Test Scores

We appreciate that each student has been given individual gifts from God. Our goal is to have each student work to expand their God-given potential.

Although test scores are not a guarantee of the growth for each student, these averaged results of our most recent Standardized Achievement Tests serve to show that in addition to growth in spiritual matters, Salem students thrive academically.

“At Salem I experienced a strong academic curriculum in a Christian environment with teachers who took an interest in each student.”
