  • Salemwood is a wonderful school. I have 2 Grandchildren there. One is special needs. We moved here just before school started. They felt comfortable from day one. The teachers are caring and concerned about them. Having a special needs child is difficult, but we feel great support from everyone at the school.
    Thank You,
