I love our small town. Diamond is a place where neighbors wave at neighbors and we are all a community. It doesn't matter your race, religion, or background, everyone is welcome here. The cost of living is cheaper than many of the other towns and cities around us.
Diamond is a great farming area, but rocky. The school is average, they could be better and the pay could be better so we could have better teachers. We have three school buildings one for the Elementary, Middle School and High School, we go from K-12. They are all right there and the buses go all the way into Joplin for the people that live there and go to Diamond. The Sports here aren't that good but I wouldn't really know because I don't play any sports anymore. I just want to pay attention to schooling instead of sports anymore. We do have some great programs here; the Agriculture program is great, they get to go to a lot of places. We have a bus that takes kids to crowder for College courses. The school is great, but the kids aren't that great.
A great small town to raise a family. Wonderful town to go to school and teach children about small town life.
