This school was alright, but a lot of the time the teachers seemed to not really care about their students or the learning experience. The facility is small and not as clean as I would have liked it to be. And the student services employees were extremely lackluster.
I have been at this school for four years. They have a great honors programs with teachers that generate a tight group that has grown together and that encourages each other's achievements. Thesee teachers also have the extra outside organizations that have competitions.
The only thing I would like to see more of is AP classes offered. The food is not the best, but when it was changed due to government regulations it did not change for the better. Sports are a big part of this small town high scool that most kids love and has a huge parent/family involvement. Crime/violence is not an everyday thing in fact quite rare. Overall I have enjoyed my 4 years at Salem.
