Dublin Heights Elementary and Middle School's Mission Statement

Dublin Heights E&MS has a proud tradition (going back to 1823), of educating young people in the Bathurst and Sheppard community.

  • Our over 862 students represent over 20 language groups. Russian is the predominant first language among our English as a second language students. Almost one-half of our students speak English as a second language.
  • Dublin Heights E&MS hosts Special Education programs, including Grades 7 and 8 Gifted programs, a Physical Needs program, and Grades 5-8 Deaf and Hard of Hearing District-wide programs.  Students are integrated into regular classes and resource support is provided as required by available support staff.


Dublin Heights E&MS is wheelchair accessible for all students and the community at large. The Dublin Community Child Care, which provides before and after school care, moved into a new facility in March 1999.
Staff and community believe that our students must:
-Engage and succeed in relevant, dynamic learning experiences designed to meet their diverse social, academic and co-curricular needs.
-Be actively involved in the school community, exhibiting confidence, social competence and critical thinking
-Feel empowered to present their viewpoints and negotiate options
-Work with each other, as well as school staff, in an atmosphere based on mutual trust, safety and respect.


Dublin Heights works closely with our  feeder schools and local secondary schools to ensure a smooth and successful transition for all of our students. Our grade eight students visit secondary schools prior to making a final decision for their grade 9 placement.

Student Life - Where You Belong


Students at Dublin Heights take part in a challenging academic program.  We’re also an Eco school and our students have taken up the challenge to improve our school's environmental appeal. The courtyard and front yard garden areas are evidence of our eco-club's diligence. We have an active Student Council that fund raises to support children's charities such as Free the Children. Our students have access to an outstanding in-school library program, which highlights literature that reflects the diversity of our community, and is the hub of the school. As well, Dublin prides itself in its involving and varied music program. Our students look forward to the celebration of their contribution to our school at our Spirit Assemblies. The most outstanding features of our school are its high academic standards, various student leadership opportunities, and an inclusive environment that values all learners. Everyone feels welcome at Dublin Heights.


Our school is committed to establishing a school wide professional learning community.  Groups of teachers meet in divisional teams within the school day to develop and reflect on their best practises. Our professional learning communities base their focus upon areas of need, illustrated by our most recent data. We then implement current evidence-based teaching strategies that will best meet our students' needs.


To ensure parent and community involvement: The Dublin Heights School Advisory Council (SAC) meets throughout the year to hear about school programs and plan initiatives and activities that support student success.  At Dublin, we believe that:  parents and teachers work together to develop scholarship, leadership and character in our school community. Through our school support team meetings referrals for support and services are made to a variety of agencies.
