Salem High School is a member of the Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC). "The effects of a Marine Corps JROTC unit extend far beyond the classroom and into the community in developing character, leadership, and civic responsibility. The program makes a difference by keeping kids in school, providing an environment conducive to their personal development and growth, and helping them become productive members of the community." As of 2016, Mandarin and Arabic were removed from the schools curriculum, although Spanish, French and Latin are still available as language courses.

Over the summer of 2013, there was a complete renovation of the entire Bertram Field complex. Construction crews installed a new artificial turf field, a track for running, a scoreboard, and a flagpole. This was an important investment because the field is used by the Salem High School athletics program, in addition to various youth sports programs across from the City of Salem.
