History and Traditions

History

Salem Lutheran School was established by Salem Lutheran Church in 1948 as a ministry of the congregation to the community. It is directed by a School Board selected from members of the congregation. The school is an active member of the Evangelical Lutheran Education Association. Salem Lutheran School has since expanded to include Junior Kindergarten through Sixth Grade classes. Salem Lutheran School has been, and continues to be, staffed by certified, Christian teachers and administrators.
