DeAnza High School

Achieving Excellence


  • CAASPP Testing is this week and next week! CAASPP testing is a measure of what you've learned at De Anza. The scores are also used by some colleges and universities to determine placement in English and Math college classes. 


    Congrats to all of the seniors who are finishing their "senior defenses" and planning their next steps! Every day we are celebrating as we learn of students next steps in life including: trade unions, community colleges, the armed forces and four year universities. We want every student to acheive at their highest possible level so that after graduation they can choose the best path for them! We would like to highlight that 17 of our seniors have been accepted at UC Berkeley!


    Prom tickets are for sale. Reminder to all seniors that you must be in good academic standing to participate in senior events.


    There will be another chip to China this summer. Students who participate will receive 10 college credits! The trip is from July 12th - July 27th. The cost goes up as the spring continues. Applications are now online at The trip is a great chance to travel the world, interact with another culture, and learn some Mandarin!

     Principal's Message
    As we wrap up the school year it is a great time to celebrate this years accomplishments. Over half of the students at De Anza have maintained their honor roll status throughout the school year. Seniors are wrapping up their "senior defenses", and we are receiving notifications of college acceptances and scholarships daily! "Decision Day" or the day that students have to submit their acceptances to universities is May 1st. So far, we know that The Dons will be represented next year at over twenty different community colleges and universities. Throughout the spring the college and career center will remain open as seniors finish FASFA/Dream Act paperwork. 
    Notable college acceptances so far include: Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, UC Davis, UC Merced, University of Southern California, UC Irvine, Columbia University, and more continue to come in each day.
    As a school, we are working hard to ensure that students know that whether they are college or career bound we support their goals and will support them in acheiving excellence. This year, all juniors attended our annual College and Career Fair in order to receive information about community colleges, universities, and most notably trade unions. Our partners in the electrical, plumbing, cement laying, and masonry trades joined the fair so that students could learn about apprenticeship opportunities. We appreciate their support in supporting students in both college and career readiness! 
    We encourage all of our students to participate in summer learning. Counselors have the application for the district summer school. We encourage students to apply soon as space is limited! We also encourage students to apply to Contra Costa College's summer STEM programs. Both the math and science programs are phenomenal and help students to re-take courses they struggled in or to advance. The district trip to China is another phenomenal opportunity! Students have the opportunity to travel to China for 15 days and receive 10 credits. For part of the trip, students will stay at a school in China and for part they will explore the sites in northern China. Applications are due online directly to the PCC Corporation.
    We look forward to an enjoyable and productive fourth quarter,
