I loved my high school experience in Saline. The building itself is beautiful with lots of natural lighting, which was really important to me since I suffer from seasonal depression. The music program is amazing and I greatly enjoyed participating in the marching band and wind ensemble. The academics are wonderful! There were at least 10 students in my graduating class that graduated with a 3.99 or 4.0 GPA. Our football team was super awesome too - it made being in marching band even more fun! I was so happy the year that we made it to the state finals - I was able to march on Ford Field. I also got to travel to Disney World with the marching band and perform in a parade there.

Academic standards are high. Social aspect was unbearably terrible. The general population was segregated into two categories; the kids of parents who were extremely wealthy, and the farmer kids. Being a transplant and a new student my freshman year, it was impossible to make friends. Kids are mean in general, but this school was downright tragic.
It is a very good school. People who haven't been anywhere else but Saline schools down't know any better so they find things to complain about. Warranted some of those things are very valid complaints, but people who graduate from Saline have a leg up in in college already whether it be because of their grades or because of having the reputation of Saline High School behind them automatically implies that they will succeed. Most do. We are raised in Saline, with the expectations and standards pushing everyone to accomplish as much as we can and shame ourselves when we could have done better. While this creates lots of extra stress starting in middle school, it cannot be denied that statistically, Saline sets you up for success.
