I began attending school at Salado freshman year. It was kind of scary, but pretty exciting. I played volleyball and basketball so before the year had begun, I had already met some friends and had people around during the school day to help me get familiar with everything. That's how I met my best friend! Throughout high school, we've enjoyed laughing and watching games together, cheering on our siblings at sports games, inside jokes, complaining about homework, spending time together while also learning, and enjoying the adventure of growing up.
At Salado, I appreciate that the faculty know and care for the students and help encourage us to achieve goals in our academics, sports, and personal development.
I would like to see more teachers who are unbiased towards their "favorites" and treat everyone with the same respect, however, for the most part, the overall experience is one full of memories, lessons learned, and great times that students will remember long after they graduate.

I like the small school district and most of the teachers have been wonderful. The administration recently changed and we have hopes that rules will be enforced. The downside to a small school district is sometimes the community and parents are not receptive to change and growth. I feel like too much money and focus surrounds the boys athletics, especially the football program. The arts and music have state and area winning programs with excellent instructors, however not much funding it allotted to them or the space they need for growth.
Salado was a beautiful and inviting environment to learn and grow mentally, physically, and emotionally. The teachers were extremely supportive in helping me apply for colleges and choose a career pathway that I would be strongly suited for. I highly recommend any other students looking for a Lonestar school to attend Salado, coming into any grade.
