My child has been at Salem for 2 years now. Last year I was very impressed with the school, but this year has not been impressive at all. I feel Salem has failed my child this year in the academic area. The class sizes are larger than my public school, some of the staff I feel is there just for a check. I feel Salem has accepted any and everybody this school year just so they could increase their numbers as a school. I would not recommend this school for any child who is under the age of 6. The school also doesn't offer any extra curricular activities for any child PK-4 grade.

My son in going into his 3rd year at Salem. I tried to compare Salem to my public school district's elementary school but as far as I am concerned there is no comparison. Even if I was willing to remove the religious foundation from his education, the academics are accelerated at Salem and the feeling of community is unique to the building. The educators get to know your child and their learning abilities and styles. This school is a best kept secret in North County Elementary Education.

My son and daughter are attending their first year at Salem Lutheran and we are very impressed so far. The school is very Bible and Christ centered which is very important to us. They have a new principal this year who is committed to listening to parents and raising the already high standards of the school. I would recommend this school to parents searching for a good Christian school with good academics and extra-curricular activities (band, sports, etc)

My son has attended Salem since Pre-K and I like the school and the curriculum. Most of all I like several members of the staff. I wish they would offer more extra-curricular activities (sports) after-school. This school has taught my son very valuable morals and values that can be carried throughout his life. I wish the staff was a little more diversified.

The School is Bible oriented and a good moral start for children of today. Academically the school has very high standards and the school helps the students to acheive these standards.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
