Greensburg Salem School District Reviews

Very good school! The teachers are extremely involved with the school. The teachers really do make sure you understand the content and they build close friendships with the students. However, the school is very small if you don’t like smaller schools. It’s hard to find new friends because the school is so small

Everything about Greensburg Salem was pretty great in my opinion, but there wasn't much support for struggling students. The guidance counselors didn't know how to help with anything and the school therapist was ineffectual. If you didn't know exactly what you were doing for college and knew all about scholarships and advanced classes, you were screwed. I never took the SATs because nobody would explain to me what I was supposed to do. I never took AP classes or applied for scholarships because there is so little help for first generation college students and nobody wants to explain anything to you. There were also outdated policies regarding transgender students. I did like that the classes were only 18 weeks long and a couple hours long like college classes, and there was a pretty good selection of classes to take and good teachers. It's a great school if your parents know how to get into college, if you have no emotional difficulties and mental illnesses, and aren't transgender.
Greensburg Salem School has a diverse group of students and provides them with exposure to many relationships and situations the students will encounter throughout life. They encourage student involvement, leadership and autonomy in their education experience. The main aspect of improvement I would recommend is communication with parents and feel this can be achieved with updates to the school website and making it more user friendly.
