Dimond High School Reviews
I attended Dimond all 4 years. The school spirit was excellent, and the teachers were great and passionate. If you are going to attend Dimond, I recommend playing girls flag football, hockey, and soccer all four years. I made great friends throughout the four years playing sports. I also recommend getting involved in student government, yearbook, clubs, and theater (Saturday Night Live). HAVE SCHOOL SPIRIT, attend assemblies and support your school and classmates! Focus on your GPA and do not overload yourself with AP nor honor classes. Balance your time out with family, friends, and school. I do not recommend getting a boyfriend or girlfriend in high school. Focus on yourself and your future. High School is an essential foundation for your future and can impact your future on how well you do in high school. Take high school seriously, but have some fun! STAY GOLDEN!
My experience at Dimond High School has been a rollercoaster of events. Durring my time at Dimond, we have had shooting threats, bomb threats, swimsuit scandals, football player scandals, and more. Despite all that, I still would choose to attend Dimond over any other school in the Anchorage School District. I believe the pros outweigh the cons. I love the teachers at Dimond. Sure I've had the normal share of unprofessional or unfair teachers like any other student, but I've also gotten the chance to learn from the best educators in Alaska. I highly recommend taking art at least one year with LT (Mr. Lickingteller) Trust me you won't regret it. And I'll be the first to admit that clicks are a problem but I also have to say that walking into Dimond felt like a second family. The people I've gone to school with for the past four years are so familiar to me .
Dimond is a good school academically. It's fairly easy to pass a class as long as the work is put in. I've experiences run-ins with some unsavory classes and teachers in the school from poor overall teaching ability but that doesn't discredit the majority of wonderful teachers I've had the pleasure of learning from. I will say as an Alaskan Native going to Dimond, there is a sense of otherness in the community. The Native population at the school feels sparse and there are some staff that have a bias or are ignorant of Native culture and have made racist comments about Native people. The administration at Dimond is okay. It can be frustrating at times having to deal with them but nothing too horrible. The security team are amazing though and always friendly and helpful. Overall, other than a few unpleasant interactions, Dimond is a pretty good school.
