Two large fights at Mt. Diablo High School in Concord – Before School Starts

September 19, 2011 8:10 am · 62 comments

Administrators at Mt. Diablo High School in Concord have reported two large fights on their campus this morning, before school even started.

No major injuries have been reported, and the Concord Police are on scene.

Hate to say it.. but that sounds about right for Mt Diablo High School. So sad. Call me stuck up, but I would never send my kids to that school… EVER. Their safety means a lot to me and if they can’t be safe at school, then that school needs to re-evaluate what they are doing and what to change. I realize that it was before school hours. Perhaps they need police presence in the morning when kids are arriving for school.

What?!?! A fight at a high school?? There’s something new.

@MommatoTwo Don’t think that fights or other things don’t go on at your pretty little high school. Stop living under a damn rock, and get your head out of your a$$.

How bout changing the principal????

My daughter went to Mt. for 4 years & never did I feel her safety was at stake. Other than having a bad reputation the school is fine. Things happen at other schools in the district. You had a stabbing at College Park a couple years back & what about when the kids from Ygnacio Valley came to Mt. & beat up the kids over a football game. So all you people out thete who think Mt is such a bad school why not look at your own schools before talking crap about a perfectly good school.

When I was in high school, there was a fight at least three times a week. Usually they were off campus after school. There was little risk to those who were not fighting. I went to a wealthy highschool. Today’s kids are overprotected. A fight here and there builds character and proves to our young men that they can take care of themselves. Even if you lose, you learn a huge amount about yourself and your fear of being hit is greatly reduced. How much can you really know about yourself if you have never been in a fight?

6 Why are we assuming it was students fighting? September 19, 2011 at 8:45 AM

It could have been corpulent soccer moms, frustrated after a weekend stuck with their impotent spouses and ungrateful kids, venting their hostility over competition for mini-van parking with good cell reception..

7 anon September 19, 2011 at 8:49 AM

Now, that’s a school who could benefit by turning into a charter.

8 @ Chris September 19, 2011 at 9:01 AM

The problem is a lot bigger than the Principal at that school.

9 mt.diablo grad...... September 19, 2011 at 9:09 AM

I went to mount and never got into a fight! I love that school and it’s unfortunate that it has a bad reputation all because of fights!

10 Robert Paulson September 19, 2011 at 9:09 AM

And to think that kids weren’t overprotected as much in 1999 when that movie came out. Kids in my senior class were holding fight clubs every weekend before the school/police got involved.

“A fight here and there builds character and proves to our young men that they can take care of themselves. Even if you lose, you learn a huge amount about yourself and your fear of being hit is greatly reduced.” – I agree 100%.

Kids have been having fights in/out/before/after school for years. Since school and home are the two places kids are most every day of the year, of course that is where the fights will happen.

11 Charter School September 19, 2011 at 9:09 AM

Make it a charter school and all this would go away.

12 DBC September 19, 2011 at 9:13 AM

Fights happen, I hate it when the purest jump on Mt. D, my wife teaches there, and it’s her chose. She can work anywhere she wants, years ago she worked in Alamo and hated it. At Mt D. she feels she makes a difference, these kids need her and all of our support. Momma to two, people like you are part of the problem, you don’t want to get involved and you think your better than the students at Mt. D, good for you and I feel sorry for your children when they enter the real world without your “protection.”
Yes Mt. D has it problems, but it is a reflection of the society we live in. Some of the best people I’ve worked with over the years came out of this type of environment, I hate it when I have to work with these from Momma to two background, they don’t have a clue how to work in our global environment and how to accept all people around them, yet they will be the first to want to change everything around them, to make it better for them.

I went to Drake High in Marin, which has students from Fairfax and San Anselmo. It was probably 97% white with parents in the upper-middle to upper class demo. Nevertheless, we had fights every week or so, with an occasional “large fight” that would bring the cops over. I think it’s just something that happens when you throw a bunch of hormonal 14-18 year-olds together for 8 hours.

I wonder where MommatoTwo’s kids go to high school. My guess is they have fights there too. I don’t think my parents ever heard about a single one of those fights at Drake, even though I was in one or two of them myself.

14 V September 19, 2011 at 9:25 AM

A fight??? At Mt. Diablo High School??? say it isn’t so!!!!!!

