I'd vote for the state to take it over so that the children here had a chance.

The teaching staff don't appear to care anything about the children's education. They don't communicate with the parents until progress reports or report cards are getting ready to be sent home. The don't update grades frequently in the Infinite Campus portal. The school itself doesn't have basic necessities like paper towels and the bathroom stalls are missing doors! They don't have a technology teacher yet they are giving out grades. The principal isn't involved in getting this school turned around at all. They lose the students grades in the system and punish the children by giving them failing grades. If you are think about sending your child here DON'T!

Please Just close this school down it worth more close than open.. We as parents send our kids to school to get an education. How at this school when the teachers doesn't care. The principals are full of BS. The secretary sits on the phone and talk about every one with the police officer. Is this what we want teacher our kids.

Salem was the middle school in my area,therefore it wasn't a school of choice more like force,I've heard several nightmares about this school and my experience was a nightmare as well,This was my daughter first year of middle school therefore I was under the impression I had to register her,Little did I know she was already registered,however the lady who was in charge of registration was very very did I say very unprofessional. I arrived @ 12:30 there was a sign on the door saying out to lunch from 12-1 so I waited ,the door finally opened at 1:08p.m.I sat there filled out my paperwork was being assisted by someone's teenage son, after finishing up my package the guy took my paperwork to the person in charge she told him to tell me I had to come back another day because registration ended at 1 o'clock,when I asked the guy to ask her to meet with me she took her precious time to come out ,she took at least 15 mins to come speak with me ,she insisted I was too late to register,she also stated I was missing documents to make a long story short if she was more knowledgeable pertaining to her job she could've checked the computer and saw where my daughter elementary school had forwarded all her information and my child was already registered.Majority of the staff I've come in contact with is a very poor asset to Salem Middle School,and if I could give them a 0 rating that's exactly what I would give them.

I totally agree with all the reviews. I have a child currently in the 7th grade. I cannot WAIT for the school year to be over.. so I can get out of there. Most of the teachers are there just to get a pay check. They do not send home homework and when they do it's something the child has never done in class. They sit and listen to children been picked on daily and call all sort of names and then say it's not bulling. They watch children fighting and do nothing, it's like their there but not. The school system does care about our children, they are setting them to to fail. It's sad because it our taxes that we pay is paying them so we are basically paying the to do this to our children. I really think they need to do some house cleaning and the cleaning needs to start with the directors office. IT'S REALLY SAD.
