Welcome From the Principal

Kit Carson is an International Baccalaureate World School offering the Middle Years Program in grades 7-10. Expansion will occur through 2017 with an additional grade level being added each year until it is a 7th-12th grade school.  Currently, an IB Candidate School for the Diploma Programme (grades 11-12), authorization for the DP is expected by the spring of 2017.

The school climate at Kit Carson supports a multi-culturally rich environment where diversity is celebrated. The IB Learner Profile characteristics are woven through our curriculum and students learn important lessons that will serve them well throughout life.  Long-time residents of the East Sac 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, built in 1976, recognizes time-honored Pioneer traditions while at the same time focusing on progressive, forward thinking instructional practices which have led us to this IB path.  Innovation, creativity and collaboration are valued at Kit Carson. Our work is guided by a focus on improving achievement through student centered instruction.
