This school is awesome, from the teachers to the parents, to the wonderful children that attend this school. Their new principal is very responsive and involved. My children attend 1st and 4th grade, and their teachers, once again are super great. What I love most about this school is they listen, and they are kind, and your child gets a good education, all while being in a loving environment. Yes there is the religious aspect, but what they teach the kids is very general and really they focus on being kind people and loving themselves, their friends and of course God. If you are looking for a school check this place out. It is a small school, yet their programs are great. They offer language, art, laptops for the kids, an awesome science program and so much more.. Well worth the money, and worth the investment to give your child a rock solid foundation before you put them in "public" school where teachers don't (because they can't) show affection and kindness. My kids need that and flourish with that approach. Go Salem!!! You Rock!

With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
If you are thinking about private school for your child in the aftermath of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you should exercise even more due diligence than you usually would. More here.
