I would just like to say that Keizer Elem. school is a wonderful school. My daughter has been going there for the past two years and she absolutly enjoys every day spent there. her teacher is Mrs. schroder and sad to say next year she will be in another class, but i have no worries, every teacher i have met at that school is just so friendly. they all go out of there way to help me in any given situation. I would highly recommend Keizer Elementary School to any parent seeking a fun, safe, and caring school for their child. Thank you Heidi Vogt

Keizer Elementary is an incredible school with caring and talented teachers and assistants. Thank-you for all you do for our children. The music program is incredible and the parent involment is getting better. We have an awesome principal who really cares about her staff and the students as well as the parents.
