An Insiders View of Dublin School

As the past admission director at Dublin School, a co-ed small boarding school in Dublin, NH, I’m now forced to look differently at the school- with consultant’s eye. I now have to think about Dublin using a consultant’s critique:

“Does the school do what it says it does; what kind of students will do well here; and are Dublin’s students healthy and pleased with their work; is the school healthy; how are the faculty; is the school vibrant?”

I’m happy to say Dublin does make a difference. The school has a great sense of community; students and faculty have a special closeness that comes with small school environment. All students enjoy success in some significant way be it through their academics, visual and performing arts, athletics. The school brings the appropriate level of challenge to each student. Everyone has a voice on this campus.

Brad Bates, the new Head of School, is the perfect Headmaster with his leadership and direction. I would not think twice about sending a student or a family to visit Dublin School. It is not only safe, but probably the most caring small boarding school community in the northeast. Visit the school’s website to learn more.
