North Salem Middle School is a wonderful place! All the teachers are helpful & the other students are super collaborative. Everyone is super-friendly & supportive. It is a small school with a small student to teacher ratio. You can play any sports or join any clubs you'd like to join. The school has lots of resources. The teachers will help any student with any subject they need. Everyone is super friendly!

I am a student at North Salem High School. Some teachers are very good at their jobs, especially in the middle school. They’re kind and friendly, they’re people students can talk to and we continue to visit them in their classrooms until we graduate. As work gets more rigorous in high school, some teachers seem to be less and less bearable. Overall the quality of the education is excellent and I feel that it is partially due to fact that North Salem is a small school. There is so little bullying, no “popular” kids, no football kids (because there’s no team), no one is unknown.
The size of North Salem is one of its best (and worst) characteristics. I love the tight-knit and supportive atmosphere of such a small school, and I value the connections the students are able to make with their teachers and peers.
NS' tiny size, however, means that students lack opportunities that other nearby high schools have. For example, we don't offer many electives or clubs, and it is difficult to receive support or funding if we are looking to start new ones.
