Even with all the budget cuts this year, the Kirchgater staff has really maintained a positive attitude. Hopefully, we can keep everyone here. Our kids need and deserve it!

Kirchgater is awesome. We just arrived from another school district not too long ago and we are already impressed with the teachers and administration. We weren't sure about moving in the middle of the year. Now I'm glad we did. My daughter's teacher is awesome and the principal and vice principal are always there to help.

Awesome school. I've been to a few elementary schools in Sacramento City and Elk Grove and A.K. is the best. I love their family nights. They just had a movie night with a big raffle prize. There was also a puppet show last week. After school pick-up is a different story. Gets pretty congested, but I guess with such a large student population there's nothing you can really do.

I've had great success with teachers and staff at Kirchgater. Ms. Kershner is awesome! Always so nurturing to her students. The office staff is always helpful when I've had questions or my child was injured. Highly recommend Anna Kirchgater!

Anna Kirchgater is such a warm school. I will miss this school when my son goes to junior high. Mrs. Hespeler is strict, but nurturing and that's what my son needs. They have been working so hard to afford the opportunity to go to Science Camp this year. I am thankful to be part of the Anna Kirchgater.

A lot of families are not real fortunate (especially during the holidays). All the donations given to a lot of the Kirchgater families were awesome. The band program here is also fabulous. They did a wonderful job this year. What a wonderful confidence booster for students. My student is involved in the after school MESA, otherwise, I would sign him up.

I've always enjoyed their family activities. They have a Spaghetti Dinner at the end of the year and various family science, math, and music nights during the year. I feel family oriented activities at a school provide for a safer community for our children. The school seems to focus a lot on students and their families. I like that. That's the kind of school I grew up in.

My daughter is a student at AK. She loves going to school and this makes my day (mornings) go so much easier. The teachers and staff are always friendly and helpfull. The pick-up and drop-off procedures leave alot to be desired though.

I've not any problems with the parking, because my son is in the morning kindergarten class. My son has serious behavior issues and the teacher and office staff has been very patient and willing to work with my mom and I. Thank you! I know he's a hand full, but he's my only child.

The parking lot is always crowded. I wish there could be a way to have parents come at different times. The Kirchgater staff are always helping keep the kids safe. I know they're trying their best. I just wish there was a better way.

I am a grandparent that is helping my daughter raise there kids. If it weren't for Anna Kirchgater's offtrack intersesion program and afterschool math club, I would not be able to do it. I struggled in school and do not know a lot of what they teach in class. I am so thankful they offer these programs.

The administration and teachers are second to none. They care about their students and their families. They have more programs for students than I've seen at other schools. I would highly recommend looking into Anna Kirchgater.
