    We looked at schools across the Sacramento region and decided on Korematsu; North Davis Elementary would have been an excellent choice as well. Korematsu is our neighborhood school and supplies the trifecta A school with a very solid teaching staff a student body (and hence peer group) compromised of kids primarily from highly educated supportive families and the convenience and traditional advantages of being a neighborhood school. The current principal Ms. Ponce does a good job of maintaining control of the direction of the school. A very active PTO helps supply the "extras" while the veteran teaching staff is almost uniformly excellent. We believe that parents must support their child's school with time and money; we do so and are pleased to report that such involvement is the norm at Korematsu.

    Korematsu has been a very positive experience for my children. My daughter who started in second grade had 5 very dedicated challenging and fun teachers. My son who started in kindergarten also had 5 great teachers (the two not so great teachers have since retired).. The reading and math specialist are very helpful. The science teacher is fantastic. Band and strings are offered. A Gifted and Talented strand is available at this school. Before and After school care is available. Most impressive are the children themselves. It is just a nice group of kids. Families are working but are very supportive of their children and school.

    I am impressed with the quality of the teachers and principal. The involvement of parents is stellar as is the PTO. The theme of this school is "Social Justice" which is of high value in these times. We are very happy with our children's experiences thus far.

    Great school with excellent teachers who care about academics and the whole child. The community rallies behind the PTO events and really support the school.

    This school almost didn't open due to various political and demographic issues but open it did and I am so very glad. The staff are fantastic and the teachers even better. The depth of the classroom instruction is phenomenal and the science program is unequaled. I taught 8th grade science in San Juan School District and I had to teach my eighth graders what my kid learned in fourth and fifth grades. Two field trips to Pt Reyes in fifth grade and an overnight adventure on the Balcutha a masted ship berthed at Hyde St Pier in S.F. were experiences that my son will never forget. The outdoor experience at Walker Creek was another highlight that will never be forgotten. And then there were the day trips to Mondavi Center or UCD plus all the great in-class projects that kept my son engaged and interested in school. So many days that he WANTED to go to school. You can't beat that. Than you Koramatsu teachers and staff.
