Diamond Ranch High School Reviews
The Best School in the PUSD by far. My son son who is a junior totally loves this school. Was very thankful I didn't send him to his home school. My daughter will be a freshman this year and is totally looking forward to starting school. This school does a good job at recognizing the students efforts. The Honors awards assembly was very nice. Keep up the good work!
As a student in Diamond Ranch, I have been able to participate in many activities that I have never done before. For example, Interact, CSF, Arquitect club, Habitat for Humanity. I have also been able to interact with different people of different backgrounds and ethnicity. The teachers there are great and have a passion for teaching. Especially my Anatomy teacher. The staff and teachers work hard to implement every day a goal whether it be to be collaborative workers, effective communicaters, and maintaing high CST scores.
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.
Diamond Ranch High is a great school to attend.The grounds of this school are mixed with diffrent people from diffrent backgrounds. This mixture of people provides a beautiful place for all of its students to feel accepted. Academics, athletics and curriculm are the bases of which this school is founded on. Diamond Ranch is a school of great potential and a drive to do much with that potential.
