Absolutely love this school! The teachers, staff and administrators are very professional. I love the smaller classroom size. Highly recommend this school.
Salado High School is an outstanding school. Eight Academic UIL State Championships and two Texas Lone Star Cup Championships are certainly evidence of that.
Shameful treatment of students has become a tradition under the current administration. Salado is a school that likes to play it by the numbers. They do excel with their Gifted and Talented programs and Student Athletes and are given a different set of teachers than the general population. If you aren't in one of those categories - you will be treated as a second class student. If you are a student with a handicap expect the current administration to fail at meeting federal regulations unless you bring in an outside governing entity to advocate for you. Currently Salado ISD is graduating classes that have never had a textbook in Math (Grades k-12) I agree with other comments that it is one of the safer high schools in the area. There is a drug problem, but it is mainly prescription abuses. Drinking is a major issue, with a higher rate seen among the student athlete population. There is a very high teen pregnancy rate, but those students are often forced to leave school or transfer through ridicule from teachers and administrators. Blatant homophobia from some of the teaching staff forced several students to walk out of class in 2010.
I attended this school. In high school, exactly two of my teachers were not and had never been coaches. The principal and assistant were quick to believe to believe rumors about the students and the counselor was a joke. Some of my teachers were excellent, about 3 of them. But many worked for only one year before moving on to higher paying schools. I don't feel that there was racism at the school as I saw in another review. The vice principal did endorse homophobia (when a gay student went to him about bullying he said the student had "brought it on himself"). Without independent study I would not have been prepared for college. The best that can be said for this school is it is not dangerous, not full of drug users, and it provides opportunity to participate in athletic and educational competitions.
