Description

Salem Elementary is located just north of historic Salem Street, in the quaint town of Apex, which is known as the Peak of Good Living. Salem Elementary was built in 2000 and operates on the year-round calendar. Students at the year-round schools are divided into four groups, called tracks, with each track having its own calendar. Schedules are staggered so that, at any given time, three tracks are in school and one is tracked out. Year-round schools provide a more continuous learning process. Since students do not have long summer vacations, major reviewing in the fall is eliminated. Students and teachers are more energized throughout the year due to regular breaks.

Salem Elementary is an inviting, friendly school providing successful and challenging learning experiences in a caring, safe and nurturing environment. Our success is the result of the dedication and commitment of staff, students and parents. Through integrated learning opportunities students are developing the skills needed to become productive citizens and lifelong learners. The High Qualified teaching staff provides students engaging lessons which require the students to collaborate, think critically, communicate and creatively solve problems.

Salem Elementary is on a beautiful campus where you will find a well maintained landscape, with age appropriate playgrounds, baseball fields, soccer fields, a butterfly garden, an outdoor classroom, and a pond. The school features a well-equipped Media Center, spacious Multi Purpose room, full service Cafeteria, Art and Music rooms, Town Meeting area, Computer Lab and a colorful inviting interior.

Salem Elementary is known for our academic success, as well as several extracurricular activities, such as, Skip Its Team. Skip Its is a jump rope team which performs during half time shows, and during the Apex and Cary Christmas parades. Students have the opportunity to become a member of Chorus, Green Team, Student Leaders and Scrabble Clubs. Our PTA volunteers are very active, supportive and dedicated to the school and staff. They volunteer in classrooms to further learning opportunities such as the KITS program and help to raise money for 21st Century technology.

We are the Salem Salamanders, "Where we do whatever it takes to honor and educate".

Important: Bus routes are subject to change based on actual student distribution, parent appeals, and other factors. The information here will be updated regularly, but updates may take several days to be reflected online. This route information last updated: 10:21 AM, Thu, Jul 24, 2014.

Stop times: Because routes change daily during the first weeks of school, specific stop times are not provided. Parents can anticipate a stop time based on the route start time, estimating 5 minutes between stops in suburban areas, and 5 to 10 minutes between stops in rural areas. The exact stop time will vary during the first weeks of school. Stop times may vary as much as 30 minutes as students settle into their routines. Students should be ready and waiting for the bus at least 10 minutes before the bus is expected to arrive.

Bus schedules: We urge parents to be patient as routes settle during the first few weeks of school. Bus routes may be extended by as much as 30 minutes as students become familiar with a new routine.

Questions?: Contact the Apex Transportation Office.
