Dublin Jerome High School is a public high school located in Dublin, Ohio, northwest of Columbus, Ohio. It is the newest of the three high schools in the Dublin City Schools district. Jerome opened for its first year during the 2004-2005 school year. Though located in the southeast tip of Union County, Dublin Jerome primarily serves students in parts of Franklin County and Delaware County. Jerome's mascot is the Celtic Warrior. Jerome was ranked number 143 in the Newsweek top high school rankings in 2013. In 2010, Jerome was honored as a Blue Ribbon School by the US Department of Education.
In 2020, U.S. News and World Report ranked Dublin Jerome as the #352 best public high school in the United States, and the #9 best public high school in Ohio.
The band was formed in 2004 when the school first opened. The Band has received a 'I' Superior rating at the Ohio Music Education Association (OMEA) state finals for its entire existence (2004–Present). Their highest score in OMEA competition is currently 281.45 scored during the 2019 season at Thomas Worthington High School. Their second highest score earned in 2018 was a 280.05! They have received this score at the Buckeye Invitational, hosted by the Ohio State University's marching band, in 2011, 2013, 2016, 2018.
The Dublin Jerome Orchestra plays a combination of both classical and more modern music. It is conducted by Michelle Adair and has three concerts per year. The last concert of the year is the Concerto Concert in which three soloists perform, accompanied by a full orchestra. Pieces performed in the past have included Faure Elegie cello concerto, Bruch Violin Concerto, Sergei Rachmaninoff's 2nd Piano Concerto, Tchaikovsky's 1st Piano Concerto, and other well-known works.
The Dublin Jerome Choir as a whole performs once at the yearly Holiday Showcase with the rest of the music department, and once again in the springtime for an original concert. Each time the choirs have gone to competitions (most notably, OMEA contests), they have received a "I" (superior) rating. The two higher choirs at Jerome, the chamber group A Capella and the all-girl group Chorale, were invited to perform in New York's Carnegie Hall in April 2010.
A school tradition is to have a bagpiper lead the football team onto the field every Friday night. The Cross Country team also utilizes bagpipes at their annual Celtic Clash race.
Dublin Jerome has had a Drama Club and a Theatre 3 Acting Ensemble since it first opened.
