    Note: The following information was drawn from multiple sources, many of which can be found in the Alameda County Library, Dublin Branch. It is a work in progress. Local history, especially Dublin’s history, can often have conflicting information and dates, especially regarding the completion of construction and the opening of schools. Since much of this information came from newspapers that often relied on only one or two people’s recollections, please understand that some information might not be accurate. This chronology also includes the year some other, non-public, schools opened in Dublin, in order to describe the larger context of Dublin’s education history.
