Anaheim Hills Elementary School (AHES), home to the Panthers, is settled on the top of one of many hills in the planned community of Anaheim Hills, California. Anaheim Hills Elementary is surrounded by neighborhood track-homes, hillsides, and outdoor spaces. Built in 1977, our school is a highly-rated public neighborhood school with a tight-knit community. Our families and staff are dedicated to the success of all of our Panther students.
With the feeling of attention and intimacy of a small private school, Anaheim Hills Elementary is a well-sought school in our district and county. We recognize and celebrate our diverse campus of learners. Anaheim Hills Elementary is proud to have bilingual and trilingual students on our campus. We have pride in our students, families and staff at Anaheim Hills Elementary school.
Our goal at AHES is to help each student take pride and show individual growth: not only show proficiency but to exceed expectations. Our most recent CAASPP results show these goals as we have attained the highest level of blue in both English Language Arts and Math for the all students category on the California School Dashboard.
For our staff and teachers each day at work is more than a job. We operate as a family; there to strive for excellence, but also to support each other along the way. To do this we focus not only on student achievement, but our own development as educators. Every Wednesday is a modified schedule to provide time for teachers to learn new and advanced instructional strategies, develop rigorous units of study, and engage in a professional learning community to plan for student intervention and support. Dedication is apparent as our teachers apply and participate in teacher-leader programs, such as iteach and iLead, provided by our district to help not only students but other teachers as well. The extra hours, classes, and projects that our teachers complete within these programs are invaluable to our students' achievement and overall pride in our school.
Anaheim Hills Elementary School is a place that students, teachers, staff, and parents want to be. Our school has soul, heart, and a strong community. The positive environment and culture on our campus starts with the Panther staff - we are a strong working family. The climate and culture of our staff is one built by trust, support, and collaboration. It is not uncommon for a 6th grade teacher to collaborate with a 3rd grade teacher, or for the school office manager to meet with one of our 4th grade teachers to collaborate on a project together. We are united, and share a common value of providing the best for our students. We believe that if students want to come and be at school, then we will see them grow and thrive as a whole child on our campus.
We will develop empathetic leaders with purposeful life-skills who enjoy learning in a safe, supportive, and fun environment!
By February 1 of each year, every school in California is required by state law to publish a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The SARC contains information about the condition and performance of each California public school. Under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) all local educational agencies (LEAs) are required to prepare a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), which describes how they intend to meet annual school-specific goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities. Additionally, data reported in an LCAP is to be consistent with data reported in the SARC.
