I loved salmen, teachers are always involved with students and want the best for them. I enjoyed most classes because they were fun and excited, made you want to learn. The administration always has something planned for students. And it was a nice school with nice buildings and gyms. School lunch and breakfast was so good! Experiencing high school through Salmen was one of the best decisions I’ve made.

What I like about Salmen High School is that they are teachers who really care about students. Teachers and counselors who are really compassionate about the students well being and future. I would like to see more teachers be understanding to student's situation and how It may affect class behavior and work. Not every dispute needs to be taken to disciplinary actions, try a counseling program. Let the students talk to a counselor or a licensed psychologist.
I received the best educatuin I could have at Salmen. We are such a close family at Salmen. The teachers and administration doesn’t just teach us about academics but how to become closer and to care for others. The theater program is coming up from nothing. Our football team has amazing players. The test scores of AP and End of Course testing are supberb!
