Dublin Elementary School Principal Kalley Mitchell is beyond thrilled.


After all, it was her campus that was ranked #20 among the best elementary schools in Texas by U.S. News & World Report.


“This is such an honor. As the principal of Dublin Elementary, I take pride in everything the entire campus does to ensure academic and social and emotional success,” Mrs. Mitchell told Beneath the Surface News. “It takes every campus counselor, teacher, paraprofessional, secretary, custodian and cafeteria worker. This distinction also indicates we live and breathe our motto; Every Student, Every Minute, Every Day.”


The report states: “Dublin Elementary is a public school located in Dublin, TX, which is in a fringe rural setting. The student population of Dublin Elementary is 400 and the school serves PK-3.
