Sadly my son and I had to move, causing me to have to put him into Salem. Pre-k was a joke! He'd gone from learning state names, math, phonics, presidents to homework assignments asking him to match the dog to the puppy, and the cat to the kitten. Toward the end of the school year, the teacher was surprised that my son could read! She teased him in front of the class saying he couldn't read. She made him do so in front of the class and to her surprise, he read the entire book to the class. What had the children been learning all year if it was a shock that he could read!? And what if he couldn't, she would've embarrassed him! I had to do home schooling after sending him to school to learn absolutely nothing! Had I not have home schooled him, he wouldn't have continued to learn anything. There were 24 children in his class. Too many children for the teacher to give the attention they needed. The teacher was burned out and overwhelmed, & it showed through her laziness. There was no drive or ambition. I could tell she was there for one thing and one thing only. A check.

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.
