I see the quality of education at SHS! Based on the way the students write the word "Principle"i in the 2 most recent posts. There have been a lot of problems in the middle school which will filter into the high school. My son is zoned for this school and am so HAPPY he will not be going there, he was ...  Read more

I have to disagree with other comments about the principle being too strict, I think the principle is doing an AMAZING job keeping the school a safe place to learn and a great place to attend. I attended school when the old principle was at salem and I never talked to him once in the 2 years I was at ...  Read more

As long as your child knows the rules, they will flourish at this school. Lots ...  Read more

I have no complaints for my daughter's academics, the classes and teachers all seem to be very helpful. My problem is with the new and current principal. He steps out of boundaries sometimes, giving unneeded punishments and believing rumors. I do not approve of him ruling my daughter's school and education.

The principal at this school is on a power trip. He is giving punishments that by far out weigh the action. Giving the students or their parents any opportunity to find out the reason for the actions. Many parents have had the same issue with him since he became principal. Threats of long term suspensions ...  Read more

This school has served both my children well on completely opposite ends of the education spectrum for 7 years. My daughter attended as part of the Visual Arts Academy Program, and my son attends in special services and inclusion classes. Each child has had challenges, but various teachers and principals ...  Read more

Salem High schools offers many programs as well as providing a culturally diverse experience. In Virginia Beach this school is the Arts Academy. We had (as parents) an overall positive experience here. The principal, and supporting staff truly want to see the kids succeed, and any high school truly is ...  Read more
