    "I totally agree with all the reviews. I have a child currently in the 7th grade. I cannot WAIT for the school year to be over.. so I can get out of there. Most of the teachers are there just to get a pay check. They do not send home homework and when they do it's something the child has never done in class. They sit and listen to children been picked on daily and call all sort of names and then say it's not bulling. They watch children fighting and do nothing, it's like their there but not. The school system does care about our children, they are setting them to to fail. It's sad because it our taxes that we pay is paying them so we are basically paying the to do this to our children. I really think they need to do some house cleaning and the cleaning needs to start with the directors office. IT'S REALLY SAD."

    "This school needs the head of the board of education and do a clean sweep of teachers and administration. Ive never seen such unprofessionalism in a school. Teachers cursing at the kids, kids cursing at teachers. They allow bullying and they dont protect the children that are being taunted day in and day out. Please please please DO NOT SEND YOUR KIDS HERE. The supertintendant needs to start looking at this site and cleaning up these schools in Dekalb county. The enviroment at this school is not a positive one and I think they need to closed and they only recieved a 1 because you have to put a rate. People stay away from this school pure garbage. Lack of accountabilty and discipline. The only middle school on this side of Lithonia and its HORRIBLE. Its a shame the only reason you send your kids to this school because you have no other options."

    "This school is horrible...A large percentage of the teachers are just there for a consistent check...not because they have a passion to teach our children...the school is a fashion show of who can have the blondiest weave....or the highest heels.....there is no thrive for educating our children and pushing them to higher levels unless you do this at home...parents are protesting outside of the school...principals and teachers have lackadaisical attitudes towards educating our children. Teachers don't keep good grade records and I had to challenge 2 teacher by email (did not return numerous calls to schedule appt) which turned into battles with several teacher, because esis portal says my child has one grade but the teachers put a totally different grade in the portal that does not calculate. Then when you as the parent challenge them you almost have to contact the superindent to get them to do there job correctly. Children are always fighting.......the school reminds me of a scene out of "Lean On Me" W/ Morgan Freeman."

    "Salem Middle school has some really great teachers. As well as some teachers who should probably consider a different career or retirement. As a parent we can't place the blame entirely on the individual school. From my observation the problems stems mostly from the students who are a product of their parents. Children need discipline and real consequences. When the parents fail to do so the schools should not be stuck with the burden of attempting to educate children who feel that's not what they want. The system should have an alternative program in place for those who do not care to be there and parents are not supportive in their children educational process. Therefore those who really want to learn can receive all that there is to offer. Clean up our schools, with teachers, parents and students who share common educational goals."
