Description

Salem Middle School is a multi-track year round middle school with a proud history of student achievement and growth. Opened in 2004 as a traditional calendar school but converted to a year round calendar in July, 2007, we have earned the distinction as a Real D.E.A.L.(dedicated educators, administrators,learners)School in 2006 by the Governor, an Honor School of Excellence six years in a row from 2004-2010, and School of Excellence in 2010-11.

Every school day our students hear over our intercom: "Let's work hard, be positive, and learn together." Salem Middle is a great place to be!!!!











Curriculum: Year-Round

Unique Features

* Traditional 180-day school year divided into nine-week quarters with a three-week break at the end of each quarter

* Continuous cycle of learning

* Remedial and acceleration programs offered during track-out as resources permit

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: 2:56 PM, Thu, Apr 3, 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.