That school has, at least as long as I can remember, had the reputation of being the worst school in the entire district. I hated going to sporting events on that campus.

unfortunately, any suggestions that I might make about the demographics of the students who attend that school may be taken as racist or even elitist comments, therefore I won’t say anything other than what I already have.

15 same as always September 19, 2011 at 9:25 AM

When I was in school there were alot of fights in school. So not sure what the big deal is. These days everything is a big deal, so maybe that’s what the big deal is. Another contributor is that there are too many electronic gadgets and the internet so people forget how to interact with one another face to face — it sort of de-humanizes everything.

16 Don't talk about it September 19, 2011 at 9:48 AM

Mr. Robert Paulson, may I remind you that you only have a name in death.

17 Antler September 19, 2011 at 9:51 AM

What were they fighting ABOUT?

Fight over a girl with friends backing up one another? Pretty normal if no weapons were in the mix.

Fight gang-related at its root? Needs police presence and drastic measures to stop this from continuing to tear up the reputation of, not only Mt. Diablo High School, but of Concord itself.

18 Jim September 19, 2011 at 9:53 AM

I agree with same as always…I graduated in 81 and even when I was in school you didn’t go to a football game there UNLESS there were at least 3 of you…never go alone

So for those who graduated and loved it….I applaud you… because even 30 years later the school is still known as the worst place to go.

I thought this ghetto thug school was going to be shut down…

if that isn’t the case, it should anyways.

Since Pittsburg has a new high school, make the students of 94565 zip code attend school in Pittsburg.

22 Joe September 19, 2011 at 10:22 AM

Anon. it’s not a boxing match where there is a ref to break it up or you can quit. They will beat you till you’re unconscious and then stomp you into the ground. I’m a paramedic and i’ve seen it to many times.

That reply is hilarious!!!


24 WC Parent September 19, 2011 at 10:27 AM

Another feather in the cap for Northgate High School. The school has been fight free since my children began going (This also serves as another reminder to the admin to keep the school Walnut Creek only)

25 Anon September 19, 2011 at 11:20 AM

WC Parent, you’re kidding right? Unless you’re an admin there you have no idea! Even when fights have been posted here on Claycord about my child’s school, she didn’t know anything about it! Schools with 1500-2000 kids, not all kids see everything so if you’re relying solely on your kids report, you are probably not getting the full picture.

26 Rob September 19, 2011 at 11:23 AM

The local high school where I live hasn’t seen fights – of course over 92% of the students go to college after graduation so they don’t have a lot of time for fights – instead they are getting ready to increase their already very high test scores to get into the best Universities rather than wasting time on fighting.

27 Get a lyfe September 19, 2011 at 11:51 AM

You guys kill me here! Rotflmfao!!! # 21 lol why are you scared of pittsburg?

28 Shak Li Batahat September 19, 2011 at 12:05 PM

Where there are teenagers there will be battles. Goes with the emerging hormones. But with Mt D you also have an incredibly poor school management system coupled with typical socialistic parenting where the parents allow the school to raise their children. And along with the popularity and acceptance of a gang and drug culture, you have the perfect ingredients for a horrible place to learn anything and a dangerous place to be if you want to live past 19.

29 anon September 19, 2011 at 12:29 PM

At that time of the morning, there aren’t any Administrators at school. There are at least 5 buses of students getting dropped off from Baypoint at 7:10AM without supervision on campus.

30 On deaf ears September 19, 2011 at 12:32 PM

#27, No. I live in the Pitt. I’m just tired of dealing with the Gridlock of cars on hwy 4 and all side streets in Pitt.
The kids need to go to school in their own city.
So much for the Spare the Air days :( Typical doublespeak from government bureaucrats.

31 @WC Parent #24 September 19, 2011 at 12:41 PM

I work at a high school in the district – not Mount – but a high school nonetheless. Just because you haven’t heard of a fight since your children started going to Northgate doesn’t mean one hasn’t happened. Do you think the administration wants to tell parents every time there is a fight? Teachers at my school don’t even know when a fight occurs unless they break it up or the students mention it in class.

