Overall a great school. My only negative comment is the lack of diversity. I feel like it's important for our children to experience diversity. Otherwise, I feel like this school is a wonderful place with staff who generally care for their students.

The teachers are incredible. The love the have for the children is very apparent every day. The school is older and could use some modern touches. We live outside the district and request a voucher just to attend this school. The Girls on the Run program is run by loving wonderful women who are a true blessing to the young girls.
This is a fantastic school. The staff and teachers are wondering and so caring about the students. My child really enjoys it there and has learned so much. I look forward to many years at West Salem with my kids.
