EDGE Online Program

We will continue offering our online-only Enhanced Digital Guided Education (EDGE) program. Students who are in EDGE will remain connected to their resident school while receiving online instruction by Salem-Keizer’s EDGE teachers.

Starting in the fall of 2021, EDGE students can choose between two learning pathways to best meet the needs of individual students and their families. One option is called EDGE Connected, which includes daily, teacher-led instruction. The other option is EDGE Independent, which is student-paced with teacher oversight and offers a more flexible schedule.

Deadline to register for a guaranteed EDGE spot

The deadline to register for a guaranteed spot in EDGE is Friday, May 14, 2021. Students registered after this date will be enrolled if there is room in the program.

North is an (IB) World School

North Salem High School Authorized as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School

North Salem High School has become the newest member of an ever-growing global community of 5,400 schools offering the International Baccalaureate (IB) in 158 different countries. North Salem will be the 20th school in Oregon providing the IB Diploma Program (DP) and only the 3rd providing the IB Career-related Program (CP); North is the first to offer both the DP and CP in Salem-Keizer.

Dr. Chad Towe, principal of North Salem High School says, “North Salem High School is well prepared and perfectly suited to usher in this new era as we join a group of schools that deliver a challenging, rewarding, and accessible international education. The recent authorization for both the IB Diploma Program and Career-related Program marks a significant moment worth celebrating with the students who will benefit from an IB education, and our entire school-community, who all have much to be proud.”

IB DP and CP Coordinator Michael Simental says, “The North community has long been committed to ensuring all students have access to a rigorous and equitable education. Neither the DP nor the CP are ‘elite’ programs intended only for the most gifted. All students are encouraged, supported, and welcomed.”

Superintendent Christy Perry says, “This achievement represents North’s commitment to high standards and creating an environment where students are encouraged and supported to become caring, reflective, and principled international thinkers and communicators.  I know the North staff has prepared for this accomplishment and students will mark this occasion for years to come; the entire community will rise to meet these opportunities from our foundation of shared excellence.”

Students are now encouraged to forecast for the IB Diploma Program and IB Career-related Program for the 2021-22 school year; the first cohort will begin their studies in the Fall. Any parent or student interested in learning more about North’s IB Program should reach out to North’s IB Coordinator, Michael Simental.

Selecting Classes for Next Year

North Salem High School Forecasting (selecting next year’s classes)

The North Salem High School Counselors have been busy creating a website for current 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th grade students. The website will guide you in selecting classes for the coming 2021-22 school year.

Counselors will be conducting live, guided sessions through ZOOM on the following dates during Social Studies and Science classes. Students are scheduled by grade level:

  • 9th grade – Tuesday, March 2 – Friday, March 5
  • 10th grade – Tuesday, March 9- Friday, March 12
  • 11th grade – Tuesday, March 16 – Friday, March 19

Students and parents are encouraged to review the video and PowerPoint presentations, copies of the 2021-22 Course Catalog, forecasting form and elective guide included in each grade level tab on the home page before the guided session.

Students can also complete the forecasting form before the guided sessions, but are encouraged to wait until the forecasting session with their counselor. Informative phone dialers for each grade level will be broadcast weekly, so listen up Vikings!
