Wow, just when you think the scores are getting better they plummet. Three years ago the math scores were 30 points higher than they are today. What is going on with the testing at SHS? They hire consultants to make the teachers teach better, and the scores fall? Finally have some stability at administration so it must be on the governing board. Vote them off. Hidden agendas are killing the school.

SHS is a 2. The poor rating stems from problems starting at the top. Micromanagement by the board has seen the school employ 13+ different superintendents over the past 25 years with the longest in the past fifteen having a 4.5 yr tenure. The only core faculty stability the HS has had was their math department which has carried the school through many years of poor AIMS scores and FAR BELOW AVERAGE graduation rate (<65%). Again, in 2010, SHS had the highest scores in LaPaz Co (according to their website www.salomehs.org) but to the schools poor management the complete math department (2 teachers) resigned and moved on to other schools. They continue their rotating English teacher position with the hiring of the 7th teacher in 7 years. If you plan to move to the Salome area it would be advised to look at the other area high schools for your children

Although I am a new parent to Salome High School, so far I have had a great experience. The staff are eager to help with any areas of your students education. I have had all phone calls and emails returned. So, far my experience at this High School is a lot better then the reviews listed below so I had to add mine on here.

Although Salome H.S. had problems in the past, they have a completely new administration and have replaced the teachers who weren't doing their jobs. ALL the teachers are certified now. Teachers are accountable for standards, and those not meeting them are released. The school is not behind in entering grades, which are entered within two days of the end of the grading period. Money management and audit problems were with the previous administration and have been corrected. The superintendent is working very hard to improve the school and demands excellence from his teachers. The biggest challenge the school faces is student and parent apathy. The school is changing for the better, and I'm glad to be a part of it.

Quality of academic programs: Starts with administration which has had serious problems in establishing policy and standards for teachers to work to. High turnover and lack of consistant curiculim and poor leadership have made our experience at Salome (4children through the system) most negitive. Teachers have bad attitiudes (stems from administration) too many non certified teachers, resource officer regularly monopolizes many students time, keeping them from necessary class time. Student grades and statistics not entered in data base (years behind) making transfering students unable to enroll in new school for weeks. Inconsistent enforcement of curiculim standards and lack of accountability for teachers making the teachers who do care and who want to do the right thing frustrated and forces them to go elsewhere. History of audit problems and money management takes away the ability for programs and communication necessary for a successful educational program. This school needs help!
