Salem School District Reviews

I been at Salem School since Kindergarten. The teachers are great but their main priority is to get you ready for the future, for your schoolwork grades equal money. They provide as many sports and clubs as they can for being a small school. They provided second breakfast and a snack cart but their lunch are not very good. In all, Salem Schools is great and getting better each year.

The environment is excellent overall. Bullying is prohibited, students feel safe in the school, and success is promoted by all staff members.
We have only been attending Salem for 1 year, but couldn't be happier with this school! I love the small town feel, friendly teachers and staff. Pleased with the education and extra curricular activities my children are a part of!
