Column: Salem High is 'where it's at'


I write this article not only as the principal of Salem High School, but also as a proud graduate of the Salem Public Schools. After gaining a solid foundation at the Witchcraft Heights Elementary School, Middle School West (now Collins Middle School) and Salem High School, I was fortunate to attend Dartmouth College. My education in Salem thoroughly prepared me for the academic and social situations I faced at a diverse and competitive college. After contemplating different career options, I chose to return to Salem High School, where I taught math for 12 years before becoming the principal seven years ago. My wife teaches in Salem and my son and daughter are being educated in the system. Each morning we leave for four different schools across the city and each night we come home to discuss the happenings of our days. Sometimes our dinner conversations feel like a state of the schools summit. Of course there are issues that we help each other with. However, the majority of the talk is about the positive experiences we are all having and how the Salem Public Schools are “where it’s at.”


David Angeramo is principal of Salem High School. This is one in a regular series of columns from the Community Advisory Board for the Salem schools.
