Note from a Neighbor

"We can't say enough about Salem School. My son was apprehensive about moving to a new school and hadn't had the best experience previously. We quickly realized that this experience was going to be much different. The caring administration and staff, the welcoming families and students - even the band program was great. It's like a family - and we are so glad we made the decision to send or kids to school here." - The Nelson Family
