Salisbury Senior High School Reviews

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.

Overall, my experience was good. Salisbury is a great school because of the opportunities it can give its students. They are growing in diversity, and are also growing in offering more AP, Honors, and a wide range of Electives each year. It is a very safe school, with a School Resource Officer present during the day. Because it is a small school (about 150 per class), it is easy to join clubs and athletics, which is a great way to make friends with different interests. The teachers also are very helpful and any time you need assistance, you can ask them for help and you can see them during study hall. Overall, great teachers, supportive community, and a great school.
I love how close and supportive the community and school is. Everyone is salisbury is always looking for opportunities to reach out and make the township a better place. Because we are so small, it is easy to get involved with sport and actives. Also, the sports teams allow for bonding and promote teamwork and hard work.
