At Diamond Path, our vision is to create a society of life-long learners who acquire a global perspective for the betterment of our world.
At Diamond Path, children develop an understanding of the world’s people, places, wonders and challenges. Through a rigorous core curriculum and active and engaging specialized classes, students learn how to live and work across cultures and international boundaries.
By studying geography, culture, history and global issues, students gain an international perspective and a deeper understanding of the world. All students study either Spanish or Mandarin Chinese, as they work to become knowledgeable and active citizens of our global society.
The international studies theme is woven into learning experiences throughout the day. Students learn about who they are, the world in which they live, how the world works and how our planet is shared. Diamond Path students develop a point of view about their place in the classroom, school, neighborhood, country and world.
Teaching staff at Diamond Path Elementary School of International Studies create opportunities to bring a global focus into their instruction. Our curriculum offers a rigor that ensures students will be prepared to lead productive, fulfilling lives. In addition to our core curriculum, Diamond Path offers students physical education, art, Chinese, Spanish, music and enrichment classes, special education services and English language learner support. Both remedial and enrichment classes are taught before and after school throughout the year.
Welcome to Diamond Path Elementary School of International Studies and our school web site. As the name implies, Diamond Path is a “gem.” It is staffed by creative professionals, dedicated to educating the children who attend school each day. These children come to school with a love of learning that is fostered by the support and guidance they receive at home. Parental commitment is evident not only at home, but also at school. Our volunteers provide a vital service to teachers and students, whether it is chaperoning field trips, completing at home projects, helping in the classrooms, or organizing school events.
We continue to strive to meet our mission of being a place where everyone loves learning. As an International Studies magnet school, we are excited to be able to offer students a choice of learning Chinese or Spanish as part of their educational experience at Diamond Path. Additionally, classroom teachers and other teaching staff are creating opportunities to bring a global focus into their instruction.
Our curriculum offers a rigor that ensures students will be prepared to lead productive, fulfilling lives. In addition to our core curriculum, Diamond Path offers students regular physical education, art, Chinese, Spanish, music, enrichment classes, special education services and English language learner support. Throughout the year, before and after school classes are taught, both remedial and enrichment. Our fourth grade students spend three days at the Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center each fall. We host P.E., math, reading, writing nights, and a variety of music programs for families to enjoy. I invite you to explore our web site and visit our school.
