Dear De Anza Community,
It is my honor and privilege to serve as the principal of De Anza Middle School. We are here to support the children and families of our surrounding community. Our goal for every student is preparation for high school success as well as college and career readiness. We believe that every student has the ability to achieve, and we will strive to help them do so.
We are very proud of our school. In recent years, De Anza Middle School was selected to be a state and national School to Watch, a Gold Ribbon School, and a Title I Achieving School. We have been visited by educators across the state who have come to observe the wonderful things happening at our school. We were also visited by the California State Superintendent of Instruction. Whenever visitors see our classrooms, they are impressed with our learning environment and instructional program.
Our doors are open to any parents or community members who wish to visit our school. Parents and families, of course, are invited to all of our special events. However, please contact us if you have an interest in visiting us during the instructional day!
De Anza Middle School is truly an amazing place where academic learning, through a focus on projects, is making a positive impact on the lives of our students and our community. We can't wait for you to see how far we can go!
