According to the U.S. Census, as of July 2019, 55.0% of Diamond Bar's population is Asian, while 19.3% is Hispanic or Latino. Growing up with a Japanese and Hispanic heritage, I was able to easily fit into my diverse city. Making friends was easy for me because I could relate to a lot of other children. This prematurely formed my opinion of our pretentious town with positive connotations. I was also involved in Diamond Bar's girls recreational softball program which made me proud to represent the city's name on my jersey. As the years went on, I have been able to start understanding the reality of everything a lot more and form an opinion of my city in a new light. Despite the convenient location of our city, everything here is fairly mediocre. People here are pompous and self-absorbed, and our high school has overambitious standards for their students. Though Diamond Bar has its flaws, I have found that Diamond Bar is the definition of an average town.

Diamond Bar is a small suburb of Los Angeles. I grew up here and went to the public schools near me and overall my experiences have been really great. Because this is a small city, a lot of people know each other and I found it really easy to make friends. I would definitely recommend living in Diamond Bar!
Very pleasant and safe neighborhood! The public schools are great, as are the restaurant options. Real estate tends to be expensive. Lots of beautiful trails and parks. Rather quiet most of the time, but whether or not that is a good or bad thing depends on your preferences.
