The assistant principal had bad attitude when I dropped my kid to this school for taking SAT. I saw a lady was yelling when she directed the traffic. That made both parents and students having a bad day. Moreover, her attitude made test takers more nerves before the test. I have been told, that yelling lady is assistant principal. I wonder, with this kind of attitude to teach kids, what would be outcome? I will not put my other kid to this school.
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.
Excellent teachers, strong school leadership, and challenging academic programs,this school has it all definitely recommended to send your child here.
Worst school ever don't go here !!!!!!! take your child to a different community ... La Verne is prefered there is no school in la verne on a hill!! and your child will get the learning skills, and will be treated equally like everyone else not discriminated!!!! My child goes to Bonita High School and i am very pleased. They teach special abilities for kids and it is happy learning vibe once you enter the class!!! Go to where your child will have a positive attitude towards school.... Diamond bar NO NO NO NO!! trust me your kid will thank you for it!!
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.
Good school. My 2 older children went there and attending UCLA now. My third child is attending 10 th grade. The staff are wonderful and helpful.
awesome school the teachers are there to help you when you need it the most! :)
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.
This is an outstanding school filled with amazing people that truly care about kids! Truly one of a kind!!!
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.
Best school ever! They have great teachers, and I love the design of the school building and the fact that it't built on top of a hill :D
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 believ that diamond ranch high school is a wonderful school filled with great opportunities and a diverse group of individuals. As a student I have learned to appreciate the staff and faculty for all thier hard work. I feel lucky to be apart of Diamond Ranch high school.
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!!!!