I bet you think there are no drugs on Northgate’s campus either. Check your medicine cabinet. There’s a good chance your Ambien and Oxycontin prescriptions are running a little low…

32 Anon94521 September 19, 2011 at 12:43 PM

Fights are always going to happen. The issue is how fights are conducted now. Most kids have no honor anymore. Fights at one time where 1 on 1 until someone was was knocked down or gave in. Everyone walked away and for the most part the was the end of it.
Now you see 7 on 1 or more beat downs by pack animals that won’t stop until they are stopped. Kicking and stomping people while they are down! Time to skip calling the police and call animal control.

33 BagsFlyFree September 19, 2011 at 1:14 PM

@ 30. I think this is a topic that should be looked into further.. I wonder what the statistics show for violence in schools who have this same service (allowing out of city students) vs schools that dont. Its unfortunate Claycord borders cities that struggle with violence and lack of vision to create jobs and other local employment (and cant afford to school their citizens!).

34 anonymous here September 19, 2011 at 1:17 PM

A lot of people here are saying.. fights are no big deal. Maybe back in the 90’s and 80’s. But now a lot of kids carry weapons. Also a lot of kids today don’t believe in fair fights, one on one. Their friends are all hanging around waiting to be able to jump in too. Seen it happen. Can be scary stuff. Has nothing to do with where it was at. It is happening everywhere nowadays.

35 Randome Task September 19, 2011 at 1:19 PM

So the parents of these kids are they to blame somewhat. I was taught defense is the best offense and certainly your a coward if you gang up on someone fights will happen beacuse parents don’t talk to their children and let them know how it is everyday….these kids think this is it…. this is their life their rep their everything…they have no idea how stupid it s they have no idea that if they don’t get a good education they might be living under a over pass or in a cell. should gt them all to gether and tell them how it is and that when high school is done guess what no one cares anymore …no one will care if u had a big zit on yur nose or if u did something that people laughed at …it is a place to learn and you move on give it to em straight there are no jobs out there and goodluck getting a house any time soon like 20 more years or show them the homeless and let them see who has it worse. They fight and cause problems because they feel they have to survive … them that they better enjoy the young years because sooner or later they will be on their own and have no recolection of highschool and representing what ever ……

37 slagheap September 19, 2011 at 1:28 PM

those of you condoning or rationalizing violence ( ” fights ” ) at school must be idiots. there were a few fights at my intermediate & high schools, sure, and it was always the same type of persons involved: illiterate fools with illiterate fool parents – so i guess y’all will just keep the chain unbroken.

38 anon September 19, 2011 at 1:54 PM

Ages ago when I attended AHS (Antioch High School), We were “lucky” enough to receive the problem students from pittsburg. They would come from Pittsburg and bully the students at Antioch, even though they were not tough enough to handle Pittsburg, they sure loved making life h3ll for Antioch students.
PS – This was before the section 8 / Hillcrest ave runaway growth explosion. I don’t even recognize that city and I hate going over there.

39 Anon2you September 19, 2011 at 2:13 PM

This story is completely wrong!!!

With all the budget cutback this was actually Zero period PE Class, Boxing 101. They just couldn’t afford to use the Gym, or hire a teacher or provide boxing equipment, so what are the kids supposed to do?

Support your local “Charter School Ammendments”

40 Horse'n Around September 19, 2011 at 2:28 PM

I went to Mt. Diablo in the mid 80’s. We didn’t have these fights all the time. And it wasn’t looked upon as just another day at Mt. Diablo. I feel bad that kids now adays and parents think that this is normal. I have kids now, and I have chosen to put my kids in private school. I know that alot of people can’t afford it and I’m not putting blame on them. But this is why we have chosen a private school. Very, small class room sizes and everyone knows each other and their parents. If my child has a problem with another student, we try and talk to the parents. I really miss the old days where all the parents new each other and could spank or discipline each others kid/kids for acting out!

41 @charter school September 19, 2011 at 2:34 PM

Sure, turn it into a charter school. Then the students who get into fights will be kicked out – because charter schools can do that – and sent to other schools in the district – Concord High, Ygnacio Valley HS, College Park. Doesn’t solve anything, but Mt. D. will look like a better school. Great plan!

42 Laurie September 19, 2011 at 4:45 PM

They do have a pretty bad reputation no one to blame but themselves. Last year when CP played Mount at their field CP won the game, as our kids and parents were leaving, the Mount PARENTS yes PARENTS threw water on us and made rude comments as we walked out. We were all mature enough to keep on walking and let them pout by themselves over losing the game. I guess my point is; the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. All schools have good and bad kids but Mount has earned it’s reputation in my book.

