Dublin Coffman High School is a public high school located in Dublin, Ohio, United States, a suburb northwest of Columbus, Ohio, which was formerly known as Dublin High School. It is the oldest of three high schools in the Dublin City Schools district, and serves the southern and central parts of the District.

History[edit]

Dublin Coffman High School was originally established as Dublin High School in January 1973, and was the only high school in the Dublin school district at that time. Dublin High School changed its name to Dublin Coffman High School in 1995 after the school's acceptance into the Ohio Capital Conference and plans to build a second high school—eventually named Dublin Scioto—were announced.

Over its almost forty-year history, Coffman has gone through many additions and upgrades; the most major include the expansion of the B building, which now houses the English, World Languages, and Social Studies departments, and the addition of the A building, which encompasses the library, technology- related classes, Mathematics, and Science departments.

In the 2009-2010 school year, Dublin Coffman underwent a series of renovations to the building. These renovations made it possible to add 10 classrooms, seal the outdoor courtyard, add classrooms off of and below the bridge between the A and B buildings, and move the location of the administrative offices and main entrance to the opposite side of the building . In addition to this, the renovations converted the old administrative area to new classrooms. The Rock Shop was moved from its original location to the cafeteria, near the girl's restrooms.[4]

Dublin Coffman High School is a part of the Dublin City School District in central Ohio. The Dublin City School District has been awarded Ohio's highest academic rating, Excellent with Distinction, for its eighth consecutive year.[5] Their mascot is the Shamrocks, also known as the Rocks.
