Black Diamond Middle School Mission

Black Diamond Middle School has a unique school culture that embraces


The six pillars of character: respect, caring, fairness, trustworthiness, responsibility, citizenship


We are a place that values diversity, where students are active participants and feel a sense of belonging and pride. Miners learn to be responsible for the success for themselves and others.


Students understand the importance of learning and have a desire to achieve to the best of their ability.  They receive support in their academic endeavors and learn to be critical thinkers.


We prepare students for success in high school, college, careers, and to make positive contributions to society.

Whole Child

Miners are well-rounded individuals with opportunities to develop their bodies and minds through sports, clubs, electives, and other extra-curricular activities.
