Welcome From the Principal

Kit Carson is a jewel in the heart of East Sacramento.  Set on a twelve acre campus with Spanish style architecture and red brick accents, our campus is a tranquil setting which evokes images of the rich history of California and inspires thoughts of a prestigious Ivy League school.

Kit Carson is home of the Pioneers, both in name and in philosophy.  The school has an important place in the history of East Sacramento with many generations of local residents having passed through our doors.  Long-time residents of the community have fond memories of the original building which was constructed in 1933, and of the storied past of the school.

The “new” Kit Carson, remodeled in 1976, recognizes time-honored Pioneer traditions while at the same time focusing on progressive, forward thinking instructional practices which make us a cutting-edge school of the future. Our campus is home to many different languages and cultures that truly reflect the diversity of our city.
