Salem High School Reviews
I feel that there could have been more options with clubs/associations, sports, and courses. I packed a lunch almost daily since the food quality wasn't the greatest. There have also been several threats which have disrupted the school time, as well as threatened our safety at PCEP. We have even had a teacher threaten to bring a gun to school. Ever since the Sandy Hook incident, all doors on campus are locked and can only be opened from the inside. This actually became problematic, because that would mean you'd have to possibly wait for someone to open the door, causing you to be late for class; being marked tardy is all too horrible for you attendance record, especially since they add up. I do wish there was a way to use the student IDs to get inside the building, to avoid this.
Salem high school is unique because it is a part of a three school campus, better known as PCEP. I have had amazing teachers and classes and there is someone for everyone here. All different types of people from all around. There is a large variety of clubs and activities so there is a place for everyone. I would like to see however, a change in some of the teachers who don’t care about their students and the work they assign them. I think some need to be retrained. I also think that Salem needs to bring more awareness to mental health issues and suicide.
You could be a senior at the park (PCEP) and still not know everyone. You can definitely find the friends for you as well as the electives you want to be specialized. The teachers and administration is great, they care and present full resources possible to you when needed. It gets tiring walking between each school but it really keeps things from being boring. Salem has the best breakfast out of the three schools at the park too. After school activities are a life saver and help you make so many friends. Im into rap music and my friend and I started a rapheads club and I'm the VP, its so fun. Im a kid who enjoys school especially at Salem.
