30 Parent Reviews for Middle School 255 Salk School Of Science

I am impressed with the academic excellence . However, the attention to total learning , after school and student collaboration is even better . For example my granddaugther and her team did an incredable job on a paper using a computer video and graphics .

We have been very happy with Salk. It's the kind of school where everyone can find their niche, find friends and somehow fit in. It's cool to be smart and it's not one big fashion show. Many families have a lot of money, but you would never know it, because the vibe is so laidback and down to earth. ...  Read more

One notable thing about Salk is how happy and well-adjusted the kids that attend it are! My son is very happy here. The h/w load is manageable (although, probably like other middle schools, there tends to be ALOT of work all at once right before the end of the marking periods), teachers seem very motivated. ...  Read more

Not all of us can pop into meetings during the business day on one day's notice. I did email the principal to ask. Again, a school where teachers speak with improper grammar, making the mistake just corrected in the lesson, math teachers routinely make arithmetic errors and children are screaming daily ...  Read more

Excellent school. We have nothing but positive things to report from our 7th grade daughters experience. I believe if the parent below (April 17) would have attended the meeting where the principal discussed her sabbatical she would have a better understanding of the timing of her leave. This was a ...  Read more

My school is small and filled with teachers who are happy to teach there. and are passionate about what they do. Homework is not just busy work. Assignments are thoughtful and creative. Salk offers many opportunities for parental involvement. Leadership is impressive.

My daughter is an 8th grader at Salk and it has been a wonderful experience for her. The curriculum is stimulating and the teachers thoroughly engage the students. This middle school well prepares students for high school.

I love SALK! I go to SALK and I just love it! I love the fact that the teachers are so nice and engaging. I love the lessons! For example, in 6th Grade, we had to write an Egyptian story, based off of research, and then turn it into a short play. We also do a ton of hands on Science experiments! The ...  Read more

I go to this school and it is like the best school ever! I knew from the beginning that is was going to be great. The teachers are so awesome and I have a great time in all of my classes while I learn so many new and interesting things just in the first month. It is such a lovely school and the people ...  Read more