43 anon September 19, 2011 at 5:37 PM

Are you saying that azzwhole parents beget azzwhole kiddies?
But hey, the schools all need to keep being pimped by the NFL, NBA and MLB because all the narcissistic parents are hoping one of their little bastards will be a star so they can go assault a girl at a bar, fight dogs, shoot their chauffeur and get away with it.

44 Jesse Pinkish September 19, 2011 at 6:18 PM

Maybe this is the same group of kids who are always in fights – These “illiterate fools with illiterate fool parents” as you put it continue these patterns most of their lives. Why couldn’t it be the same idiot children who got into fights as last year?

45 Kirk September 19, 2011 at 6:25 PM

I understand the fighting thing, but saying it isn’t a big deal just doesn’t fly anymore. Fighting teaches you how to be efficient with your violence not how to think through your actions.

Good luck getting into a good college with an assault on your record. They don’t want crazies.

I was involved in an altercation at work once, being “the man” and showed him what was what and all. Very expensive, and still causes problems.
If your kid cannot rationalize that fighting is bad at 17 he won’t at 18 either. Then he can get his very own permanent record. Just like mine.

Being proud about your kid fighting? Be proud that he has read a book.

46 alibgee September 19, 2011 at 6:42 PM

seriously this is RIDICULOUS. i went to mt.d two years ago and graduated. sure there were fights and police had to be involved doesnt mean squat to me though. all these other schools like cp, northgate, concord, etc dont have teachers and academies that teach your children great lessons. all you see and hear of is the bad. what about the good? i was fortunate to go to mt.d and to be in an academy at that school. yes, there were problems and i agree it has a bad reputation but people do care at that school. its not the school. its the students that make it look bad. i came from bay point everyday and i know plenty others that did as well and no, we were and still arent the damn problem. just because some students want to be idiots, doesnt mean all are. also, @mothertotwo, i feel sorry for your children. mount diablo is a great school with great caring teachers. not many people can say they go to a school where teachers go out of their way to make sure you succeed and that your doing your best, but, i can say that. thanks mount for making me the wonderful person i am today and to all of you “haters”.. good luck in life and i hope your children dont grow up to be like you :)

WC Parent September 19, 2011 at 10:27 am —

You’re kidding right? No fights at Northgate? Really!!

Did you not hear about the little ruckus at the traffic circle last semester? You know, the one where an ambulance had to be called. The one where one of the participant’s mother stormed into principal McMorris’ office demanding disciplinary action and threatening legal action against the school and/or mdusd. (funny thing is, by all accounts I’ve heard, it was her son who instigated the fight). Surely, you must’ve remembered that one. Or any number of other fights that occurs during the school year.

Funny thing about Northgate is that it is a school with a lot “wanna be” tough guys trying to make trouble. Of course, if they ever met up with “real” tough guys, like say from MtD, it would not be pretty.

48 @ANON September 19, 2011 at 6:56 PM

Your touch with reality is quite outdated. Get in your horse and buggy and return to the 19th century. I’m surprised you don’t still use morse code instead of a computer. But you’re probably still using WINDOWS 3.1 Back in the day or when I was a growing up doesn’t fly anymore. It sounds like you would prefer medieval combat with death to the finish. Return to the happy times and stay there please or stop making dumb a$$ remarks.

49 Kirk September 19, 2011 at 8:33 PM

One last word.

My friend taught his son how to fight. Pa is a 275# wreaking machine who has spent a lot of time in full contact fighting before it became popular. His son is 8 years old, and about 75#.

Son has had to change schools twice in two years for fighting. First time three kids pushed him down on the playground and he gave the leader a spinning backfist to the jaw. It landed with great effect. He defended himself in a 3 on 1 but the school didn’t want him anymore and the bullies parents tried to sue.

Son has realized he can trash kids 3-4 years older and bigger than him. It may end up getting him stabbed or shot. Meantime his mother is going gray. Pa thinks its funny.

