Dublin High School (DHS) was established several decades ago in 1968. Since then, the population of Dublin has been rapidly growing, particularly on the east side. This has forced the district to create several new elementary schools and middle schools to keep up with the growth in student population. This increase naturally correlates to an increased enrollment at the high school level. Enrollment was 2750 in the 2017-2018 school year, increasing from 2500 the previous year. This year the number of students has increased to almost 3000, with freshmen still the largest class. However, Dublin High School remains the only high school available to students.

There were several local residents concerned about the overcrowding and increase of traffic at DHS. Several parents have stressed the need for a second high school in Dublin. Following several years of hearings regarding opening a second high school and the dismissal of several potential sites, progress has been made. On July 17th, the school board held another public hearing to adopt the regulations outlined in Title V for selecting school sites.  

On the September 25th meeting, the board studied and analyzed a number of sites. A site between Dublin Boulevard and Central Parkway was selected as the final site.

The District has made an offer to purchase the property from its owner. They will conduct another hearing to update residents on the owner’s thoughts. According to a recent resolution, the owner appeared at the July meeting and did not object to the proposal but there is no record of an official statement. In light of this, the proposition has officially been passed and the site adopted by the Dublin Unified School District Board of Trustees as an eminent domain. With the location established, we are now one step closer to having a second high school.
