Best place to live, work, play & raise a family
Welcome to Anza Elementary!
Hello Anza Families!
I’m Aber Maayah and I’m honored to be your principal at Anza. I am very excited to be working with our wonderful and dedicated staff and families. My family immigrated to the United States when I was ten years old and El Cajon has been my home and community ever since. I’m a former CVUSD student and parent. I have been part of the CVUSD family for over fifteen years and have served in a variety of roles. I began my educational service as an ELDA (English Language Development Assistant) and then served as a classroom teacher and EL facilitator. The last several years, I served as an EL and program facilitator at the district office and as an assistant principal.
I believe that our students deserve the best educational experience possible and it starts with caring and supportive relationships. At Anza students will be surrounded by adults that engage them in rigorous academics while nurturing and supporting their social, and emotional needs.
I’m looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you and working with you to provide our students the best educational experience.
Anza Elementary Mission Statement
In collaboration with our families and community we strive to meet the educational, emotional, and social well-being of our students by building relationships. By meeting these needs, students will be prepared to become life-long learners and productive, responsible citizens.

When students fail to see the relevance of what they are being taught, they gradually disengage from the learning process and begin to rethink the value of higher education.
