Welcome to Salem City School District
Our Mission

The Salem City School District will be a high-performance district as demonstrated by the Salem City students who:  Exceed state standards in literacy and computation, develop intrinsic motivation to pursue education in and outside of the classroom setting, master the skills necessary to retrieve and analyze information, and become lifelong learners.

District Goals

We are “Committed to Excellence”, and we hope to make this site a primary source for timely information for all users, and a main gateway for improved communication between parents, teachers, students and our community.
