Very happy with my children's first year in public school at Salem Elem. it was a family type atmosphere and far from overwhelming for them. The communication from the PTA leaves much to be desired but I wouldn't hold that against the teachers or faculty. Overall, a great school.

I have been happy with both the regular ed. and special ed. classes at Salem. I have found that both fit my children's academics needs. The staff here tries hard to make you feel at home.

My children went to Salem and now my grandchildren are attending. I have found the same positive, welcoming, and active school as I did 10+ years ago. My children learned and my grandchildren are learning so much from their dedicated teachers! Thank you again!

This school has an excellent special education department. They are dedicated and always willing to do what is best for the individual child. Although somewhat limited with resources, they give it their best effort.
