Diamond Bar High School Reviews

School had excellent academic rigor, extracurricular opportunities, and utilization of technology. Most educational aspects felt very up to date, but had strange allocation of resources. It seemed ironic that we had carts full of laptops while the band door was missing a door handle for several months, or bathrooms were very low quality. Most teachers put thought and creativity into their lesson plans and actively tried to engage students with few reading off powerpoint slides and depending on rote memorization. Music program was amazing and really strived to achieve top quality performance and practice. USB events were mostly beneficial but some were trite and expensive.

Diamond Bar Highschool is a very competitive high school with a good mix of students. Most students and teachers are very hard working and care about the quality of learning we receive. Furthermore, we have a Peer Counseling group and a Wellness center to help students relax and release. However, most students and teachers don't get as much sleep as they probably should because of how competitive we are.
Sports-wise, we aren't the best, but in recent years our swimming team has gotten a lot better. We also have many phenomenal arts programs, however, because the funding goes to the STEM and Sports programs, they have to raise their own funds through performances.
There are many clubs that students can take part in, during and after school, and some students can have a 0 period.
The buildings are very nice, and are currently being rebuilt so they are state of the art, however, bathrooms are lacking considering how many students we have.
Diamond Bar has a racism problem. "Oh you moved here from KSA? Was it for an education?", "Oh you don't have you're license yet? ..... Are you're parents not letting you drive?", "You're from Kashmir? What's that? Can I just call you Indian because it's easier to remember?", and my favorite: "Oh my God! Why are you upset about the Travel Ban?! It doesn't even affect you!" I have friends who do hijab and they all had Mr. Murphy for history at some point. They've all faced profiling in his class: he doesn't like to include them in discussions, pretty much purposely avoids them, he will say things like: "In the religion of Islam it is permissible to kill non-Muslims in the name of God." After he said that my hijabi friend said she'd raised her hand the rest of the class and not once did he think to hear the comments of the Muslim girl in his class about what he presented as her belief. After class she even went up to talk to him but he saw her coming and simply left the room.
