Dublin Unified School District Reviews
Your experience definitely depends on which side of town you live on. The East side of the school district is more competitive and focused on academics than the West side of town. As of right now, all schools feed into Dublin High School. Again, your experience changes depending on the types of classes you take. People who take AP classes experience intense competition and the environment can often be toxic. There have been major instances of cheating in the past. However, if students take a good balance of AP, honors, and regular courses, it is possible to receive a well rounded education. Recently, STEM education has increased in all levels of education due to higher demand. The arts are still somewhat neglected but the music program and visual arts programs are also rapidly improving.
I'm not going to say that Dublin has the best school district. In fact, it is far from perfect; however, it does have many elements to it that sets it apart from other districts, in both good and bad ways. The fundamental problem in the Dublin Unified School District is the fact that we have only 1 high school. Overcrowding is real and the school body has increased dramatically since I was a freshman. Now boasting over 3,200 students, it is a miracle to me that they still have not increased the duration of passing periods since it takes twice the time to get down the stairs alone. In spite of this, however, our school offers wonderful STEM, culinary, and art/video game design programs. I followed the medicine path by taking PLTW courses in the Biomedical Academy, which was a wonderful experience that helped me solidify my career path. All in all, Dublin has (mostly) good teachers and great programs, though it is getting quite crowded and competitive.
The Dublin Unified School District is a very good place to send your children, as there are many opportunities for kids to succeed in multiple fields such as engineering, BioMed, all forms of the Performing Arts, athletics, and other forms of academia. What I would disapprove of the Dublin Unified School District is how they don’t cooperate with the City of Dublin’s ultra fast growing infrastructure to compensate for the number of houses with the creation of more schools.
