Families around Ireland choose Educate Together schools for their children because it is a model of education based on equality and human rights. 

Educate Together has its roots in the Dalkey School Project National School, which was founded in 1978 by parents, guardians and educationalists with the aim of advancing education in Ireland by promoting democracy in schools, creating schools which welcomed diversity and providing a child-centred education for every child. Parents and guardians wanted inclusive schools for their children, schools that embraced difference and celebrated principles of tolerance and mutual respect - today, more and more parents and guardians are looking for the Educate Together model for their children. At ETSS Wicklow, parents and guardians are vital in helping the school achieve that original founding aim.
