Dublin HS should not be ranked #12 in the nation. Stats are skewed. Student population listed as 496, in reality they have 1600 students. Only 39 students in 12th grade? Impossible. Student teacher ratio of 7:1 not accurate.

The article says there's 26 kids in the senior class?! Web Link
That cannot be correct. We are talking about Dublin public high school, right, not Village private school? There's something very wrong with this story and the stats, although it's nice for Dublin residents to take pride in their schools and think they can outperform Pleasanton schools.

After reading comments on PW, my original hypotheses have been proven correct. Rather that Pleasanton people say “right on Dublin!” you locals state "how come dublin school is ahead of foothill and amador?" Another writer states: "US News made a mistake with another high school,..."
Sad, P-Town. What’s wrong about giving others the high-five?

There is problem with the poll. They have dublin listed 12th in the nation based on stats that it has a 7:1 student to teacher ratio. This is not correct. They are more like 28:1. The same mistake was made with the school from henderson nv that came in 13th. They actually publicly announced that the stats USN&WR were erronious.
