School has been wonderful for my kids. Great education, nurturing teachers and administration. Excellent foundation to get kids excited about school.

This school is terrible. There is very l ittle diversity and the student sense of entitlement is rampant. The staff is not cohesive or unified and the principal is a wet noodle who has absolutelyno concept on how to manage his school.

My family is very happy with South Salem. It is a warm, nurturing envrionment.
