What is an Educate Together School

The name "Educate Together" symbolizes a primary principle of the multi-denominational movement, that children of all creeds, race and background be 'educated together' in an atmosphere of equality, mutual understanding and respect.

Since the Dalkey School Project first opened in 1978, our network has grown to 81 schools nationwide. These include 77 primary-level schools and 4 second-level schools. Information on Educate Together's second-level schools can be found here: www.educatetogether.ie/our-schools/second-level
