About the Phoenix School

The rapidly changing world of the 21st century requires a different approach to education if the students of today are going to be successful adults in the future. In addition to a challenging academic curriculum designed to meet the needs of every child, the all-important 21st century skills of creative and critical thinking, collaboration, problem-solving, oral and written communication, and technology are integral parts of a Phoenix education. These are not new ideas to Phoenix. They have been part of our curriculum for 26 years. When your child walks through the door each day, you will know they are going to get the attention they need to meet the challenges they will face now and in the future.

A Midwesterner-turned-Salem resident,

Tali Baskind Marotz on Exhibit at Alex and Company

Tali Baskind Marotz on Exhibit at Alex and Company

Local artist, Tali Baskind Marotz, will have artwork on exhibit at Alex & Company

"Tali is a contemporary artist with an intrinsic ability to create her vision on canvas. Her paintings reflect passionate energy and her ability to use color and light creates a bold, yet subtle continuity of mood. The images she brings to life on canvas are a devotion to her own personal expression.  Tali’s work reflects her internationalism. 

Born and raised in Haifa, Israel, she is a graduate of the Haifa Institute of Art.  As an adult, she spent several years living in Germany playing an active role in the Artistry community as well as performing her own art exhibitions.  Later, she relocated to Hong Kong where, for three years, she traveled regularly to exotic locations in Southeast Asia.

Today, Tali and her family reside in Salem, Massachusetts where she continues to create unique works of art. Her canvases are not isolated moments, but a sensitive reflection of lifetime impressions. 

The pleasure of their making is evident in these works. Whether by virtue of natural talent, concerted effort or both, these pieces show an uncommonly exact eye for color, texture, and composition. There is a remarkable balance among found materials and original marks, and between textures and surfaces of disparate kinds. One of the most pleasing aspects of these pieces is the sensation of harmonious rhyme that is created among various images, colors, and forms."

Alex & Company is closed Sunday and Monday.

Arbella Drum & Bugle Corps Performing on Front Street

Arbella Drum & Bugle Corps
Marching Band & Color Guard

The Arbella Drum and Bugle Corps was once the pride of Salem!  The combination of two all-girl drum and bugle corps, Arbella, nautically styled to represent Salem’s nautical history,  took its name in 1975, and a few years later took the DCI All-Girls Championships in Birmingham, AL – not bad for a bunch of girls whose average age was 12.5, many of whom could barely read music!  In the early 80′s membership was bolstered with the introduction of boys.  This was controversial for many, but the Corps went on to produce another quality program until it finally folded in 1983 due to financial pressure – as so many drum corps had done in that era.  (read our more comprehensive histories in the articles to the right —-> )

Arbella was always extremely lucky to have a motivated and dedicated board to keep the ship afloat – as well as the most talented instructors in the field – virtually all went on to become Massachusetts Drum Corps and Music Educator Hall of Famers.  We could not have appreciated it at the time, being so terribly young, that we had the absolute VERY best people teaching us –  many are still at the top of their fields and active in the local area teaching other corps and high school bands.

It is a love of drum corps and this same passion for excellence that a few former Arbella members and instructors created a founding Board in 2011 for a NEW Arbella.  2012 was our Inaugural year.
