Dublin High School 2010 API Jumps to 868, District Jumps to 878

September 13, 2010

Dublin High School’s API jumped again in 2010 to 868, a 26-point increase over 2009 and a 70-point increase over 2008.  Along with Dublin High’s academic improvement has come recognition including recently raising Dublin High’s rating to a 10 out of 10 (from a 9 out of 10).  Earlier this year, Newsweek included Dublin High School in its list of America’s Best High Schools.

Schools across the Dublin Unified School District improved resulting in the overall District API improving to 878 (a 24-point increase over 2009).  Wells Middle School’s API had the largest gain of 49-points to 838 (from 789), followed by Murray Elementary School’s API which rose 34 points to 870.  Almost every school in the District achieved its highest API ever.  Dublin Elementary, Fallon, Green Elementary and Frederiksen Elementary all improved.  Dougherty Elementary slipped slightly to 939, still holding the highest API in the District.  A detailed breakdown of API results is available here.

The large increases were due in part to dramatic increases among significant sub-groups including African-American (19-point increase), Latino (21-point increase) and Socioeconomically Disadvantaged (37-point increase).  According to Dublin Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Stephen Hanke, “Our commitment is to see that every Dublin student is proficient or advanced on all California Standards Tests and meets our new enhanced graduation requirements.”  As part of the effort to continuing raising standards, Dublin High School, supported by parents and the community, introduced the Dublin High Advanced Scholar Diploma last year.

Full details of the 2010 API results for each school including 2010 STAR / CST and CHSEE test results that are used in calculating API scores are available here.

    I just took a look at the newly released API Scores and I can’t wait to hear Ms Shimizu speak Thursday Evening at Back to School Night at Dublin High! Congratulations to the ENTIRE Dublin High Community and especially to the amazing teachers and staff. Our children are blessed to have them working with them at this wonderful school of ours.

    In taking just a quick look at our Neighboring Schools, I think we should all be extremely proud of where Dublin High stands, not just by assessing its overall performance, but by looking at the strong and solid gains made across our ENTIRE student population (subgroups). Well done and congratulations! A number of our neighbors can’t say the same, and it just adds to the REALITY that both Dublin High School and the City of Dublin are communities firmly dedicated to achieving and providing the BEST for ALL our students and residents!
