Dublin Jerome High School In The Know

Advanced Placement Exams:

We offer several Advanced Placement (AP) courses at Dublin Jerome High School. These courses are designed to provide a rigorous academic experience and mirror the experience of students from other high schools taking the same AP classes. Generally speaking, most students attempt an AP class for the first time during their 10th or 11th grade years. Last year, we had 677 students take one or more AP classes. If a student chooses (and most do) he/she can take the AP exam at the end of the course and potentially earn college credit.

Broadcast Video:

If students are interested in being on TV or producing TV programs, we have a few courses for students to gain exposure in this area. Broadcast Video I is designed as an introductory course and Broadcast Video II creates our morning announcements which are broadcasted live from our own Studio 112 each day. Students are welcome to take Broadcast Video I at any point during their high school career and can then continue on to Broadcast Video II. The second level of Broadcast Video is generally taken during junior or senior year and is a two period block course.

Ohio Law requires all 2017-2018 Seniors be immunized against Meningitis to attend school next year. The requirements are as follows per the Ohio Department of Health:

Two (2) doses of MCV4 (also known as Menactra, Menomune, or Menveo) vaccine must be administered prior to entry, and the second dose must be given on or after the 16th birthday.


1. If the first (1st) dose of MCV4 was administered on or after the 16th birthday, a second (2nd) dose is not required.

2. If a pupil is in 12th grade and is 15 years of age or younger, only 1 dose is required.

If you haven't already done so, please check your student's immunization record. If there is no evidence of the meningitis vaccine after your child’s 16th birthday, please call your physician or health department for an appointment. Please provide the clinic with a copy of the completed shot record ASAP! Contact your school clinic with any questions. Thank you!