51 Anon September 19, 2011 at 10:03 PM

I would say a fight between two people would not be that alarming if it were twenty years ago. We now live in the day and age where just by looking at someone the wrong way could get you shot. Kids today not just one race but all kid think they are entitled to anything they want and don’t put much value on any life including their own

52 hmmmm September 19, 2011 at 11:25 PM

NO school is bad. You go there to get an education. My uncle went there and hes a general manager in one of the Marriotts in the area and their were a lot of fights as well, I mean what school doesnt right? Its like sayin ill never run into a human being….yes, I know, stupid right? and why do we have these types of fights in this area? Obvious, the environment the kids grew up. AND im not talking about race ok so dont jump on my back on that. We just have some stupid parents with twisted ways to educate their kids. Kids will ALWAYS reflect their family background and where they grew up. Parents have to take the initiative and get involved with the school so their kid could start building some god dam brain muscle into their brain. Obviously its not the kids fault, wish parents started to educate their kids but who am I to say that right?
For all we know these kids may not even have parents and might be acting the way they do. Its sad really. Wish that we could somehow help that part of the community. You might ask me, well what the hell have you done to the community to help huh pal? Well I actually use to be a student council in one of the high schools and as part of my job I was to help students from getting into serious trouble and come up with a solution and from my experience and observation has lead me to believe their is a bigger problem at home that is making them behave this way. As I was reading down the list im just glad some people notice the issue. Well take care people of concord. Peace.

53 Concernicus September 20, 2011 at 12:47 AM

@1: you are stuck up. and not every kid who goes there is out to be a little shithead.

i went there for a while, and the majority of kids dont actually behave that way. most of the new ones, after a while and the constant troublemakers became something of an everyday thing, lost their desire to see violence or participate in it. the “true” delinquents are the ones who keep going back for a throw-down, and most of the other kids just ignore it.

i even remember at least 3 fights that fellow students themselves broke up before the teachers could even waddle their apathetic asses to the ring. if you just leave them alone and let them resolve it themselves, they might learn from it. (granted, it does depend a fair bit on what’s involved–you wouldnt want a knife fight or gun fight to go unchecked, but all of the fights i heard of/saw were fist fights.)

54 Concernicus September 20, 2011 at 12:53 AM

and i might add that while fights occur at ALL schools, the biggest difference in reaction i saw was at Mt D. Mt D students dont flock from buildings ACROSS CAMPUS to see the fight. at most, a dozen or so will linger around the combatants.

at “clean” or “good” schools like CHS or even el dorado middle, people from all over the school would rush to see the fight. this means that the teachers had to fight more eager spectators (read: SADISTS) to reach the fighters and break it up.
if you ask me, the fights at Mt D get resolved much quicker because they dont have so many rubbernecking goons surrounding the kids involved.

55 MDHS80 September 20, 2011 at 3:16 AM

When I went to to Diablo ’76-’80 and there were fights at least once a week and guess what, they were LARGE fights and usually happened at brunch or lunch time.

@Jim, class of ’81, yes, I remember the fights that would happen at the football games especially when we played Concord High and all the strong police presence surrounding the football field.

Fights happen and yes even back then and further back, knives were involved, and I wouldn’t doubt if there was a gun involved too. Not every student that attends Diablo is ‘no good’. Any school has it’s good, bad, and evil.

@WCParent… you are definitely blind

56 Grad student September 20, 2011 at 5:28 AM

I remember back in high school ( I went to CHS) and a HUGE amount of the fights on my school were from Mt diablo students. CHS and Mt D. have been rivals for years… One fight in particular was when a few students ( male and female) came to the school and one of the men from mt d stabbed a girl from chs and all hell broke loose. I dont think its the schools problem, I think its the school district and not being able to afford school supplies but they can build solar pannels and what not? Come on… whats more important? Education or trying to make the school look nicer? Think about it!

57 Anonymous September 20, 2011 at 7:28 AM

I vote for changing the Principal!

I happen to know for a fact that Principal is not discipling the students. Apparently she does not believe in suspending these kids and tells the teacher to work it out. These kids need boundaries! For the safety of our kids and out teachers.
Yes I get that out teens have raging hormones and they will get in fights but if the Principal were to discipline a bit more or even harder consequences maybe it would happen less. I don’t know just saying. Maybe it’s worth looking into.

58 @ ignorant ANON September 20, 2011 at 8:05 AM

Your quotes below;

“How much can you really know about yourself if you have never been in a fight”?

