Prinicpal's Message



Welcome to Santiago School. We are committed to provide an enriching learning environment for all students:  kindergarten through eighth grade.

Our students begin each day with a focus on our 3Rs:

      ·        Ready for school

      ·        Responsible for learning

      ·        Respectful with words and actions

We believe that high academic standards, together with high behavior expectations create a learning environment that is supportive, rigorous, and enriching.

We have embraced the common core state standards, focusing on the 4Cs’, empowering our students with the skills and tools necessary to be successful in college and careers in the 21st century:

·        Communication:  Sharing thoughts, questions, ideas, and solutions

·        Collaboration:  Working together to reach a goal; putting talent, expertise, and smarts to work

·        Critical Thinking:  Looking at problems in a new way, linking learning across subjects and disciplines

·        Creativity:  Trying new approaches to get things done equals innovation and invention

It is our belief that collaborative efforts among staff, students, and parents ensure that all students thrive within an environment that fosters academic success.

Santiago Elementary
History of Name
Santiago Elementary School was named for
Rancho Santiago de Santa Ana
Santa Ana Santiago


     A Spanish land grant that lay entirely in what is now Orange County, the Rancho Santiago de Santa Ana, became the location of the city of Santa Ana. The rancho was the home of two of the oldest families in California, the Yorbas and the Peraltas. Consisting of 62,516 acres, the rancho extended along the east bank of the Santa Ana River from the mountains to the sea. Settled early enough to provide homes for the third and fourth generations of the Yorbas and the Peraltas, it was eventually the location of at least 33 historic adobes. C. E. Roberts (W.P.A. Adobe project, 1936) considered it to be one of the very best examples of the California rancho.
      The Rancho Santiago de Santa Ana stretched for more than 25 miles, from the ocean to the mountains. Its western boundary followed the southeast bank of the Santa Ana River. The property was bow-shaped, being two and a half miles wide at the ocean end and six and a half miles wide in the middle. The land comes to a rounded point on the north end. Located midway along the southern border of the Rancho Santiago de Santa Ana, Red Hill is the point where three famous ranchos come together. From the top of Red Hill you can see lands that once belonged to the Rancho Santiago de Santa Ana, the Rancho San Joaquin, and the Rancho Lomas De Santiago.
