  • I am proud to be a parent of 2 Dedham Public School students. I am thankful for our community which is a treasure right outside of Boston. Dedham High has provided my older son with an excellent education and prepared him well for college in the fall of 09. The School Committee/ School Admin. and DHS faculty are dedicated, enthusiastic, and work very cohesively and have the vision to inspire young people to reach their goals. They have provided a wide range of opportunities over thed past 12 years for my son to challenge himself and grow as a young leader.
