I totally disagree that teachers don't go the 'extra mile' to help students! I think that teachers do go the extra mile to reach kids. Teachers at NDHS 'adopt' struggling kids and many of us take on additional kids to make sure that they are successful. That is the reason we acheived the exemplary rating this yr. An exemplary rating is very difficult to achieve at the high school level. The fact that New Diana received this rating is no accident and proof we have one of the finest staffs around! Iv'e taught in many schools throughout my 22 year teaching career and ND by far is the best! Sure all schools have their problems, there is no 'utopia', but by and large ND high school is leaps and bounds above the rest! I love my Eagles!
New Diana has provided a good educational experience for our children; However, with the present superintendent, I feel that we are losing good teachers and principals. Hopefully, the board will take notice before the school suffers long term. Parent involvement is excellent. I feel like there is a good balance between academic excellence and the sports program. New Diana has an excellent coaching staff. The coaches are really good role models and are very supportive of the students. All in all we have been very pleased with the school.
New Diana seems to be a good school, but they could definitely use some diversity and inclusion training. I have never seen any school that has zero minorities on the staff, excuse me 1 hispanic coach, and 1 black teachers aid. I'm puzzled by that. Maybe I could understand if there no minority students in the school, but I know several students that feel that they are all alone, with no support.
New Diana schools are all very good. I like the idea very much that all grade levels are on the same campus! The teachers are very well up to date on all levels of the system,in case sensitive custody battles with children between parents. the academic level is awesome,supportive.as far as parent involvement it is wonderful!
