principle sherman is rude and should have been a policeman instead of a principle, everyone at this school is asian or indian and its really disappointing in the lack of diversity the pick up and drop off situation is a disaster, don't come here unless you live walking distance because you will be waiting in a mile long line , this is an elitist school so the api scores are that because the parents are either tutor providing and/or one parent is home full time household my kids teacher was very nice very concerned although i don't believe she was a parent i did not like that i believe that only a parent can empathize with other parents concerning a child's learning, principal sherman will videotape you upon dropping or picking up your child there is no parking to park you car and take you child to school, you will have to arrive 30 minutes early in order to bring you child to school with out waiting in a 180 car pile up the street crossgaurds are inept and do not know what they are doing and they take matters into their own hands such as knock on your window to let you know what you are doing wrong or jump in front of your car to not let you pass by and they will harass. aviod this

The teaching here is pretty nice, though some of the teachers do just throw homework at the kids. But the most pathetic thing is the office staff! They are so RUDE! Once I went to the office after school waiting for my parent. I started doing my homework and the secretary just started yelling at me. I just said " I can do my homework!"(I had talked to my mom on the phone and she said she would be there to pick me up. So she called up my teacher and my teacher told her and she just scowled at me and sat down! Very rude people!

The teachers makes 20% effort and the remaining 80% is students plus their parents. Don't be fooled by the high api scores.Some teachers don't do anything other than gossip and shop online while sitting in the class. The district is negotiating the contract so the teachers are bitter, working to the contract, come around 7:45 and leave at 2:30 Pm.Some teachers can be actually seen talking on their cell phone , standing in the shade while they are on yard duty !! There are some teachers who are sincere towards their work but its like a drop in a bucket! Their API is higher because parents are made to teach and supplement through tons of homework !

Excellent school. The teachers care so much about the kids and go the extra mile to ensure that each child is accommodated. Top notch education always looking for way to keep the parents involved in our kid's success. They communicate very well. We receive updates each week via a individualized breakdown on each assignment and test/quiz grade. They are on top of their grading and never let anything fall behind. Weekly newsletter points out important dates and items specific to child's class. This school from k-6 are really involved with each student and their success. Even with a school of this size all of the teachers and staff know every student and have a singular focus towards offering a 1st class experience for all. Many parents are involved in the school through PTA and other organizations that help to shape the future of the school to meet everyone's needs. Very welcoming for new families and encourage involvement from the beginning to make this the best elementary school in the South Bay!

Teaching is so horrible! Too many drama as what my child said to me! Also, some lunch lady cannot give my son lunch because of "low balance of money"! How are they going to eat? They're going to starve!

The teaching here is ridiculous! You better have a stay at home mom or dad. The teachers just throws the homework at students even if he/she doesnt' understand. Not all kids learn at the same rate. Some might understand quickly and some might have a difficult time. Shouldn't every child understand the material that is being taught in school? Not get sent home with materials and have you as a parent teaches them. What if your family have both working parents? Not every household has a stay at home mom/dad. On top of that providing a roof and food for your family, you have to come home and teach your kids. Another concerns is the amount of homework given to students. Enough is enough! Do not overload the students just because some parents feel the work isn't enough for their child. You do not boost the amount of homework just because some parents thinks that their child have too much free time at home. Like I said, every student learns at their own rate. This schools only pushes students to pass the STAR test for a higher ratings. That means ALOT OF STRESS for the STUDENTS AND PARENTS! If your child doesn't do well, its the parents fault! They do not care!

When we were shopping for a house in 1997, we looked at Cupertino and Fremont and Evergreen. We chose Evergreen because we thought the area has a good mix of all races and the schools were just perfect: not too competitive but not too easy. However, Evergreen schools these days no longer have a good mix of student population. More Asian, especially Indian and Chinese have moved in. These two groups make up about 70% of the student population at Matsumoto. The school is focusing on academic performance, just like other schools in Cupertino or Fremont. Matsumoto school's API is getting higher and higher every year. The students have a heavy load of homework. Teachers routinely give homework on the weekend. I kids should be able to have fun on the weekend. Weekend should be reserved for church, for music, for sport, for birthday parties,... NOT for doing homework. I hope Matsumoto teachers and the principal realize that the kids and the parents do not want homework on the weekend.

