We, at Anza, believe that everyone is someone special. We provide a safe, supportive, and enriching environment where our students can develop a positive self-image, achieve academic excellence, and become responsible citizens

Juan de Anza Elementary School was opened by the Wiseburn School District on October 31, 1946. This school was the second school built by the district and began with eight classrooms and one kindergarten room. Over the years, the school grew along with the Del Aire neighborhood, with classrooms being added to the nine-acre campus. In 1997 and 2000, Wiseburn voters approved two local school construction bonds with plans to completely rebuild our schools. The School Board designated Anza to be the first new construction project in the district, which broke ground in June 2000. The new campus was opened to students in June 2002. During this time the academic performance of Anza students continued to flourish; the state of California recognized Juan de Anza as a Distinguished School in 2000 and again in 2004. Our staff, students, and community look forward to continued success in the future on our beautiful new campus.
