Posted May 19, 2005

The quality of Academic programs is extremely high, especially in English and History, as well as Music and Arts. Very small teacher/Student-ratio (about 1:5) makes the classes very small (some classes under 5 students) that gives great opportunities to students with academic difficulties to the same degree as students who are way better than the average. The campus is beautiful and the atmosphere amongt the students is very social. Dishonesty and Harassment are prosecuted strictly which creates a very climate of security. The school is like a big family. There has been some improvement in the faculty such as a new Dean of Students. Awesome school!

This is a wonderful school with beautiful facilities. Students must be willing to work hard. The wonderful staff will help students become the best they can be- and then some. Great curriculum coordinates History and English classes. Creative arts and music are super.

well as it goes Dublin was the best 2 years of my life, and the worst half a year of my life. The teachers are wonderful. The classes are fun and require thinking. The headmaster and dean of students are less then caring people.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
