your family.  Silva Health Magnet has been my home for the last 20 years and it is a campus like no other in El Paso. Silva’s Health Science Technology (HST) courses are taught by Licensed Health Care professionals who have previously been employed in a healthcare setting. In these 20 years, I have collaborated and worked with the most intellectual, inquisitive, and compassionate students who are now practicing Physicians, Nurses, Physical Therapists, Dentists, Attorneys, Teachers, and an array of other professions.  

    Silva provides an academically rigorous curriculum integrated with current evidence-based healthcare knowledge and skills. Our students leave Silva with a knowledge base that has prepared them for today’s diverse healthcare system. Silva graduates learn to function as interdisciplinary team members while utilizing critical thinking skills. Silva students are exposed to evidence-based practices that ensure quality and safety in patients. Service-learning opportunities are provided for students to understand the true meaning of healthcare: serving the needs of patients in our community. I am eager to share the amazing opportunities Silva Health Magnet has to offer. As a healthcare professional, educator, and parent I will be here to serve you and your family every step of the way as you transition to high school. I want to personally invite you to join one of our informational sessions to learn more about our prestigious High School. Please email me if you would like additional information. Our application window is currently open through August 2021 and is based on space availability. I can’t wait to see your future healthcare provider join us!

    Warm regards,
    Denise Galvez, MSN, RN
