    "The principal has no concern for the students. She is very unprofessional when issues/concerns are brought to her attention by the parents. Example, students schedule were not correct. They were not schedule for the basic courses required for graduation i.e. English and Math. On the other hand, they were schedule for Physical Education. After contacting the counselors on several occasions; the principal was contacted. Her response was they can just take P.E., and take the required courses at a later time frame. She has no concern for the students or their future and should not be an Administrator. There are teachers that cannot control their classroom environment; therefore it interferes with the students learning. Case in point, during the 2012-2013 school year, students were throwing textbooks out the classroom window and resulted in damage to staff cars. When the issue was presented to the staff, they basically gave the parents a textbook response and made no effort to correct the problem."

    "Great school . Overall Salmen High is very good and cares for the students. Most of the teachers care, are down to earth, and will HELP you. There is always tutoring in the morning, afternoon, and during study hall. The campus is beautiful. New and just great looking. Also sports here excel (except soccer) . Many different kinds of people and many from different backgrounds. Overall, most of the kids mind their business and there are no problems. I am very satisfied with my years here"

    "Great Kids and Teachers. Administration (basically the principal and one of the assistant principals) is ruining the school. Teacher are leaving in droves because of their treatment and the school board (even though addressed about it many times) fails to fix the situation."

    "Salmen used to be a great school but it spiraled downhill when they started accepting the failures and post- Jump Start kids and let them slide on by through high school while other students actually worked for their diploma, therfore, there is a giant racial inbalance and standards are extremely low. Salmen is literally known as the "last resort" high school in St.Tammany Parish and the terrible principle isn't doing much about it. Kind of saddens me. It used to be such a classy great high school. Now it is the ghetto of St Tammany Parish Public High Schools and its not getting any better. Just goes to show that they can spend a million dollars on place like that and make it look all polished up but its inhabitants (including staff) are below average. Would not reccomend going to this high school. Trust me. I am a student ther. I regret it almost everyday and i wish i wouldnt have ever enrolled at Salmen High School."

    "If you are looking for a school that actually CARES about the students this is the place. Salmen most closely resembles the 'real world' more than any other school in St. Tammany Parish. Salmen's student body is made up a melting pot of cultures that most closely represents our world. Having said that, the teachers at Salmen go out of their way to attend to the needs of ALL students. As a matter of fact, a lot of the teachers are former students of Salmen. Salmen has a family environment and despite the rumors, Salmen's students have less disciplinary problems and MORE respect than any other so-called 'advanced' school in the parish. The curriculum is the same as every other school and the students get out what they put into it."
