Welcome to Tom Matsumoto Elementary School, in the Evergreen School District in San Jose, California. The Matsumoto Community is committed in its belief that all students must experience high degrees of academic, personal, and social success to ensure their productive futures. Our excellent staff, strong parent community, and hard-working students create a learning environment that is second to none.
Tom Matsumoto has been honored as a California Distinguished school, and a National Blue Ribbon school. Our test scores have remained some of the highest in the state and the district. With the Common Core State Standards as our guide, we are making shifts in our instructional strategies, and we will continue to make sure that every student in attendance has the opportunity to reach his or her full potential.
Our academic program, which includes the core academic areas, (reading literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies) is enriched by student participation in a wide variety of assemblies, field trips, and hands-on activities. Student leadership and shared responsibility are taught through our ABC program, Student Council, and in various ways in each of our teachers’ individual classrooms.
We encourage parent participation. Volunteer opportunities come in a variety of time commitments and levels of effort. Whether you are volunteering in your child’s classroom, serving on the PTA committee, School Site Council, English Language Advisory Committee, or helping your child with homework each night, you make our school stronger.
Tom Matsumoto is our school, our children, and our responsibility.
Dr. Hong Nguyen, Principal
