California High School Exit Exam Results Are In: Results are in and Diamond Bar High School’s class of 2014 did exceptionally well.  Our pass rate for last year’s sophomores was 99% in Mathematics and 96% in English. This is even more impressive when compared to the results for LA County: 81% in both Math and English. 

Lunches in attendance: Due to our staff shortages, safety, and health reasons, we can no longer accept lunches left for students in the attendance office.  With a school the size of ours our attendance ladies were spending a good deal of the day on “lunch duty.”  Unbeknownst to the parents, students often forgot to pick them up and they sat, unrefrigerated for hours to be thrown away by the janitors in the evening.  Instead, the district offers a very convenient alternative that you can do from the convenience of home or your workplace.  If you’d like to create a convenient account, click here.

SAPA Social: SAPA will be holding its annual welcome back social for members and new members on Tuesday, September 20th at 7:00 pm in the Golden Horseshoe.  For more information, email Nilima Tanna at desiot@gmail.com
