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.  Formerly, an IB Candidate School for the Diploma Programme (grades 11-12), we just received authorization for the DP will begin instruction in 2017-18 to our 11th and 12th graders.

The school climate at Kit Carson supports a multi-culturally rich environment where diversity is celebrated and we believe that diversity enhances the positive experiences of our students.  Our campus is home to many different languages and cultures that truly reflect the diversity of our city.  Currently we serve a student population from many communities of the greater Sacramento area.

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.
