I have one son in 3rd grade in one in K5. You could tell that both teachers loved their kids (and my sons) and went the extra mile to get the best out of them. They were fantastic. There are rules at this school (dress code, behavior, etc) that are not hard to follow when you learn them and have done a lot to teach my kids about discipline and respect. This has been a very beneficial part of their education. SBCS is also a STEM school, focussing on science, technology, engineering and math - my kids have LOVED the special events and projects STEM has taught them. I HIGHLY recommend!

I would recommend Salem Baptist Christian School to anyone seeking a great family school. It has something to offer everyone! During our six years at SBCS, I ve had one child to graduate and one currently in high school. I m very pleased with the academically engaging environment, the experienced teachers and the innovative administration. Parents, grandparents, staff and faculty all get involved and work together to develop a God-centered atmosphere. My graduate, in his 2nd year of college, was well prepared academically and socially for the university he is attending. I m glad we made the choice to send our children to SBCS!

Most of the teachers were good... Dress code not enforced like it should have been... They cared more about what type of shoes you were wearing than modesty the students say there christians but 93% of them act nothing like christ. We were taught from the bible but it seemed to me that it took second place the education was just average... Easy but you could choose to take a few hard classes some of the teachers are just great and others are bad, just depends on the classes you are taking

The academics are average. I definitely like the a day b day which helps in a great way with homework. The teachers are very kind and nurturing. The only thing I don't like about Salem Baptist is the rules. They are too stringent and appear to be more of a military school than a Christian School. Hair has to be cut very short for boys, no jewelry for boys no hoodies, but girls seem to wear whatever they want no matter how short or low. How can this be a good witness for our boys if they feel they're being discrimated against? Some of the kids think they're in authority always questioning the students. I like the school but have some real concerns about the above issues.

My daughter graduated from this high school last year and is currently in college. I was always pleased with the way in which she was mentored by the faculty at Salem. She was known to her teachers and administrators as an individual rather than just another student. She made relationships with these same people that will last her throughout her lifetime. It has been wonderful to see that her preparation for college was also thorough as she has been academically ready and her learning skills have been valuable for this first freshman year. In short, we were very satisfied with Salem's academic and extracurricular programs...and as parents we were encouraged to become a part of the school. It paid off with a successful first year in college...so we feel very blessed!

An awesome Christian school. We have been here for almost 6 years and have had nothing but the best teachers and adminstrators. The Discovery Learning program is also a very good thing about the school. It is for kids with learning differences and is highly effective. This is also a pretty small school, so everyone is on the same page. The classes, also, do not usually consist of more than 20 or so students, so the teacher has time to work with everyone. The school also has a variety of Athletic sports teams to offer. If you are looking for a great Christian education for your child in the Winston-Salem area, please look into Salem Baptist.

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.
