Dublin High is a great school to be apart of. There are over 100 student made clubs that are open to anyone and everyone. All the teachers at DHS go out of their way to make sure every student gets the help/attention they need. Recently, DHS opened a wellness center! It was designed by students at my school. You can go there when you are feeling stressed/overwhelmed or even if you're just having a bad day. There, they have counselors that are there between 7AM and 4:00PM EVERYDAY! Dublin high really values the mental and physical state of all their students.

Throughout my time at Dublin High, I had incredibly supportive, welcoming teachers that made the academic experience incredibly rewarding. Beyond the teachers, there were also a number of wonderful staff members whose support exceeded the level expected of them. The diversity at the school is amazing, as well as the extracurricular opportunities in regards to clubs, athletics, and other activities. My main complaints rest in how administration handles mental-health-related scenarios, as well as the overwhelming amount of pressure present within the student body. In that regard, the environment is incredibly toxic.
If you actually put in the work, Dublin High has the potential to be the epitome of that stereotypical memorable four years. It provides you with the ability to get involved in various activities, sports, clubs, and much more extracurriculars. The teachers are effective mentors and actually work to create bonds with students and ensure that they are learning. However, the school is not one hundred percent amazing. The administration is not effective in handling situations, the school has class sizes that are way too big, and certain programs are valued more than others when all should be valued equally. Some sports on campus get no assistance, arts are seen as less than athletics, and STEM is the dominating subject on campus with all the focus pointed there. Overall, Dublin High can be a great school with some tweaks to the way they handle things now.
