De Anza High School Reviews

150 reviews
All Categories
De Anza High School is an educational facility that fosters individuality, diversity, academic achievement, compassion and greatness. Faculty members are extremely supportive of students' success and often stretch beyond their designated duties by acting as emotional support systems, life advocates and outside parental figures. Additionally, students are outspoken, successful and honorable youths that shine through prestigious college acceptances. However, De Anza's best attributes are far from its educational statistics, but they are within the unmatched diversity and phenomenal school culture. It is a school that welcomes people from all backgrounds and upbringings into a single fortress of acceptance and genuine benevolence. This school has expertly crafted a family-like union and home for all students, and it has brought me to appreciate ethical differences and to recognize the endless potential that we all possess -- especially the undeniable potential that I have within myself.

I have just recently graduated from the class of 2018 and though high school was a rollercoaster, I will miss De Anza High School. Within the school, a family has been culminated whether people are close or not, we are all supportive of each other. In terms of academics, we have a wide array of teachers who don’t want their students to fail so they go beyond what is necessary to promote success in and outside of classes. There are many extracurricular activities and opportunities that are provided for students (clubs, sports, internships, scholarships.) We have a great College and Career center where ALL students are able to gain the resources necessary to plan and prepare for their future after college. I have utilized this center abundantly my senior year in which I’ve been accepted into 5 UCs. We also have a health center which offers a variety of services and programs for the youth to be involved in. This school definitely has room for improvement, but no school is perfect.
My experience at De Anza High School was great and simultaneously fun. This school gave me access to college readiness programs such as EAOP and Rising Scholars. On top of that I was informed of a program called summer career pathways that landed me an internship. The schools culture is vibrant we have a black student union, Latino student union and Filipino club. I was also able to take part in sports such as basketball and swimming which allowed me to challenge myself on top of taking AP courses.
