Dear Parents & Community,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and interest in Saline Area Schools.  The Saline Community is very supportive of education and it shows in the results achieved in partnerships with Saline Area Schools.  Collectively your children have:

  • Achieved the highest composite M-STEP scores in the area.
  • 2018 US News and World Report ranked Saline High School #8 Best High School in Michigan.
  • Over 93% of the Class of 2016 will be attending colleges/universities in the fall.
  • The Grammy Foundation listed Saline HS Music Department in the top 100 high school music departments in the United States this year.
  • Won 2 State Titles, 3 State Runner-Up, 11 Regional, 16 District and 22 League Titles in Varsity Athletics (2015/16-2017/18)
  • Won numerous Career and Technical Education medals
  • Six students named to National Merit Finalist Status (2016)
  • Composite SAT Score for entire class of 2018 - 1177 

On Sunday, June 3rd, 420+ members of the Class of 2018 will walk across the stage at Commencement and become Saline High School Alumni.  I am excited for them as they enter the next phase of life and look forward to hearing about their successes.

As Bloomberg Business Week noted, Saline truly is the best place to raise kids in Michigan!  If you are new to the community or want to learn more about things to do in Saline - go to the Visit Saline website.
