It’s a newly renovated school and the principal is the principal of the year in New Hampshire.
The high school is a comprehensive school with traditional and vocational learning opportunities. It offers unique and different classes.
It has many sports teams and we allow exchange students here. We have a functioning mechanic shop, a restaurant, a greenhouse for those who love plants and a construction contractor depot.

I just arrived at Salem High School during my senior year, and I can't say I'm not pleased. The academic challenge from the ability to choose multiple AP courses is something I am ecstatic to have, and the moderate size of the class body is something refreshing compared to the extremely large schools I have always attended. The prideful air at SHS is completely unreal; sports players always have their uniforms on (sometimes even when there isn't a game), the student engagement and love for the school can even rival some colleges. I've been a participant in the Pep Rally and even random celebratory events exclusive to SHS like "Mole Day" (whoever's heard of that?), and it shows me just how intensive the feelings of being comfortable and wanting to be a family are at this school. I've only been there for a couple of months now, but I'm already able to read what this entire school is about: unification.
With the new renovation, my high school experience has been greatly improved! The new building makes learning more enjoyable and the new resources make it easier! I love my teachers and feel very connected to the school.
