Salem-Keizer offers a broad range of curricular and extracurricular activities including math, science, sports, Grammy-Award-winning music programs and a nationally recognized Web-based school.

    Graduates who are Ready to Work

    Professional-technical programs, business internships, unified K-12 math and literacy curricula, an attendance program with teeth in it and an Early College partnership with Chemeketa Community College help students prepare for the workplace. Seniors graduate ready-to-work--with the professional skills and the attitude employers want.

Partnering with families, businesses and neighborhoods helps us educate all our children at the highest possible level.

    Local Support for Safe Schools
