    My family and I love the De Anza teachers and staff!!! We moved out of the district five years ago and have transferred in every year since. I have 5 children. My oldest began her journey as a kinder and is now in high school doing incredibly well!I Out of my 5 children I have 2 still in elementary. The PTA is very active and welcoming to any new volunteers. They provide many extra activities for students and families to come together as a De Anza community. The staff and teachers have always made my children feel like school is a second home for them. And my children have all gotten a fabulous education here at De Anza! Our new principal Mrs. Golden is great! She is very approachable and friendly and truly seems to have the student's safety and education as a top priority! We are planning to continue at De Anza until our youngest advances to middle school! De Anza Tigers Rock!

    Dear De Anza Parents I'm so honored to be your new principal. Parents are truly the first teacher in a child's life and I am amazed at the knowledge wisdom and support all of you are providing our school family. You have made my first few month's at De Anza extraordinary. I appreciate the Kinder to College T-shirts that PTA purchased and our first movie night the seats were packed with families who would rather be at De Anza than anywhere else. Together we will move mountains. Thank you for the support and inspiration! Sincerely Mrs. Golden your proud Principal!

    Great principal staff and teachers! I originally wanted my child to attend a local charter academy but we didn't get in. We attended this school because it was our designated school. After the first year there I realized how lucky we were to not have gotten into the charter school and we chose to continue on at DeAnza rather than reapply at the charter school.

    My school is a kinder to college school full of wonderful students and amazing parents! The music program is amazing! The school recently purchased over 70 chromebooks 45 galaxy tablets and over 50 IPADS to integrate technology! A school on the rise!

    My kids love this school. I have never seen my kids so happy to go to school every day. This year PTA gave all the kids shirt to wear on Friday. My kids were so happy because they did not have a school shirt because we don't have the money to buy them both a shirt this year. The office staff is great and from the teachers I have met are all so nice. I am happy my kids go to De Anza this year. Go DeAnza Tiggers

    My four year old ACTUALLY wants to go to school because this school is awesome. Great teachers. Great mix of dicipline with reward. All the teachers are really on the ball here. The principal Mrs. Golden has really done a wonderful job of making the school a safer and more organized place. I feel proud to have my kids attend this school.

    This is out 2nd year here at DeAnza. My oldest loves it and my youngest(4) can't wait to start school next year. The office ladies are so nice and willing to do anything to help you. The Teachers are just AMAZING and Mrs. Golden is so great. She has made our school so much safer and she is working hard to better our school even more. Our school has a great PTA that wants to help our kids and school. I have never seen so many ladies wanting to help the school so much. I am happy to say I joined PTA this year to help out at the school and help our kids. The kids always come first at DeAnza.

    We have been at De Anza for 2 years now. I have to say that it's a great school. The teachers and staff are wonderful. Principal Golden is amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better new principal this year. We will continue to grow as that's what every parent should want. I am proud to be a De Anza Tiger!

    I don't agree with any of these parents making rude comments about the school Principal office staff and teachers. First of all these are the kind of parents that are not involved at the school. I volunteer as a parent and I see what is going on. All those parents complain and want us to cater to there needs. Instead of being involved into their kids education or social lifes. My children attend DeAnza and I love it. Test scores are high. Communication is a A+. Programs they offer are terrific Campus Supervisors are the best The teachers are awesome. Bullies at the school well like if your child is a saint. It takes two to mingle.I am very happy with this school. And I had my children in private schools and I was not satisfied of what programs they had offered DeAnza is a school of excelence!

    I'm sorry to have to agree with the other comments regarding Mr. Dominguez. This is the worst principal I have ever dealt with he has very poor people skills I do not feel I can talk this man!

    My son has been attending DeAnza for 3 school years now and although I am not a fan of the principal or the office staff the teachers I've encountered are the best. Ms. Woolfrey Ms. Walker and Ms. Milchman have all been excellent teachers to my son. I am never satisfied with the office staff or the principal but I can always count on these teachers. I give them my many thanks and a round of applause.

    We love this school. The staff is great and my daughter really enjoys going.

    My son has been attending DeAnza for 3 years and we have had a wonderful experience with his teachers every year. As for the principal I have been very unimpressed and dispappointed w/ his lack of profesionalism and people skills luckily my son has excelled. Also all but one of the aides on campus seem so miserable and unhappy working w/children. I have to say that I opted to keep my child in DeAnza vs. sending to Charter because of the higher test scores compared w/ other schools in the district. But taking into account the community surronding the school my son has made some really good friends and I have come to know their parents who are very involved and am grateful for that as well.

    My children have also had problems with bullies. Nobody seems to do anything about it. Also the communication skills with the principal is very poor. My daughter has been falling far behind and there is little support from her teacher and school. Very minimal if any strategies have been taken into consideration. The school does very little to meet your needs and instead does wg=hat is more convenient to them.

    This school used to be so much better but growing population and lack of schools has overpopulated this school. This school has some great teachers but unfortunately they are overwhelmed with new standards and requirements placed on them.

  • (7 years ago)

    Deanza is such a great school. Teachers seem to care about the progress of their students. Mr. Dominguez is very involved. My son loves this school.
