Welcome to the Alexandra College Junior School, where your child's educational odyssey begins! We are a primary school for girls in Dublin that enrols approximately 325 students from ages 3 to 12: 

The Junior School provides a holistic education based on the principles of Friedrich Froebel. Our approach emphasises cross-curricular learning and interactive creative play. We follow the National Primary Curriculum as set by the Department of Education.

Our class teachers are passionate educators with deep expertise in the stages of child development.

We also have specialist teachers in French, music, PE, dance, drama, art and coding. Our aim is to keep Alexandra College always at the forefront of excellence in education, learning and child development, and to put the conditions in place in which each child will thrive and strive for all that they imagine they could be.
