DIAMOND BAR, CA--Diamond Bar High School has been honored among the nation’s best as a 2022 National Blue Ribbon School.
A total of 297 schools across the country, with 29 in California, received this year’s highest honor by the U.S. Department of Education.
“Walnut Valley USD takes great pride in announcing this exemplary mark of distinction!” shared Superintendent Dr. Robert Taylor.
“This coveted award is a testimony to the commitment Diamond Bar High educators have in meeting all of their students’ academic, social, emotional and mental health needs, especially during the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic.”
The Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors schools for challenging students to perform at high academic levels and for making significant progress in closing the achievement gap.
“Our theme this year is ‘Raising the Bar’ and I can’t imagine a more powerful way to demonstrate our schoolwide theme than with receiving the National Blue Ribbon award!” said Principal Dr. Reuben Jones.
“I am so proud of our students and staff, both present and past, whose collective achievements have earned us this distinguished honor … go Brahmas!”
Diamond Bar High School will be formally recognized during an awards ceremony in Washington DC in November.
The prestigious roster of Walnut Valley USD National Blue Ribbon Schools also includes Quail Summit Elementary, Westhoff Elementary, Chaparral Middle School, and Walnut High School.
