History

The school was founded in Fall River as Diman Vocational School in 1912 by Reverend John Diman, an Episcopal minister who had previously started Diman School for Boys (later renamed St. George's School) in Newport, Rhode Island.[10]

The Diman Regional Charter was established in 1963 to expand the area of the school's enrollment to include the surrounding towns of Somerset, Swansea and Westport, Massachusetts. The current campus on Stonehaven Road in Fall River opened in 1968.

Today Diman is known as one of the best vocational schools in the United States in addition to being designated as a “Compass School” by Governor Deval Patrick for its performance. Diman has earned a stellar reputation among other schools in the commonwealth for the quality of its training programs, sending large delegations of students to SkillsUSA competitions and having them return with medals in hand. .

Athletics

After an almost 30-year hiatus, Diman re-introduced Football to the school in 2005. Diman's athletic teams compete at the Division 3 level of MIAA athletics, and at Division 3 for football. They compete in the Mayflower League, which is the largest athletics conference in Massachusetts, with 18 schools.

In 2013, the Diman football team won the Mayflower League Championship for the first time in school history. In the process, they also qualified for the MIAA Division 6 State Playoffs. The Bengals won their first round match-up against Upper Cape, but eventually lost the following week to a powerful Millis/Hopedale cooperative team.

The member schools of the Mayflower League are as listed below.
