Hazel Green was closed by the school district in June of 2012. This was an excellent school and my daughter was blessed to have been able to attend there for two years. The closing of Hazel Green is a huge loss for Salem/Keizer.
My son is a Kinder at Hazel Green. The school is absolutely wonderful. Mrs. Alexander is an excelent teacher, and she really cares about the students. I am an educated mother of 2, I decided to become a stay at home mom instead of teaching first graders, so I know a good teacher when I meet one. My son is learning faster than his cousins, and is already reading books very well. They offer many programs that you can take advantage of and get involved. They also have an abundance of great arts and crafts to get into. He is fulfilled with his education at this school. The school itself is older, and could use some fix-ups, but none of that matters when it comes to a great education which is what they offer. I hope this helps,I know you will love your time at Hazel Green Elementary School.
