DBHS Ranked #1 By Research Group

Hello Parents!

 

I am overjoyed to report to you that Diamond Bar High School ranked #1 as the top high school in California! The ranking comes from an Educational Research group called Start Class.

The criteria for selection was:

 

Exam Passing Rates: This includes math proficiency rates and reading and language arts proficiency rates over the last three years.

 

School Environment: The school environment score consists of factors such as the student-teacher ratio, teacher experience and teacher absence rate.

 

Disciplinary Actions: This takes into account the school's retention rate, in-school suspension rate and out-of-school suspension rate.

 

College Preparatory Measures: This takes into account the percent of students who pass an AP exam, or the percent of students who take the ACT or SAT.

 

Graduation/Retention Rates: The rate at which seniors graduate, as well as the percent of students who get held back a grade.

 

Our Superintendent, Dr. Taylor, sent this information to our Board of Trustees and I wanted to make sure I shared it with you as well. This recognition is tremendous and I am so honored to be at Diamond Bar High School serving our students, teachers, and staff.

 

 

Excellent job Brahmas!

 

Best Regards,

Principal Reuben Jones
