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 A.J. Dimond High School has been fairly good. I believe that one of Dimond's main strengths lies in its teachers. All of my teachers have been amazing at keeping me engaged and wanting to learn more about the subject. The clubs at Dimond are outstanding. I have taken part in the FTC robotics at Dimond since freshman year. This past year I helped restart the club for Dungeons and Dragons. I have been part of the band during high school and I love it. I have not personally taken any art class, but I have heard great things about the art classes and teachers. One of the things I love most about Dimond is the Engineering track that they have available. I have been taking those classes all three years I have been there and plan on finishing it off next year. The whole track prepares and readies students for college-level engineering classes.
Throughout my four years at this school I have had an incredible experience. I have been quite involved in the excellent activities that Dimond has to offer. This includes student government, various clubs,
NHS, mentorship, and sports. With each activity I had an amazing time and learned a lot about leadership and community. The teachers are also amazing and actually care about their students. The only thing that I would change about the school is the enforcement by certain administration.
