School Notes

  • The Salisbury School welcomes students from around the world to its 43-acre campus on Maryland`s beautiful rural Eastern Shore. TSS is committed to global education, and to enrolling students from diverse backgrounds who enrich our classrooms and community with their presence and perspectives. Despite what they say, great minds don`t always think alike, and engaging with people who are different from you, and giving serious thought to what they have to say, is one of the most valuable things you can do.  Our campus features trees, meadows, and streams that lend themselves to relaxed concentration. We conveniently offer a small boarding program on campus that makes up 16% of our current student body. With the leadership of our residential advisors and dedicated teaching staff TSS provides guidance, friendship, and assistance during the student`s tenure.  A personalized learning plan that emphasizes leadership, academic excellence, and community service to others, our students are prepared for great success.
