  • El diamante only cares about the students that play sports so if you don't play sports i wouldn't recommend it.

  • All three of my kids have gone to El D and have really enjoyed it. There are a lot of dedicated teachers that put in many extra hours of work to make this High School so special. A lot of opportunities to get involved.Go Miners!!

  • I think that this school sucks because of all the steroids. Teachers pretend that there's nothing going on with our sports programs, but they know. OH, they know. I think that we're cheating Golden West in the Battle for the Saddle. There should be more drug testing done. I hear students in the locker rooms on a daily basis talking about how they are taking steroids and it makes me mad!

  • this school is awesome we have the best academics in the whole district and yes we still know how to have fun and no we're not all rich and we're not all stuck up that is just what people say because they wish they went there and sports wise we are also one of the top schools so we are a very well rounded school.

  • I am actually an aunt to a student, but that does not make any difference. I wanted to compliment Michael Tacket (unsure of spelling) on the outstanding job that he did Monday night at LJ Williams theater. I have been to a good number of high school musical performances, going to my siblings school's and my own, and I was astounded at the students abilities and fun that they all had. What a very pleasant night! Thank you very much for you dedication and great work!!!

  • It's a poor school with a lot of rich people going to it. Our school is too stuck on not having anyone ditch that our school doesn't know how to have fun.
