Welcome to Salem City School District
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.
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. 2013-2014 Message from Dr. Michel, SCSD Superintendent.
All schools in the Salem City School District are closed today, Monday December 9th, due to Winter Weather Conditions.

Crane (Class of 1954); and the Stanley military family - Kenneth A. Stanley (Class of 1976), Brittany R. Stanley (Class of 2002) and Kendrea L. Stanley (Class of 2009).

SMS Pennant Project
The Salem Middle School Counseling Office has started the Pennant Project. School Counselors, Ms. Fialkow and Mr. Pszwaro, are emailing colleges and universities asking for their pennants so that they can be displayed in our school to expose our elementary school children to post high school education as early as possible. Hopefully, we can help lead the way for our young scholars to find themselves at many wonderful institutions. The response has been phenomenal. Soon the halls of Salem Middle School will be covered in pennants and posters.
