Great School! There is a lot of after school activities that build friendship bonds and creates new ones outside of the school walls such as Rollerskating, movie night, and field trips. Heavy parent involvement combined with caring staff make this a top notch school. Thumbs up!
The school's teachers are top notch, the principal on thr other hand, should not be in an elementary school. He us very vocal about not liking parents and does everything to limit the ability for parents being involved. If there us an activity that he has not yet cancelled, itis scheduled at the most inconvenient times for working parents to attend. This you see, limits the number of parents who will be present. When he came to our building two years ago we were told our traditions would not change but little by little Dublin is becoming a new school, in a negative way. The principal says we are a community yet the irony is, thr last time Dublin was truly a community was when the old principal was forced to retire so the current principal was not displaced when his former building closed. It's time for a new leader at Dublin!
Have been in this school for 3 children. The school encourages parental involvement both in and out of the classroom. My children have excelled, maintaining above-average on bench-assessments and MEAP testing. Staff is excellent. Highly recommend.
The staff is fabulous, principal is always beaming, everyone is so pleasant. The school feels like schools used to feel when I was a kid, not so institutionalized. Younger staff means that they are not bitter and burned out. I love this school and so do my boys!
