Salem High School Reviews

Although the school district was great, Salem High School was the worst out of the only three high schools in Rockdale County. It was academically poor and culturally poor. Most teachers did not know how to teach and others could barely be considered as teachers. For the teachers that did actually do their job, they were overshadowed by the rest of the bad teachers. This often led to many of the good teachers quitting because they could not handle their students, nor did they receive the appreciation they deserved.

I love Salem High School! It's a great school and as time goes on you develop great friendships with students, teachers, and administration. It's almost like my second home. If you have a problem, it won't go unnoticed. The principal sees the best in all her students and believes we will achieve and do great things not just in school but in life. Just finishing my junior year at Salem was amazing. Been there since freshman year and it just gets better and better. One thing I would change would be the food. Sometimes the pizzas are way too greasy or the chicken is dry. One more thing I would want to change but can't would be the occasional student rivalry. I just don't think fighting in school is needed. Overall I think Salem is a wonderful school! Definitely like a second family!
My experience at Salem High School has been the best thing that has happened to me. The teachers are Salem are very understanding, care for their students and grades, excited to know each of their students, always on the look out for their students safety. But all this could not be accomplished without the wonderful and amazing principle Ms. Tonya Bloodworth. She is the best principal, coworker, mother and mentor for all students at Salem. She makes sure that she makes decisions that are going to benefit the student body. Thank you guys so much for all the effort you put into our lives and education. The world would not be a better place. But one thing I would like to be changed at Salem should be at least one senior field trip so we can have our time with our friends, because so far the seniors haven’t done anything. But other than that Salem High School is an amazing school for education, friends, mentors, and more.
