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.

Student Council Fundraiser

    Hurricane Relief Fundraiser

    Student Council members, with the support of the Diamond PTA,  are selling drawstring bags to raise money for classrooms in the communities affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria.

    The bag (pictured above) costs $10. PURCHASE BAGS

     General donations can also be made instead of purchasing bags. 

    All proceeds go directly to classrooms in need through an organization called DonorsChoose. As a group, we will choose projects posted by teachers and schools in affected areas.

    The Diamond Student Council is a group of students dedicated to making positive change, not only at Diamond, but also in the Lexington community and throughout our world. With your support, together we can make a difference!

    Student Council members will be present during Back to School night, so please stop by and ask us any questions.
