Diamond Ranch's curricular variety is incredible in comparison to other schools in the district, specifically when it comes to the AP classes. Classes like AP Psychology and AP World History have pushed me to think and approach obstacles in more ways than I could have ever imagined, ultimately making me both a better student and person. The football and basketball teams - girls' teams included - are well funded and the games are fun to go to, however the same can't be said for the other sports; most of the student body doesn't care about the other sports like soccer and volleyball. There are a lot of clubs students can join like APES Club and Panther Pals (a club where students can befriend peers with special needs) in order to stay involved and productive - on a social and academic level.

Diamond Ranch High School is a beautiful looking school that can be found in Pomona Califonia. Many of the teachers, administrators, and students are cool. The academics at the diamond ranch aren't all that great, but state test scores have been rising over the years, so the academics have been improving. Some about Diamond Ranch are the facilities and the food. Many of the classrooms and buildings are filthy because students leave their food, which causes rats and other rodents to come. In addition, the school is covered in gum. Although the janitors make effort to clean up all the gum, there are thousands of dried black pieces of gum splattered all over the cement floors. One last thing is the food. The food is not good at all. The food isn't prepared well, and many times, the food isn't even fully cooked. When the food is cooked, the food is usually tasteless or tastes like chemicals. Overall, I believe Diamond Ranch is a decent school and I have had a pretty fun time there.
I love the diversity at Diamond Ranch High School. As someone who is biracial, it is wonderful to see a wide variety of ethnicity at the school that I attend. I also enjoy the many different options for sports programs in which the school carries. Being a soccer player for over 12 years, the competitive sports programs greatly attracted me and my family. Not only are the sports programs excellent, but the school spirit and support is also very impressive. The student body constantly supports one another whether it be for sports, clubs, or academics. Another great plus about Diamond Ranch is its secrete location in the hills of Phillips Ranch where we also have an amazing view. All together, the students and staff at Diamond Ranch High School combine to create a great learning atmosphere and enjoyable high school experience.
