2006年,博士. 伦纳德·萨克斯写了一本名为《在线博彩平台》的书,他在书中提出了一个担忧,即越来越多的男孩在传统学校里表现不出色,而且还被诊断患有注意力缺陷多动障碍(ADHD).

当博士. 萨克斯将这种成绩下降与关于青春期男孩学习过程的最新医学/大脑研究进行了比较, Dr. Sax concluded that current traditional schools are designed to favor the learning potential of girls. 因此,博士. Sax also concluded that boys are best served by a different learning environment, 尤其是单性别学校, which can amount to increased levels of 学术 success for boys. 看到博士. 萨克斯对单一性别公共教育的研究:

In the summer of 2013, 达明’s 教师 Supervisor, Chris Douglas, and Principal Dr. 梅里特·海明威参加了国际男校联盟(IBSC)会议,在会上他们听取了来自世界各地关于成功的全男生教育的最新研究.

在2014年的夏天, 另外六名达米安学院的教师参加了IBSC会议,并带回了大量关于改善男孩学习的想法. These ideas have subsequently been shared with all 达明 teachers. 这包括最近为遭受脑震荡的学生实施的“回归学习”协议. 许多教职员工也阅读了Michael Reichert和Richard Hawley所著的《澳门博彩在线》一书,并对其进行了报道, 哪一点强调了教师需要关注帮助男孩成为成功学习者的关系动态.

At the International Boys School Coalition Conference on all-boys education, attendees also learned that boys love to move around, 竞争, 利用科技, and to exercise a level of control over their environment.
达米安教育的优势
这些研究概念中的许多都是在达米安高中已经使用多年的学习模式. 事实上, 作为一所单性别学校,我们的一大优势是我们可以努力加强这种模式,以确保达米安的年轻人茁壮成长并取得成功.

当我们在全校范围内应用这些原则时, we seek to create a more favorable learning environment for young males. 想想达米恩的新工程教室. There is plenty of room to move about as students engage in a day’s lesson. Sit in a one of the new classroom chairs and you’ll notice that it moves with you!

最后, 你会注意到,传统的课桌已经被特别设计的桌子所取代,以适应灵活的教室设计. 而我们的工程类目前集中体现了我们的承诺,为年轻人量身定制的教育经验, 我们已经开始计划重新设计我们所有的教室,考虑到年轻人的学习需要.
这就是达米安的优势.
Our tri-school association with Pomona Catholic and St. Lucy's certainly allows for plenty of interaction with young ladies, but this interaction does not take place from 7:45-2:55 pm, 哪段时间是专门用来学习的. 对于达米安的学生来说,这意味着他们与他们竞争成绩的学生是他们的同龄人. By the time of graduation they are not merely peers, but brothers.
这就是达米安的优势.
Our unique House system supports this brotherhood among grades 9 through 12. Each House is comprised of students from each grade level, which increases the level of camaraderie among the student body. 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, or seniors (a distinction that often emphasizes student division as opposed to unity). 学生们自己也决定每年的学院比赛(过去的比赛包括智力竞赛碗), 音乐碗, 室外地滚球戏球, 去踢球, 3-on-3篮球, 极限飞盘, flag-football and of course the Spartan Olympics which takes place in May). 大一新生还与一位大哥配对,这位大哥在达米安大学的第一年指导和指导他们.
这就是达米安的优势.
We are also blessed with outstanding on-campus athletic facilities. As noted by the San Gabriel Valley Tribune last year, 达明 HS maintains the #1 athletic facilities in the valley. This certainly makes for a great environment for athletic competition, 而且学生们不需要长途跋涉去练习.
这就是达米安的优势.
当然,达米安还有The PIT(《澳门博彩在线》也提到它是山谷里最顶尖的啦啦队之一),女孩们来这里和男孩们一起欢呼. Participation in The Pit is unique and vibrant aspect of the campus life.
这就是达米安的优势.
还要考虑入学荣誉奖学金获得者的历史,以及达米安大学的AP学者. 我们提供优秀奖学金(入学荣誉)给在分班考试中得分达到或超过90百分位的学生. Currently, 184 students (almost 20% of the 达明 student body) receive this award. This makes for a very competitive learning environment. This also explains why of the 212 graduates from the class of 2014, 122 of them were AP Scholars of some degree including 75 AP Scholars, 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, 他写了一本名为《澳门博彩在线》的自传(可以在亚马逊上买到),在这本自传中,他提到了自己在达米安大学读书时的许多难忘经历. 不足为奇的是, 他强调了什么是达米安的历史标志,那就是参与基督教服务的机会. 事实上, 我们为我们的服务历史感到自豪, which so often fosters among our students a lifelong commitment to serve our greater communities.
这就是达米安的优势.
Lastly, our campus ministry programs are an essential component of the 达明 experience. This includes the opportunity to participate in student 撤退, 从大一开始,一直持续到大二,都有一天的校内静修活动. 作为初中, students have the opportunity to participate in an Emmaus retreat, 在校外举办两天. 最后, the culmination of this retreat experience is the four-day Kairos Retreat, which seniors often describe as the highlight of their four years at 达明. Traditionally 95% of the all senior classes attend Kairos, 在忙碌的生活中,这是一个特殊的“休息时间”,用来探索与他人的关系,最终是与我们的创造者上帝和他的儿子的关系, 耶稣.
这就是达米安的优势.
事实上, there are many advantages shared on a campus consisting of all male students, 达米安自豪地坚持这些独特之处,使我们的学校社区远远超过“传统学校”.“最终, 达明 is a place where a young man can thrive and fulfill their best leadership, 学术, 精神潜能.

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.
