We are a school that values community both Irish and global and a place that creates opportunities for every student to fulfil her potential.

Our Values

We are Supportive

We offer a supportive and nurturing environment for all our girls. At the heart of our ethos to support and nurture is a focus on well-being and relationships. We support and encourage the growth and self-development of our students, helping them reach their full potential and discover their personal strengths. We celebrate individual talent and spirit while giving our girls the space to be themselves.

We are Inclusive

We are inclusive of everyone at Rathdown. We believe diversity and difference make us a better school, a better community, a better place to learn and a better place to grow as individuals. Our inclusive school community provides a framework so every child feels safe and has a sense of belonging. We believe respect and understanding thrive when students of different abilities and backgrounds play, socialise, and learn together.

We advocate Honesty, Respect and Loyalty

We believe in providing a moral foundation for all our students to become better individuals and global citizens. These foundations reinforce the importance of truth, honesty, fairness, respect and loyalty. We want all our students to never forget the values we hold dear.
