2006年,博士. Leonard Sax wrote a book called “Why Gender Matters” in which he raised a concern about an increased number of boys not succeeding in traditional schools in addition to being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

当博士. Sax compared this decline in achievement with the latest medical/brain research regarding the process of learning among adolescent boys, Dr. 萨克斯总结说,目前传统学校的设计倾向于发掘女孩的学习潜力. 因此,博士. 萨克斯还得出结论,男孩最好接受不同的学习环境, 尤其是单性别学校, 哪些可以提高男孩的学业成功水平. 看到博士. 萨克斯对单一性别公共教育的研究:

在2013年夏天,达米安的教务主管克里斯·道格拉斯和校长博士. 梅里特海明威进行 attended the International Boys School Coalition (IBSC) Conference at which they heard much of the latest research in successful all-boys education from around the globe.

在2014年的夏天, six additional 达明 faculty members attended the IBSC conference and have brought back a plethora of ideas for improving learning among boys. 这些想法随后与达米安的所有老师分享. This includes a recently implemented “Return to Learn” protocol for students who have suffered a concussion. A number of faculty members have also read and reported on the book “I Can Learn From You” by Michael Reichert and Richard Hawley, which highlights the need for teachers to focus on the relational dynamics that help boys succeed as learners.

在国际男校联盟会议上讨论全男生教育, 与会者还了解到,男孩喜欢到处走动, 竞争, 利用科技, 并对环境进行一定程度的控制.
达米安教育的优势
Many of these researched concepts are learning modalities that have been used for years at 达米安高中. 事实上, one of the great advantages we have as a single-gender school is that we can work towards enhancing such models to ensure that the young men of 达明 thrive and succeed.

当我们在全校范围内应用这些原则时, 我们试图为年轻男性创造一个更有利的学习环境. 想想达米恩的新工程教室. 学生们在一天的课程中有足够的活动空间. 坐在新教室的椅子上,你会注意到它和你一起移动!

最后, you’ll note that traditional classroom desks have been replaced with specially designed tables for flexible classroom design. While our Engineering class currently epitomizes our commitment to an educational experience tailored for young men, we have initiated plans to re-design all of our classrooms with a consideration of the learning needs of young men.
这就是达米安的优势.
我们与波莫纳天主教和圣. 露西当然可以和年轻女士有很多互动, 但这种互动并不发生在下午7:45-2:55之间, 哪段时间是专门用来学习的. What this means for a 达明 student is that the students they are competing with for grades are their peers. 到毕业时,他们不仅是同龄人,而且是兄弟.
这就是达米安的优势.
我们独特的学院体系支持9到12年级之间的兄弟情谊. 每个学院由不同年级的学生组成, 是什么增加了学生之间的同志情谊. 通过房子之间的友好竞争, 学生们像兄弟一样跨年级竞争, 不仅仅是大一新生, 二年级的学生, 初中, 或者高年级学生(这种区别往往强调学生的分裂而不是团结). The students themselves also determine yearly House Competitions (past tournaments have included quiz bowl, 音乐碗, 室外地滚球戏球, 去踢球, 3-on-3篮球, 极限飞盘, 当然还有五月举行的斯巴达奥运会). Freshmen are also paired with a Big Brother who guides and mentors them through their first year at 达明.
这就是达米安的优势.
我们还拥有优秀的校园体育设施. 正如圣盖博谷论坛报去年所指出的那样, 达米恩高中保持#1的体育设施在山谷. 这当然为体育比赛创造了一个很好的环境, 而且学生们不需要长途跋涉去练习.
这就是达米安的优势.
And of course 达明 has The PIT (also noted in the Tribune as one of the top cheer groups in the valley) where the girls come to join the boys in cheering. 参加The Pit是校园生活中独特而充满活力的方面.
这就是达米安的优势.
Also consider the history of Honors at Entrance 奖学金 recipients as well as the AP Scholars at 达明. We offer merit 奖学金s (Honors at Entrance) to students scoring at or above the 90th percentile on the Placement Exam. 目前,184名学生(几乎占达米安学生总数的20%)获得了这个奖项. 这就形成了一个竞争非常激烈的学习环境. 这也解释了为什么2014届212名毕业生中, 其中有不同程度AP学者122人,其中AP学者75人, 16名AP荣誉学者, 31名杰出的AP学者, 8名国家AP学者. 我们确实有很多学者.
这就是达米安的优势.
最近, 达明明矾, 威廉·齐藤,87年, wrote an autobiography called “An Un-Programmed Life” (available through Amazon) in which he noted many memorable experiences from his time as a 达明 student. 不足为奇的是, he emphasized what is the historical hallmark of 达明 and that is opportunity to engage in acts of 基督教服务. 事实上, 我们为我们的服务历史感到自豪, 这通常会在我们的学生中培养为更大的社区服务的终身承诺.
这就是达米安的优势.
最后,我们的校园事工项目是达米安经历的重要组成部分. 这包括参加学生静修的机会, which begins during the freshman year and continues through the sophomore year with one-day on-campus 撤退. 作为初中, 学生有机会参加以马忤斯静修, 在校外举办两天. 最后, 这次静修体验的高潮是为期四天的凯洛斯静修, 高年级学生通常认为达米安大学四年的亮点是什么. 传统上95%的高年级学生都在凯洛斯, which is a special “time out” in the busy part of life to explore one’s relationship with others and ultimately our creator God and His son, 耶稣.
这就是达米安的优势.
事实上, 由男生组成的校园有许多共同的优势, and 达明 proudly upholds these exceptionalities that make our school 社区 so much more than a “traditional school.“最终, 达米安是一个年轻人可以茁壮成长并发挥最佳领导力的地方, 学术, 精神潜能.

达米安校长博士. 梅里特海明威进行


 
母校
 
某个词,一个想法
总有一天会在内心激荡
我们会回忆那些夜晚 胜利
时光匆匆流逝.
我们将为你歌唱,我们的母校
当这样的时光过去;
给你带来我们荣耀的花环
我们说过或做过的事.
 
黑夜是我们的,战斗已经结束;
我们为我们的斯巴达人感到骄傲
留心我们的警告
我们会再回来的
"带着我们的盾牌还是在上面"是暗号
我们的斯巴达人.
所以你听到我们的警告就发抖
我们会再回来的.
