As a student at Salisbury High School, I have enjoyed various new experiences and met the best people. I am an extremely involved student being part of the Field Hockey team and in over 5 clubs. Including a club that I created and start my sophomore year of high school. Salisbury High School has been great so far and I can't wait for the rest of my junior year!

The teachers are excellent and are very dedicated to the students. They show concern for all aspects of the students lives to ensure they are in the best mind set to learn. The faculty as a whole, makes the students feel at ease and comfortable going to them with any questions or concerns we may have. The athletic department has a great coaching staff. Again, they are concerned about teaching students to be the best athletes they can be, and not always concerned about wins/losses.
Salisbury High School provides a safe, small-community atmosphere with state-of-the-art facilities. This high school has a contract with Apple, as each student receives a MacBook Air for the entire year for their own use.
