About Dublin City Schools

The Dublin City School District consists of 47 square miles and parts of Columbus, Hilliard, Upper Arlington, Delaware County, and Union County. Contrary to a popular notion, the boundaries of the Dublin School district extend far outside the city of Dublin. In fact, more than 40% of our students live outside the city of Dublin.

The district remains committed to the dual goals of excellence and equity.