“A fight here and there builds character and proves to our young men that they can take care of themselves.”

The problem is kids/people don’t know how to fight in today’s world. It’s all about putting an unconscious beat down on the other person fueled by cage fighting to submission or pound and ground idiots. If you’re a gutless lowlife you pull out a gun and run away like a p_$$_.

I cant believe that you would be so ignorant in saying a “fighting builds character.” That’s exactly why the young are in the mess they are today and society is in the crapper. “If I intimidate someone I get respect”, If I kick their ass I get MORE respect. This transitions into personal life and the girlfriend or spouse gets a face-full of fist because she said “get it yourself.” Do you watch the headlines at all?? Have you noticed an increase of fights breaking out lately? I’m sure Brian Stow’s family is disappointed in his character because he did not learn to fight as a young man? Brian Stow has more character in a single eyelash than you do Anon.

59 Charles-the-cat September 20, 2011 at 8:40 AM

Fights between teenagers have been happening since before we were mammals. Gotta accept that and deal with it. If I ran the world…or just the school district…here’s how it would go:
1. Charter schools are responsible for their own discipline. If they expel a student and that student, by law, has to come back to our district schools, the charter school will pay us SUBSTANTIAL compensation. Enough to cover any special educational needs and security costs that could be incurred.
2. Any student found to have instigated a fight who is an INTERdistrict transfer will be expelled from our district immediately.
3. Any student found to have instigated a fight who is an INTRAdistrict transfer will be transferred to their ‘home’ school immediately (if space allows).
4. All drug and fight related discipline will be communicated to all district parents via email (with names redacted).

Basically, the idea behind these suggestions is that district policy has to make it transparent which schools are truly having discipline problems. It’s too easy to shuffle the problem kids from one place to another right now.

60 CJK September 20, 2011 at 11:44 AM

There are so many more problems that what is being touched on. I have been teaching at Mt. for almost 9 years, I’ve just about seen it all, including being on lock down a few times. I am also a mother of several children that do not have the bahavior problems that I have seen in most children there age.
# 1 I know how to say NO, My job is not to be a buddy to my kids, it’s to raise them to be respectable adults.
# 2 When I say NO, I mean NO and they know it.
#3 From a young age, when it is needed, I do spank my kids, NOT beat!
#4 I Love and respect my kids and they know it, I am in their corner.
#5 My kids know they need to take responsability for their actions.
#6 There parents are AFRAID of correcting their kids for many reason, but if these kids had be told No once in a while, and popped on their fanny’s once in a while they may not be the way they are.
Come on people, as much as parents need to do their jobs society tells parents not to correct b/c you might hurt their little feelings, but then bash the parents for not having well behaved kids. Then, Teachers or other people are afraid to say something b/c they might piss the kids off and offend someone. The kids I teach know I mean business, I don’t take any crap, I want them to be productive, respectful people in society and a a member of society I have no problem in telling ANY kid to knock it off or to tell a parent to step it up and get some control of their little brats. I do not care what they have to say in return. I have a responsability in the classroom, as a parent and as a member of society to speak up. Everyone is alway afraid to say something b/c someone will be offended. With friends and family in law enforcement they will tell you that a lot of inmates will tell you that is they were correct and even spanked by a parent who care they probably woulden’t be behind bars today. Do not place blame on any one person, we all need to be our part what ever roll you play on a childs life!

@ # 24 WC Parent– NEWSFLASH LADY!! Concord kids fom the Crossings etc are also in your population of fight free little angels. Please pull the feather that is obviously stuck in your ear pertruding to the brain OUT! And humble yourself a little bit.

I saw things get bad in the 4 years I was there. My freshman year we lost the counselors, which I think was the beginning of the end. The year I graduated or the one after was when the little gang bangers (Nortenios I think, or Sorenios… Same difference) started jumping any ‘non-gang banger’ and his buddies. I know this because my little brother was one of them. They were never punished and I got the feeling Mr Suarez was either afraid of them or most likely sympathized with them for whatever reason. These loosers aren’t dealt with properly and ruin it for all the good kids. We need to get a principal who walks around with a bat, an enforcer and not some lame ass. And don’t get me started on how the classes are dummed down just to get these loosers to pass and graduate. I felt totally cheated by MD when I went to college… Because there was no focus on preparing kids for it.
