They need to find some teachers that aren't power hungry or attention seekers that think they are the most popular. But other than that, the floors are cleaner than the dumpsters outside, except for the bathrooms, who knows what's in the bathrooms each day. There's always a little surprise behind those doors. Also the security camera's work which is cool. Also don't through broccoli away and keep it in the trash over night! That happened at our school and it was worse than entering the bathrooms. It's a fun school though. The field trips are fun the homework is insane and ya. You should make the school in a bigger place toooo.

This is school depends on your friends group. A lot of the kids are mean and judgmental but it is what you make of it. The teachers are very hit or miss some of them you can have a great connection to while others are just here because it's their job. Detentions are handed out for just about everything which means it's not a lot of fun. The school lunch looks, smells, and tastes like it came out of a garbage can. The sports are average because there are some kids that are there because they want to be and there are also some that are there because they were forced to be. Overall it is a very small school but at least the floors are clean, the bathrooms however are a mess and the middle school hallway is a nightmare to get through.
Salem Academy has well prepared and educated me for college and life-skills. Playing sports here has connected me to a great support system and some of my favorite friends. Salem Academy has a comfortable environment and great well-educated teachers. Alumni reflect on how it has prepared them and how successful they have become from skills learned at Salem Academy
