School Reviews

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.
