Overall I have had a pretty good experience at Mount Diablo. The academics and teachers are pretty good. What I liked most and has helped me a lot is that they have a lot of resources available for you. I'm enrolled in a college and career program where they help you along the process of applying to collage after high school. They help you stay in track by going over your grades and classes to make sure that you have all the requirements in order to attend to college. I like how we have different academies so it fits the path that you want to take after high school. Some of the academies are ACME, IHTA, MBTA, and JROTC. These academies are really helpful as they focus your classes around it to help you prepare for it. I never had a bad experience with the classes or teachers, the staff are nice and the teachers are helpful. The campus itself is what I had a bad experience with, it was always dirty and filled with trash everywhere. I think that the whole school can help by cleaning up.

Mount Diablo school district is too big to meet the requirements of it's population. You have schools in Walnut creek proper that are part of Mt. Diablo when they should be under Walnut Creek jurisdiction. Other school districts in the area are tiny compared to Mt. Diablo, it needs to be split up so that it can be more properly managed and funding can be more evenly provided. This has been revisited by multiple city councils in Walnut Creek, they need to step up and take ownership of the schools in their city and unify under one school district.
Mount Diablo Unified School District offers many excellent athletic opportunities for student, however, school curriculum is not completely there. It does have the International Baccalaureate program, but as far as helping students graduate and become successful students this district does not offer programs to students who help them with their studies. This district needs more students who are more focused on studies and less on sports activities. It should not be up to the teachers to force their students to stay on top of their studies.
