    "There is good and there is bad. However, there's actually more bad than good. GOOD: DBHS is highly regarded, has high test scores, relatively clean campus, and open doors for lots and lots of opportunities. Students are hard-working, dedicated, but it can be a little extreme. With a award-winning music program, world-class calculus classes, CIF wins in many sports, and a ridiculously high API score of 895 (2013), DBHS is regal. BAD: There are bad teachers for more difficult subjects, and social status and wealth dictates your social standing, which in the end dooms your high school life. Music program "requires" donations, and shuns peers that are less talented and active. The presumptuous majority of students are snobbish, judgmental, and die-hard-study-or-become-worthless thinkers. This is sad, because far too many students think that good grades mean college. Classrooms can be overcrowded, and lack of racial diversity interaction makes a social hierarchy, with the majority race standing on top. The popularity and success of a student in DBHS is dictated by their social standing, or wealth. Kids with money tend to be more "privileged", such as United Student Body (Leadership)."

    "Terrible. How did this school get a 4 stars this place sucked. Only a few of the teachers were really good like the math ones. That's about it."

    "This is hilarious, reading all of these comments bashing this school, Im sorry, but those who did likely did not work hard or worked at all. This is a great school with great teachers and amazing opportunities, its competitive as heck and thats the brilliance of it. Its as real world as you get, so many people complain that its so hard but thats only because they dont understand how hard life is. As a student who has taken nothing but the most rigorous schedule (we're talking all AP/IB) every year, I have to say that you wont find a better school. The people you meet here are great and will move you forward, a good rule of thumb is to be friends with those smarter than or as smart as you from day one. I will admit, around 100 of the people in my class are likely stoners but that was their choice. In summary, make good choices and actually care about school, do both and you will be great. Also, at the comment that all the smart kids go to tutors or something- thats completely false, not to sound snooty, but if you understood the material you wouldn't need to be tutored, and all the people here who care about and work at their classes deserve their hard earned grades."

    "Diamond Bar High School is, in my opinion, such a great school that offers so many opportunities to succeed to its students. Many down here on the comments have written that the school's success is based on solely students' hard work, but I strongly disagree. While currently attending a top-15 university, I see my high school teachers' (Buccola, Alcosser, Hwang, etc.) effort and work ethic reverberate onto my own work today. This school, overall, prepares students very well. As long as students form a positive group of friends, stay active in school-activities (such as band, sports, community service clubs, usb, etc.), and stay focused in studies. DBHS is of course a very competitive school, but it's that competition which drives students to excel and be prepared for their future."

    "There are some great teachers, and a little more bad ones. The band room is extremely messy . The workload is huge and many teachers don't even teach. Staff is also rude sometimes. I do not recommend this school. Everyone gets private tutors, but why? Why should the school take credit for all the good grades we (students) achieved with outside tutoring when the teachers should be teaching. My grades have plummeted going to this school. If you can afford private education, I suggest you enroll your child into a private school. This is not a good school , don't waste your time."
