Supporting one another

As students, we spend more than a third of our daily lives in school or taking part in school-related activities. In today's climate, life after school is becoming increasingly competitive, and the education that you receive at a high school level is consequently becoming more crucial for students to achieve their desired careers. As a result of the increased amount of energy and effort required to reach our goals, students today tend to be more stressed than ever.Fortunately, students are just one branch of the tree that makes up a school, and therefore have strong support systems to aid in managing their stressors. Perhaps the most integral of these supports are teachers. Largely taken for granted, teachers go out of their way to engage their students and push them along a favorable path towards their goals; sharing knowledge, offering advice, and acting in their students' best interests until they can't physically do any more to help them, and become stressed themselves. Saltus teachers are no exception to this.

There is a strong sense of family throughout a school, although at times in a dysfunctional sense. Each grade is a tight knit group of students, who, once they make it to their final years, have become brothers, sisters, and cousins. They assist each other by sharing their knowledge, and giving emotional and physical support. This produces an atmosphere of acceptance, allowing for the motivation to do one's best. Student life at Saltus is not an exception.

Hard work conquers all. Believing this, Saltus has inspired a motivation for learning and independent thinking, a commitment to academic excellence, personal integrity and service to others.

Taking the goals of Saltus into consideration, it can be seen that the school has developed into a successful, respectable facility for learning since its founding in 1888. Saltus is, and continues to be, an excellent school with dedicated teachers, intelligent students, and a future which appears bright.
