About Salem Hills Elementary School
Salem School has a long history in Inver Grove Heights. The first Salem School was constructed in 1861 and served children until 1953. The current Salem Hills Elementary School was built following a referendum in January 1952. Three phases of building additions between 1987-1989 made Salem Hills the school it is today, providing a positive learning environment for approximately 450 students in grades K-5.

The district's Early Education Program for special-needs preschool children is located within Salem Hills. The facility houses several Community Education programs including Community Preschool, Kids' Choice School-Age Care and other after school activities.

Salem Hills is the home of Atheneum, the district's program for gifted and talented students. Atheneum was created and implemented during the 2002-2003 school year as a result of a program evaluation and the identification of a large number of highly-gifted individuals residing in and around Inver Grove Heights. This educational opportunity expanded in the 2003-2004 school year to include classes for third-, fourth- and fifth-graders. In 2006, the Atheneum program expanded once again to include qualifying second-grade students.
