Welcome to Diamond View Middle School

Welcome to Diamond View Middle School. We are a comprehensive middle school that serves sixth, seventh and eighth grade. At Diamond View School our core values are respect, responsibility, trust, and achievement. Our fantastic instructional staff are instructional leaders who specialize in their academic subjects to provide rich learning environments for your students using the most current instructional methods and frequent assessments to ensure all students are thriving in the classroom.
Our school uses Common Core adopted curriculum in both English-language arts and math. The Common Core standards were developed through a national movement to establish a consistent and clear set of education standards for students in the United States. These learning goals help to ensure that all students meet college and career readiness standards and are prepared to succeed in a global economy. They provide a rigorous content and application of higher knowledge thinking.
Diamond View School’s number one priority is to provide a safe learning environment for student growth and achievement. High expectations and rules of conduct are clearly communicated to all students and are consistently enforced. Students and staff show respect to one another and a community of academic achievement and good citizenship is achieved. We always encourage parents to partner in their child’s education and welcome participation in school activities.
We are proud to offer a comprehensive middle school experience. Along with the core instruction our students attend Science, Social Studies and PE periods daily. We also offer a daily intervention/enrichment period where students are grouped according to individual academic need and instruction is tailored for small group instruction. Students have access to state of the art technology including computer labs and Chromebooks, library and other support services and designated technology skills instruction. As we look to the 2016-17 school year we are excited to expand our opportunities for students by offering a foreign language elective to seventh graders and look to expand this in the future.  We encourage all students to participate in the Extended Learning Program, where students can receive extra academic support and help with homework.
Diamond View School has a school wide student council program with elected officers and representatives from each grade level. These student leaders help facilitate many extra-curricular activities including rallies, dances, merit shop, art club, debate, and book club. We offer many after school activities including Drill Team. Boy’s and Girl’s Basketball, Girl’s Volleyball, Cross Country, Track, School Newspaper, GATE, Drama Club, Yearbook, Geography Bowl, and Spelling Bee.
At Diamond View School we seek to support all learners in a safe and supportive environment. We have Panther Pride!

Spring Break

CAASPP Testing-
Each Spring our students participate in the state mandated CAASPP testing. Starting March 20th our students will begin testing. Our testing window runs through the middle of May. It is important that students are at school on time each day so they don't miss their designated testing time and get plenty of sleep and a good breakfast the day of the test. Please call the office or your child's teacher for specific information about when your student will be tested. 
Students will test in both English language arts, math and 8th graders will take the CAST- California Science Test this year. Please see the CAASPP website for more information and practice tests.
