Salem High School is a wonderful place to attend high school. Salem offers many clubs students can get involved in. The International Baccalaureate program is also provided. Dual enrollment with Virginia Western is also a major plus (it is free as of 2013-). This is my fourth year attending Salem High School and it has been a wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend this school. The teachers & staff are super friendly. Salem's only faulty is having to be apart of the SOL system. This is Virginia's downfall to the education system. Too much time is wasted on preparing and reviewing for single test. More time could be spend on teaching children if the SOL didn't ruin Salem's excellency. Salem also has great sports programs. The football field is absolutely amazing. It's better than some college stadiums. Salem High School is a bit dated but in the next upcoming years, it is expected that renovations will be made. Overall, Salem is a great place to attend high school and I recommend you to stop by and visit if you are further interested.

an amazing school system! salem high school leads many children to go on to good colleges and prepares them for life out of high school. salem is one of the highest rated high schools in the state of virginia, they have great academics and an amazing athletic program. the town of salem is one of the best run cities i have ever seen and the atmosphere and the people in the area are great. my family has moved many times and the last move we had we ended up in salem, needless to say my husband quit his other job to find one where he could stay in salem. the school system is great, the prepared my child for college, and my child was awarded with the IB diploma and played three sports while they attended the high school. Excellent school system!
