Because this is a Title 1 school, the teachers are required to teach curriculum, in my opinion, that is not age appropriate for the students. The teachers are very friendly and care about the students, but seem to be stuck conforming to what politicians feel is best for our children to learn.
My four year old son who has DS goes here and I LOVE the teachers and staff at the school. They are all very nice, knowledgeable, helpful, and caring. Especially with the special needs kids. I would recommend this school to everyone who has a child, especially those with special needs.
I was new to the area and very hesitant about putting my kids in a school i knew nothing about. However, after talking to different teachers at several different schools, I honestly felt that the teachers at Diamond Springs had a better understanding of the children they were involved with. After one day my kids were excited to go back and learn more!!
