Anaheim Hills Elementary School (AHES) is a public TK-6 elementary school located in Anaheim, California. Unique is the approach of our tight-knit school community of teachers, parents, and staff collaborating together to provide a supportive and personalized educational program for all of our students. As an AHES parent recently shared, "Anaheim Hills Elementary provides top-quality educational experiences to be expected of a private school experience, in a caring and supportive public school setting." Throughout each AHES classroom, teachers utilize small group instruction to support the diverse learning needs of their students. Leveraging this school-wide practice has impacted our students' academic success and growth, as we continue to attain the highest level of achievement in English Language Arts and Mathematics on the California School Dashboard.

Along with our strategic approach to academic success, Anaheim Hills Elementary School also values and prioritizes our students' social and emotional well-being and individual development. As a school, we focus on kindness, inclusivity, and building strong character traits that last a lifetime. Teachers utilize a school-wide Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum supported by the school's Mental Health Counselor. Our school is committed to continuing long-standing practices that make Anaheim Hills Elementary a school that has attained success while supporting the various needs of our students.
