Ballyroan Boys’ National School is an all boys school catering for boys from 1st class to 6th class. It is a national school under Catholic patronage. It existed since 1870 as Rathfarnham National School based in what became Rathfarnham Courthouse and is now Rathfarnham Community Centre. In September 1968 the boys and staff walked from this building near the Yellow House up the road to the newly built boys school on the junction of Ballyroan Road and Ballyboden Road.

Even though there are 300 boys attending the school, Ballyroan B.N.S. has a very strong family atmosphere about it. Many staff have spent their entire teaching career in the school and there is an ideal mix of youth and experience, male and female, on the staff. Many parents attended the school themselves and have now returned and settled in the area. The aims of the school involve helping the boys to achieve their potential, not just in academic terms but also in relation to emotional, social and spiritual development.

Every effort is made to give the boys a broad and rich educational experience as well as a strong academic and Christian foundation so they will remember their time in our school with fond memories.
