Summary: Academics at Dublin School are engaging, relevant, and rigorous. Academic work here aims to prepare students for college, and for the journey of building rich and positive lives. Our academic program grows from the legacy of Paul Lehmann, and his emphasis on hard work and high standards, and the values of progressive education in the midst of a small New England village, surrounded by the beauty of the forests, Mount Monadnock, and Dublin Lake. Education here is based on Dublin’s early belief in involving every student in taking responsibility and caring for the school, the town, and the larger community, and for the natural world. Dublin’s commitment to incorporating many kinds of people and learners, to creating many kinds of learning experiences, and to the growth of healthy adolescents, all derive from this legacy. Our academic program invites students to read ever more deeply, to write and speak with increasing effectiveness, to solve problems creatively and efficiently, to explore scientific fields, to learn languages, and to draw, to make music, and to be moved by works of beauty. Students leave Dublin School as strong individuals who are ready to participate in the globalizing society of the 21st century.
