A History of Anaheim Principals

The first regular high school classes were held on the second floor of Central School beginning in 1898.

The appointment of Anaheim High’s first alumnus principal has inspired the Alumni Association to take a closer look at the men and women who have filled this top position going back to 1869.

Robert Saldivar, a Class of ’96 graduate, is Anaheim High’s newest principal and its first alumnus to fill that position.

He follows in the footsteps of 23 other men and woman who have led the high school, starting with James Miller Guinn in 1869.
