The curriculum and student handbooks of the three high schools in the Dublin City School District were revised in 2007 to conform with the International Baccalaureate degree program. These changes included recognizing all students with a GPA of 4.1 or above to receive a valedictorian status, a shift from a seven period day to an eight period day, and a change from year long 1.0 credit courses to semester 0.5 credit courses. Students now receive 0.5 credits for each semester, instead of 1.0 credit at the end of the year.
A Coldwell Banker real estate agent named Akiko Miyamoto stated in Car Talk that the services provided for Japanese speakers by the school district attract Japanese expatriates to Dublin. The district offers Japanese interpreters who send e-mails written in Japanese, provide interpretation services at school events, and translate documents.
