Sometimes we discover that there are two cities in different states or different countries that have the same or similar names. The same thing can apply to high schools. It appears from doing a basic Google search that there are at least two high schools that share a name similar to the name Diamond Ranch High School. One is in Pomona, California, USA, and the other, Diamond Bar High School, is in Diamond Bar, California. If my reading of the history of Diamond Ranch is correct, the Diamond Bar (a diamond over a bar) branding iron was used on the Daimond Bar Ranch to brand cattle. One would guess that both schools were built on land that was once part of the same large ranch.
Linked below is a web site for Morphosis. (Phone modem users - this may take two minutes to load) At the Morphosis site you will note that the Diamond Ranch High School they designed is located in Pomona, California.
Diamond Ranch High School
100 Diamond Ranch Dr.
Pomona, California 91766
Diamond Bar High School
21400 E. Pathfinder Rd.
Diamond Bar, California 91765
It appears from my map at hand and from the post office ZIP codes (Zonal Improvement Plan) that Diamond Bar and Pomona are located adjacent to each other or just down the highway a few miles. One might suspect that there would be a high school rivalry
tween the two schools.
Most writers appreciate those who help us to correct any errors of fact in our postings. We would hope that those offering the corrections would do so in a respectful manner.
