The Mission of Diamond High School
Students & Parents/Guardians:
The Staff of Diamond High School will work as a team to assure that our students have every opportunity to succeed. We will strive to develop skills and provide opportunities to our students that translate to achievement during their years at DHS and beyond. Programs will be in place to help students find opportunities to be a part of a well-rounded educational experience that will promote cooperation, respect, accountability, and develop interpersonal skills, which are vital to be successful in today’s society.
Our handbook is a document that covers our expectations, rules, and policies that govern students, staff, and patrons within the Diamond community. We are committed to provide for the welfare of each person, while respecting the rights of each individual. All policies will be administered fairly and equitably with each person being given the opportunity to be heard. While this handbook is quite detailed, it is not meant to be all encompassing. No document can cover every situation and circumstance that may arise during a school year. The administration reserves the right to make decisions and rule revisions at any time to implement our educational program and to assure the well-being of all students. Our staff will be committed to the education of school expectations while enforcing all school policies with consistency and fairness.
The success of each student depends upon establishing a learning environment that is focused on the development of character, discipline, and work ethic. DHS courses will prepare students for the rigor of college readiness assessments, with relevance to prepare students as 21st Century problem solvers.
Together we will make the 2015-2016 school year a success.
The well-being of our students is of the upmost importance. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
