    five of my 13 grandchildren (including 2 that we are raising) have attended Diamond Hill. In my opinion Mr. Ramey staff and teachers are the best of the best! Robert Vaughn

    I have just transferred my children to this school and in only a month they have improved very much not only their grades but their attitudes towards homework and going to school have improved as well. The teachers and the staff are wonderful and they knew who my children were from the first day. It is a very community oriented school and they work hard to make learning more enjoyable than the normal hum-drum classroom. Great school!

    I have a child that attend this School & she can use more help which they do not give at all! They need an afterschool program which would be better for some kids in the evening when they get out of school.Another thing they need is their own buses so they want be home so late! I have sent my child to 2 other schools in the past & they elped her with everything she didn't understand & she was caught up with the rest of the class in no time! So that shows me that Diamod Hill isn't doing a good job at things I know she knows but they don't. I guess my next step is to put her back at the best school I think she went to before. She was brnging home awards and certificates all the time & I think that would be best for her!
