Schule Schloss Salem has a highly dedicated Parents' Council which works closely with the administration and various committees in the school. It focuses primarily on encouraging communication between school and parents through a variety of means.
The Parents' Council will gladly consult with interested parents before they make the decision to enroll their child at Salem.
The tasks of the parents' council and its charter are available for download here.
Three external committees have supported the work at the school for decades, and have thus contributed considerably towards Salem's success.
