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. Teachers are also using the Next Generation Science Standards and beginning to transition to the new California adopted Social Studies Framework.
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. This year we have adopted the YOUTH POSTIVE program, the program helps support student acquire skills to reinforce good decision making skills, emotional management, and communication skills.
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. Students have access to state of the art technology including computer labs and chrome books, library and other support services and designated technology skills instruction. As we look to the 2017-18 school year we are excited to offer some structured electives where students rotate through some extra classes such as Spanish, art, STEM based math and science as well as more during their split lunch period. 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!

Diamond View Middle School is pleased to introduce a new communications tool called Anonymous Alerts®.
What is the Anonymous Alerts app?
The Anonymous Alerts anti-bullying and safety app reporting system helps combat bullying and other negative activity in schools by empowering students to speak up. Social and peer pressure are some of the hardest obstacles for students to overcome.
The system allows for 1-way or 2-way anonymous encrypted communications between submitters (students, parents or community members) and district administration and/or school staff. Users of the system have the option to remain anonymous or reveal their identity when submitting a report.
How does it work?
To use this revolutionary new app, students, parents or other school personnel can simply visit the
Diamond View Middle School website and click on the “Anonymous Alerts” button or text link to submit a report expressing their concern. Anonymous Alerts® mobile applications can be downloaded directly from the Apple, Google Play or the Chrome stores.
Diamond View Middle School supplies students a simple username and password activation code, making the app remarkably easy to use and students select which school and contact the message should go to. In addition, informational posters explaining how to use the app will be displayed throughout schools and offices in the district.
To send a report from your phone:
• Download the Anonymous Alerts® app for free from the Apple Store, Google Play store, or the Chrome store
• Start the App, enter login: diamondviewms and password: diamondviewms
• Send important reports to school officials
• Add a screenshot, photo or video about the incident
In an emergency, always call 9-1-1!
All students who will be participating in a school sports activity this year need a physical exam from their current doctor. These appointments can take some time to schedule. Please schedule one now and return the form to the school office. Students are NOT allowed to participate in try-outs without a current physical on file.