Aside from having a high API score, parents at Matsumoto are very happy with the leadership of the current principal, Mr. Sherman. Students having excellent academic performance is wonderful but what really matters is the genuine concern and care Mr. Sherman gives to all the students. My child is now in middle school but I still have nephews and nieces who attend Matsumoto. My nephew has challenges, school does not come easy for him, but with Mr. Sherman and his team's support, my nephew is doing very well! Mr. Sherman genuinely only wants what is best for all the students. As a parent, he has always shown warmth and goes an extra mile for whoever needs help. Thank you Mr. Sherman! Keep up the great work! Our community is so lucky to have you!

My son has been in this school for 3 years now and TM has done wonder to him! He is confident and positive about school. Very caring principal, good teachers and admin. They are making it the best it can be! Though PTA is struggling for parental support, it's not the problem of the school - it's the parents!

My daughter has attended TME, for the past two years and I have to admit that she has had a better year this year as apposed to last year, but I honestly feel that they, the school teachers, suffer from lack of Staff development and this show in the way that they teach our children.

I have had three children attend this school and I am sorely disappointed in this school's performance. In my experience with this school, many teachers do not teach the material enough, rather they rely on parents to teach the children the concepts at home. Also, there is a profound communication problem between parents and most teachers. When any issues arise, the teachers do not communicate the difficulties the child is having until it is far too late. There are a small handful of teachers that truly live up to the expectations of a school with this reputation, but the rest just fall down flat. The music program available is fantastic, but it is only because of the generosity and willingness of the volunteer music teacher to donate her time and personal resources to this program. Once her children have graduated or moved on, so will the entire music program.

My child's 6th grade teacher has focused on writing and reading, math and social studies, sports and art projects and occasionally involved parents as needed. My child's grades improved overall since she was in this class. My other child's 3rd grade teacher also did a fantastic job in informing parents how their child progressed by doing weekly progress reports. Overall, the school has done a fine job with reading/writing. In math, school can teach simpler techniques in solving a math problem. The classroom text books have a very lengthy problem solving techniques. The science program can get a boost, although school encourages it. Parking/Driveway has been and nutrition services have been an issue. The education students get, the standards the teachers/principal have set to achieve high standard goals, overcome the minor drawbacks like parking and nutrition services.

Highly dependent on teacher. Some teachers encourage students to participate in optional programs(Reflections, Young Authors, Science Fair, Student newspaper, Math contests). Some do not even respond to parent queries about these. Homework: Some grade it with useful comments. Some just don t return it. Some adapt it as year goes by or some kids move faster. Parent volunteers in classroom: Some welcome, some discourage till parent opts out. Using free resources: example: onlineintervention.com some use it. Some refuse to. Reading levels: Some evaluate students periodically, so kid can pick appropriate books. Some lump the whole class in 1 level for the whole year. Communicating: Some teacher have a detailed weekly newsletter Some monthly, some not at all. My wife looks after kids afterschool ( same grade, different rooms) Can see the progress kids make with a good teacher, and how they regress with a not so good one.

Matsumoto teachers,Principal and staff work in unison to make this school one of the top rated schools in this area. Teachers work hard to motivate the kids to excel above and beyond their capacity. This years test scores shows the results of the teachers and students involment in their education. Parents and PTA's involvement in the school is surely an added point for our school's outstanding results. Matsumoto is the only school in the Evergreen school district that has an in school music lessons for the whole school which is taught by a parent volunteer (Mrs Hawker)surely is the icing on the delicious cake that Matsumoto offers to its student body.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
