About the district
Anaheim Union High School District is located in Orange County, California. The county seat of Orange County is Santa Ana. Orange County is home to 3,114,363 residents, according to the United States Census Bureau.
Orange County outperformed the rest of California in terms of higher education achievement in 2012. The United States Census Bureau found that 36.6 percent of Orange County residents aged 25 years and older had attained a bachelor's degree compared to 30.5 percent for California as a whole. The median household income for Orange County was $75,566 compared to $61,400 for the state of California. The percentage of people below poverty level for Orange County was 11.7 percent while it was 15.3 percent for the state of California.
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.
Michael Matsuda is the superintendent of Anaheim Union High School District. He was appointed as superintendent in March 2014. Matsuda is also a member of the North Orange County Community College District board. Matsuda earned his bachelor's degree from the University of California Los Angeles and his master's degree from University of Southern California. He has worked as an educator in the Anaheim Union High School District for 21 years.

California STAR program
California's Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) program, which includes the California Standards Tests (CST), the California Modified Assessment (CMA) and the California Alternate Performance Assessment (CAPA), measures the achievement of California content standards for grades two through 11. STAR results include English-language arts and mathematics in grades two through 11, science in grades five and eight through 11, and history-social science in grades eight, 10 and 11. In high school, math and science tests reflect the course in which the student is enrolled. There are four benchmarks to indicate a student's proficiency on STAR; below basic, basic, proficient and advanced. "Proficient" or "Advanced" indicates that a student is meeting or exceeding state standards, which is the desired achievement goal for all students.
