    My children went to this school from kindergarten to 6th grade. This school has some of the best teachers and staff that you will find anywhere. Excellent place to raise a family.

    I was a new parent to this district last year and I never felt so unwelcome to a school district in all of my child's scholastic career. They have a note posted on the door that you are welcome just please check in but when you try to do that the door is really not open for you to walk through.I thought to myself 'maybe it's just you ' but after speaking with other new parent I realized I was not alone! It kind of makes me wonder what are you hiding? Salem Elementary you need to wake up and let your parents in they could be vital for a small district with a limited budget.
