It was a great school. Very diverse and full of oppurtunities for its students. I had good and bad teachers, but the good ones left a much larger impact than the bad ones. I have plently of happy memories from my four years in Plymouth-Canton. I just wish we didn't have to walk in the cold!
Review Salem High School
I loved many of the teachers I had, and the connection with the other two schools on the campus--definitely prepared me for college. Since we had to walk from building to building during any weather, it would have been great to see the school put a little more effort into clearing the path of snow and ice--I remember plenty of people slipping and falling on ice because it just wasn't a priority, while other less important things, like dress code were overemphasized.
Salem high school gives you a great experience of different diversity and culture and has many different options and opportunities to grow as a student and individual. Salem high school is one of the three schools at PCEP in canton Michigan, there are over 6,000 students that attend the park, so you have a lot of social interaction. Pcep offers tons of classes and programs to help you grow as a person and educated student, there are also a ton of after school activities such as sports, and clubs that help prepare the students for college and help get involved in the community to help out. I have so far enjoyed my experiences at Salem high school and can't wait to create more memories with playing high school soccer and joining clubs and also different classes to further my future career in nursing.
