Salem Elementary School Reviews

By a Parent on

Academics seem pretty good here, but there are lots of good schools in this area.  I give an average rating because when it comes to being progressive, Salem Elementary is below average.  The school is very much about test scores and not so much about turning out well-rounded conscientious human beings.  A 5-star school accomplishes both. The school does not make an effort to be a leader.  They do not recycle.  They don't have a wellness committee, nor are they interested in starting one.  The teachers feed the kids junk food in the classroom very often, including using candy and Froot Loops for kindergarten math, and giving junk food as a reward for good behavior/work, even though this is explicitly against school board policy.  They do not offer any foreign language courses at all.
