Superintendent's message

Dear Parent, Guardian, and Stakeholder:

"We are now at a point where we must educate our children in what no one knew yesterday, and prepare our schools for what no one knows yet."-Mead, Margaret, American anthropologist

 

Below is a list of key findings from educational research:

  • One third of high school graduates need to take remedial courses in college
  • Most employers complain that high school graduates lack basic skills
  • Most students do not take challenging courses in high school

 

Fortunately for Salem High School students we offer an excess of “high-end” academic programs for your child(ren): First and foremost, we offer the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program (the nearest school that offers this prestigious pre-university program is the $23,000 a year private school, Wilmington Friends School of Delaware).

We also offer, in conjunction with Rowan University, the Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Pre-Engineering Program, as well as, numerous College Board Advanced Placement courses.

In short, we provide course offerings that are second to none!  Because of this work, Salem graduates of 2017 were accepted into some of the top Universities in our country and earned well over 2 million dollars in scholarships and grants.

If you have any questions or thoughts regarding our school, district or programs please do not hesitate to contact me at (856) 935-3800 ext. 4220.

 

Educationally yours,

 Dr. MIchel
