West Salem High School has great teachers and even better school spirit! Students are quick to get involved with school activities as well as extra-curricular. West Salem is great for families and is picturesque suburbia.
West Salem High School is a wonderful place. As a transfer student junior year, West Salem provided a place for me to further develop my education and begin to thrive. The pace many teacher's have created in their classroom allowed me to develop a voice in the classroom that carried into my personal life. I feel as though the environment of West Salem High School promoted my personal and educational development. I do not regret transferring to West Salem. I am so thankful that I became a part of West Salem because it provided an environment in which I could prosper as a young adult.
West Salem is an amazing school, and they gave me an opportunity to be a better person. I did not come from a good place and my life would not be the same without the West Salem Community. It has been an amazing experience.
