Dublin High School Renewal Project Enters Next Phase

November 3, 2011

With all academic classrooms completely replaced, the old classrooms demolished, and Gael Stadium and the new sports complex in frequent use, it’s time to move on to the next phases of the Dublin High School renewal project. The improvement projects at Dublin High School and at other sites across the district were approved by voters under Bond Measure C in 2004 (read more…)

In the most recent Bond Measure C Progress Report (presented November 1 at a Dublin Unified School District Board of Trustees meeting – read more…), the next phases of the Dublin High project were outlined:

Phase 3a – New Dublin High School Cafeteria

The new student cafeteria will not only provide students with meals, but will also provide a new home for Dublin High School’s Culinary Arts program. The new food preparation kitchen, cafeteria food service area, new culinary classrooms, and a teacher’s dining area are currently under construction and are scheduled to be open for the 2012-13 school year.

Phase 3b – New 500-Seat Performing Arts Center

The dramatic expansion of Dublin High’s Irish Guard Music Program, and the increasing popularity of the Dublin High Drama Program have outstripped the capacity of the existing Little Theatre. The new 500-seat theater, dressing rooms, scenery shop, band classroom, choir classroom, practice rooms, drama classroom, and a video production classroom are scheduled to be complete late Fall 2013. When complete, the new Dublin High School Performing Arts Center will not only be a resource for Dublin High’s Performing Arts programs, but also potentially for the City of Dublin (which currently lacks a venue for live theatre).

Phase 4 – Courtyard / Industrial Arts / Gymnasium Project

Further out, after the completion of Phase 3a and 3b, are finishing touches including modernizing the existing gym, completing the courtyard /quad, flat work / landscaping, and modernizing some spaces in the industrial arts building. The exact timing of this project is not finalized, but is targeted to complete in 2015.
