This is hands-down the best school in Salem. Overall, I'd say it has a private school feel, and its small size means kids can feel comfortable quickly. Academics are above average in terms of rigor, and teachers are responsive for the most part. Yes, there is a relatively high degree of discipline and a lot of homework, but I feel this is better than the alternatives prevalent at other schools. Extracurriculars are markedly improving, with the list of options growing every year. Facilities are relatively poor, but also improving with the addition of more space (they also make use of city facilities and parks). As noted in other reviews, the arts are relatively weak, but again getting better. My kids have attended 4 other schools in the district, and Salem Academy stands out.

Well..Im not going to even give this forsaken school any stars. I've been at this school for way too long, andit's taking its toll. I have come to find that over the years...This school has sucked.....But..I have to admit it's gotten better. They have more options for athletics. Im a returning soccer, basketball,softball, and now cross country member. Salem academy is coplex to descrice exactly. It...It works its students a little too hard, also it 'babys' the students too much. As a student..I feel it should offer more independance. I personaly do not like the manditory service learning....And i do not like the fact that it has limited to offer in the classes. I would like to take shop classes..Like wood shop or mechanics. I would like to be exposed to other languages and have the opourtunity to study another language other than spanish. Ive taken spanish for the past six years.

This school is terrible. There is no sports program, the building is falling down, the teachers are mean and impatient, They over use discipline in unneccesary situations. Last there is absolutely no school community.

The school is solid academically, much better than the local middle school. Problems are inadequate facilities, excessive use of discipline and not much to offer in the arts.

very few extra curricular activities. Some student have to choose between art and gym. No home ec., or shop classes offered. Very few school resources. No gym or art room.
