Salem Public Schools Reviews
SHS has so many opportunities for people with broad ranging interested and abilities. They have many AP offerings! I was not only able to participate in ALL my areas of interest but was able to take advantage of many unique leadership opportunities. It is a very inclusive environment so even if someone isn't very good at something - they are still included. Those people often grow enough to become very good at that thing. It doesn't produce the #1 ranking in sports or music competitions [well, not usually] but it does produce very well rounded students who work hard, work together, and are happy at what they are doing!
Salem High offers a wide variety high quality course offerings. In addition to rigorous academics, students can explore the arts through painting sculpture, graphic design, dark room and digital photography, digital film and animation. they can take vocational courses such as medical assisting, culinary, automotive, carpentry, electrical and early child development. They have an award winning music and drama department where all students are encouraged to explore and develop their creative and musical expression.
Salem Public Schools has a lot of help for students who are struggling, makes them feel like they fit in. The thing that I do not like about Salem Public Schools is that they like to cancel school in the same day and they do not cake home right away when it is bad temperature outside. Another thing that I do not like about Salem Public Schools is that they do not have transportation for every student, yes I understand that some kids live close to their school but sometimes if it's snowing or raining it can be hard and dangerous for the kids to walk.
