Salem High School Reviews
I did not go to an ordinary high school. I went to PCEP (Plymouth Canton Educational Park), where there are not one, but three high schools on one campus. These schools were Salem, Plymouth, and Canton high school. What was unique about this campus was that even though I was a Salem student, I had classes in all three schools. If your next class was in another school, you would have 10 minutes to walk on what is called "The Path" to get to your next class. Being enrolled at PCEP was interesting. When the Friday night lights came along, everyone from students all the way to 30-year alumni came to the game. Especially when one school on campus played another school on campus. For instance, the Canton vs Plymouth game is usually the most attended game of the year for all three schools. PCEP offers a widely ranged variety of classes for whatever it is you want to get into. Everything from Engineering to Culinary. Overall, my experience at Salem High School was very good. Go Rocks!
I have been a Plymouth Canton District Student for my entire schooling career, and I graduated from Salem High School in 2018. This high school provided me with sufficient preparation for college especially with their large variety of Honors and Advanced Placement courses. Furthermore, they have over 100 clubs and sports for students to participate in which allows every student to fit in and find a strong group of friends. Moreover, the school itself is very diverse, and has many organizations specific to a students beliefs, religion or interests. Each teacher was very helpful and knowledgable when it came to their course and other information such as SAT prep and college applications. Most importantly, the school taught their students how to balance rigorous classes with sports and other activities making it a place where students could explore all of their interests. I loved Salem High School and recommend that students attend this school.
Overall I really like my school; there is a good diversity and so many people to meet. Since Salem High School is also connected to two other schools, Canton, and Plymouth High School, the faculty and help are extended. There is always more than enough help available that my school, which is a huge benefit. One other thing I really like is that there extracurriculars for everyone. Something I would change if I could is to make school start times later. Most of the students are half asleep most of the day and even sleep in classes. Another annoying thing about the school is that we have to walk outside for each hour, between schools, through every weather except lightning. Other then that, my school is pretty decent, and I have enjoyed my time in high school.
