Like some on this page, I am currently a freshman enrolled at Diamond Ranch. I take all honors courses and I'm very pleased with the people, teachers, and environment. Diamond Ranch is a particularly newer school than the others in the surrounding area, and there are a lot of negative, untrue comments made about the school. Also, considering the relatively small student population compared to competing schools, Diamond Ranch does a stellar job with its teams and other athletic programs. I'm in ASB and I've gotten to meet so many people that I've learned to manage personalities and learn practical skills that will help me in the work force. If you personally want you or your child to go on to receive a college education, this school is the place for you. The amount of students, especially football players, that receive offers from reputable schools are incredibly large. I am apart of the football program and it is highly successful, I encourage anyone interested to find out more information. How could DR improve? Well, there could be more enthusiasm about school functions and less hatred from other schools. Nonetheless, Diamond Ranch's student diversity and love all make it great.

I'm a freshman here at Diamomd Ranch and it's been such an awesome experience. This school has so many opportunities for students to get involved. I really do appreciate this schools level of excellence. The teachers really put effort in teaching to the class. All I have to say is this month in school has been awesome and if you come here with an open mind and ready to learn then I really recommend you coming to Diamond Ranch.

It's a great work environment, where all teachers are committed to working together! I love seeing the collaboration between general education and special education. No one is left out, and this shows with our students.

I love being involved heart and soul where the community, the parents, the faculty, and the administration all work together to do everything possible to help put the students on the path to success. Leadership opportunities are available for those that want them and extracurricular faculty gatherings, such as the homecoming tailgate party and the staff holiday party, are family-oriented. This is an ideal place to work and I wake up every morning feeling blessed to be here.

In the 10 years that I ve been teaching Art at Diamond Ranch High School I have always enjoyed our student artwork outcomes. In art 1, the deer eyed students, come into my class saying, I can only draw stick people and fear that they will fail because of their lack of art skills. With a smile I tell them to take a deep breath and let me show you the tricks of the trade. What they see, with surprised open eyes and wide smiles, right off is how they can create realistic drawings. Later their new found abilities leads them to express more fun and complex designs. This teaching strategy relates to all core curriculums. As an instructor and international artist I recommend this public academic instruction without reservations.

The school was very diverse in it's student population, which gave my kids a great experience. This was also a school that didn't short-change the arts programs, and the quality of the teachers gave my kids a great education.

Diamond Ranch High School is a top notch school. I graduated from Diamond Ranch High School in 2007. I am now studying biochemisty at UC Berkeley. Most of my friends from Diamond Ranch have made it to UCLA, Stanford, Harvard, and Yale. The academics at Diamond Ranch will prepare you for the university curriculum.

I think this school is good because it allows lots of opportunities. Not only does DRHS have a great sport program it has also an incredible music and arts program. If your a parent trying to find a good school, Diamond Ranch easily out does any school in its district academically. That is not why DRHS is good though, its what things a student can do at Diamond Ranch High School. For instance DR offers many interesting courses from film production class to game design and robot engineering. If your not a student interested in many 'interesting' classes then is even a gamers club a DR where you can just relax. The thing about DR is you can always feel like you can participate in cool events and have a good time and, if your a student looking for a challenge DR offers many AP and college courses.

this school is the best school ever, i just graduated class of '08 and i was the first in my family to attend Diamond Ranch High School, while all my other siblings went to Garey, when they started college they hadn't a clue in the world what was going on, and when im starting college i kind of get the hang of it, because i believe Diamond Ranch has prepared me for college

They are constantly pulling in new teachers on us, which results in lack of respect, going both ways. I've noticed that students generally respect the teachers who have been there for several years, while the newer teachers are generally ignored and abused. However, new teachers also seem to get los in the material sometimes, and don't always teach correctly. However, for the the amount of new staff coming in each year, they do manage to pull of a decent job.

There is no doubt that this is one a the better school in the district. It has become that way based on students, teachers and administration staff. However, one thing the school lacks is 'spirit'. I have seen some away games for the basketball and volleyball. I've got to say, in comparing to our home games, other school gets better turn out. For a great community such as Diamond Bar and Phillips Ranch, I think we can do better. Let's go Panthers!!!!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
