Welcome to Diamond View School. Our outstanding instructional staff serves middle school students in sixth, seventh, and eighth grade. At Diamond View School we value respect, responsibility, and achievement. Our teachers are instructional leaders who use current instructional strategies and regular assessment to ensure that all students meet grade level standards. We strive to prepare our graduates for success in high school, with a focus on college and career.
During the 2013-2014 school year, our school will implement Common Core State Standards in English language arts and mathematics. Common Core State Standards were developed through a national movement to establish consistent and clear education standards for students in the United States. These learning goals help ensure that students meet college and work expectations, are prepared to succeed in a global economy and society, and are provided with rigorous content and application of higher knowledge thinking.
Our school provides a safe environment for student learning and growth. Rules and high expectations for conduct are clearly communicated and consistently enforced. Students and staff show respect and integrity and are recognized by the community for their academic excellence, citizenship, and professionalism. We continuously seek to involve families as partners in the education of their children. Parents are encouraged to participate in school activities.
We offer a comprehensive middle school experience for students. Along with core instruction, students benefit from a daily intervention/enrichment block where instruction is tailored to meet academic need. Students also participate in an inclusive physical education program, use state-of-the-art science labs, and have regular access to computer lab, library, and support services. Students are encouraged to participate in our Extended Learning Program for additional academic support and help with homework.
Student leaders help facilitate many of our extra-curricular activities which include student council, school spirit rallies, dances, merit shop, key club, and book club. We offer many afterschool activities including Drill Team, Boys’ and Girls’ Basketball, Girls’ Volleyball, Cross Country, Track, School Newspaper, GATE, Drama Club, Yearbook, Geography Bowl, and Spelling Bee.
At Diamond View School, we seek to meet the diverse needs of our community in a safe and nurturing environment. We take pride in our “Pride of Panthers!”
