My experience at Sugar-Salem has been excellent. The teachers are kind and willing to help, and I have always felt comfortable coming to them with any questions I have. There are many extracurricular activities available to students and I have enjoyed participating in several, including cross country, track and field, and band. The students, teammates, coaches, and teachers are very supportive and overall, everyone contributed to the wonderful experience I had at this school.

I think that it’s a pretty good school. They are very good with college readiness and making sure that you have everything in. They are very involved with sports and those are kind of all they care about. They don’t bring much attention to the other clubs. The school lunch is not good so I hope that they would improve that sometime in the near future. Most of the teachers are really good and work with the students. They really try and help the people that fall behind in a few different subjects. It’s overall a pretty good school. However It could use some more improvements.
I have gone to Sugar Salem my whole life they have their pros and cons. Some cons are the some of the bus driver stink and tell to sit down or to stop being mean and some of the teachers in Kershaw and central stink, they do not care if you are not rich and popular they could care less what happened to you but once you hit Junior High and High school the teacher and principals are on your side. Some pros are that there are some really awesome teacher who want to help you learn the sport programs are awesome and they make it to state almost every year. There clubs are awesome and they try to get everyone involved with fundraisers and getting them in the actual club and help you to get to the point were you can compete and win.
