Greensburg Salem School District Reviews

My career as a student at Greensburg Salem High School (GSHS) consisted of four extremely humbling yet valuable years of learning. Relying on a minuscule tax base, this public school served as a constant reminder that effort creates ability rather than financial status. Although my experience was hindered due to our constrictive budgeting and lack of external opportunities, it only brought me to strive for success with fiery determination.
The primary focal point of positivity in GSHS lies within the faculty and teachers; since the student-to-teacher ratio is quite narrow, the school's academics and sense of familiarity allows for exponential growth in the student body. Had the teachers not provided such a communicative and intimate relationship with students, I would not be nearly as involved as I am today.
Overall, the determined spirit of Greensburg Salem High School carries the school's positive attributes. With a foundation of effort, GSHS is a great fit for young minds.

Greensburg Salem is a great school with intensive academics; I feel very confident that I will succeed in college! The teachers are always willing to give assistance to struggling students. Sadly, Greensburg Salem lacks the finances needed to improve its mundane facilities. Our sports teams and clubs are terribly average aswell.
The small school size lends it's hand to great teachers and many chances for one-on-one work. There are very few teachers in the districts that don't go above and beyond for their students. However, there does seem to be a disconnect between the student body/teachers and the administration and school board. I hear frustration from the teachers and students almost daily. The school board is (in some, but not all cases) recognisably politicized, and it is sometimes questionable who they are making their decisions for.
