Welcome to Diamond!

Welcome to William Diamond Middle School’s website. One of two middle schools in Lexington, Diamond offers a rich and interesting program of study in traditional academic subjects, physical education, the arts, and technology. We serve about 850 students in grades 6, 7 and 8. We are proud to participate in the METCO Program, welcoming students from Boston as well as Lexington into our Diamond community.

This website is designed to give you access to a range of information about Diamond, and about your child’s current and future experiences here. Among other things, you will find information about departments and courses, and links to teacher web pages, as well as information about clubs and activities. We hope that you find it informative and easy to use. Welcome to Diamond!

Our play this year is
Beyond Rhyme or Reason
created by Kate Bromley
The production is an exploration of the use of verse, imagery, rhythm, metaphor, language and character in a theatrical performance of poetry.
The evening performance will take place on Friday, October 28th at 7PM. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door on the night of the show.

Join us at 7PM for a visit to our Special Art Installation created by some of Mr. Aman's art students in the lobby prior to the performance!
The art pieces are inspired by the poetry that will be performed in the play and are already starting to pop up all over school.
After enjoying the art, join us in the auditorium for the show!
