School Notes

  • Located in rural southwestern New Hampshire, Dublin School is a deliberately small, nondenominational, independent college preparatory school for grades 9-12. Diversity is infused in all community experiences at Dublin School because of our size and student population. Dublin School students actively participated in all aspects of school life, as we believe thatlearning takes place both inside and outside of the classroom. Students and faculty work together to create a school culture that enables individuals to be their authentic self, encourages students to seek out new experiences, supports healthy risk-taking, promotes equity and inclusion, and creates time for play. Every academic day begins with Morning Meeting, which brings the entire community together for formal and spontaneous presentations and announcements, guestspeakers, and Senior Presentations.Students have daily work jobs and weekend Work Gang, small group projects such as trail maintenance, wood splitting, or maple sugaring, to help maintain our physical campus and foster an ethic of meaningful work within our school. Students must engage in afternoon athletics or activities each trimester and join at least one competitive team each year.
  • We instill the values of discipline and meaningful work that are necessary for the good of self and community.We respect the individual learning style and unique potential each student brings to our school.With our guidance, Dublin students become men and women who seek truth and act with courage.As members of a residential community where students and adults live and work together, we strive daily to find the balance between individual freedom and community standards and expectations.Each of us at Dublin School is expected to be concerned with the well-being of others and with the quality of life here on campus.We learn to treat each person as an individual of particular worth, and while achieving independence, we learn the value of independence in a community.Our motto is, "Truth and Courage". We expect of ourselves the courage to be truthful, to deal with one another with honesty and mutual respect, and to embrace diversity of all kinds with compassion and understanding.

Dublin School provided the most nurturing, challenging, and accepting environment for me during critical years of development. During my four years at Dublin, I was pushed academically, athletically, artistically, and socially, while being acknowledged and respected for who I was. The entire community is incredibly welcoming. My strengths were built upon, and my weaknesses were met and addressed in a way that prepared me for the upcoming chapters of my life. In my opinion, the strongest attribute of the school is its size. I knew everyone on campus and the intimate classes allowed for impactful conversations, yet it was large enough to establish friendships with people to that I could relate on deeper levels. My Dublin friends are still my best friends, and I graduated over 14 years ago. Dublin is such a special place, and I am so grateful for the time I was able to spend there!

I could not be more pleased with Dublin School for my daughter. When searching for a school, my wife and I wanted a high quality academic program and strong community. We are getting both at Dublin. My daughter is a strong student who is both challenged and motivated by the academic program. She also feels at home in a deliberately strong and diverse community. Dublin works extremely hard to create an atmosphere where students are individually recognized and supported, but also strongly encouraged to try new activities, think differently, and discover themselves. It is a perfect fit for my daughter and our family. It will be our top choice for our younger daughter.
