There are teachers here who truely care about their students and making sure they are learning and then there are teachers who are here because of tenure. The teachers who love their job stick out and they make their classes interesting and easy to learn in the enviroment they create.

This school, like so many, will reward and educate those who put in the required effort. If one does not attend class or is consistently late than they will run into difficulty. Every year students from Salem end up everywhere from the Ivy League to the military to prison. It is what you make of it.

Salem HIgh is a fairly good school for motivated students who are willing to challenge themselves in honors and A.P. classes. It is not a good place for kids who need to be pushed. There are some excellent teachers but you will find a few who are truly terrible. Socially, most kids seem to be happy. ...  Read more

This school is like any other highschool, you need to learn how to take advantage of what it has. You learn to become a more ambitious student as well as develop your social skills.

This is probably the worst school on the North Shore, as proven by it's rating. The entire faculty, including the deans, seems to be made up of the most incompetent people the city could find. The teachers offer little help to students struggling with grades, the most they can offer a student is one ...  Read more

I am unsatisfied with the communication skills of the teachers and house advisor. For example, I did not receive one of the report cards in the mail, and I was met with indifference and disbelief that such a thing could happen ( my daughter is on the honour role, so there was no lifting it out of the ...  Read more
