El Diamante was supposed to be a promising school but instead it was full of awful experiences not only for me but for others. You can easily fall through the cracks. If you don't make the grades, they encourage you to leave so they don't look bad with the overall student body grades. The teachers could care less about the students and lack respect. Bullying was a huge issue and nothing was ever done about it because of major bigotry. Luckily there were only a few teachers who would help students. It's unfortunate there weren't more caring teachers on campus.

El Diamante is a relatively good school. They focus WAY too much on sports though. I'd love to take more hands on classes, because I'm into building and design (And other artistic subjects), but they really don't offer that many. I take all the art classes I can and the art teacher is absolutely awesome. Such a great art department. Overall, I'd say I'm satisfied with staying there another year to graduate. I'm just eager to leave all the overenthusiastic, arrogant, and snobby people that I have to deal with on a day to day basis.

This school is great in both academics and in athletics. I love it and would be so disappointed if i had to move. We just got 786 on the STAR exam so it proves to all of the negative people out there!

I went to school here. I was not an athlete. This school is totally geared towards the athlete. I went to a UC and I do not think El D prepared me for how hard it was going to be. The teachers are okay, but not nearly as good as I could have had just by walking over to the junior college. In retrospect, I should have gone to the jc for my college prep classes. If you are a sort of college bound students but love athletics, this is the school for you. The rest of us just have to make do.

I'm not a parent but rather a student attending as a freshmen. What I can tell a parent whose interesting in sending their child to El D is that El D has the best test scores out of any Visalia and one-of-the-best in the valley. If your child is involved in band, El D is the best choice. this year El D recieved first-in-state for marching season. Beating out all clovis schools! ...And if your child is involved in Sports, El Diamante is the best! We are proud to have THE MOST DEVOTED coaches in all the valley. I play water polo under Ryan Davis,Ben Blakenship, Rory Collinwood, and Andrew Dean: with their direction we've achieved miner victory after victory.

This is the newest high school in Visalia. When the school first opened, their main goal was to advance education, and the learning of each student. They did not, and probably will never, achieve that goal. The school is way more interested in the sports. I felt awful attending the school because I could not, and did not play sports. If your child plays a sport this is the perfect school for them.

I am not a parent but rather a student attending El Diamante. I rather enjoy this school overall. Sometimes students feel that El Diamante always has to do somethihng just a little different than every other high school. El Diamante runs on a block scheduale which aggrivates some students and we also have a homeroom tues-fri. Only in our fourth year we have almost every (if not every) AP class and many students earned honors for their results in the AP tests. Our sports teams do really well and we already have a rivalry in place. We've earned rave reviews in our musicals, dance shows, and choir shows. Don't let our opening date scare you, we are a very evolved and stable school.

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.
