A Note From Dr. Overstreet...
DHS Apply to College Day: Twenty-Seven (27) seniors were accepted to Middle Georgia State University during last Thursday’s Apply to College Day at DHS! It was indeed a great day for Dublin High School juniors and seniors who participated in the DHS Apply to College Day on our campus. More than twenty-five colleges and universities were on campus to share with the many students who participated. I want thank our school counselor, Ms. Jessica Lemon, the Graduation Coach, Ms. Antionekio Madison, and the Family Engagement Coordinator, Ms. Krystal Waller for coordinating this event for our students.
The Georgia Match: The Georgia Match is a state initiative created by Governor Kemp to match every Georgia high school senior with colleges, universities, and technical colleges who notified them of their eligible admission to one or more Georgia institutions. Of the 132 Dublin High School seniors, 117 received their Georgia Match Letters while the other 15 should receive their individual letter in the second batch of letters soon.
PBIS Celebration: DHS will have a full day activities to promote of PBIS - Positive Behavior Interventions and Support on Thursday, November 16th.

We will transform our rotunda into a movie theater with a featured movie. It will be day of fun and fellowship among students and staff.
