It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Dawson Lower School. We pride ourselves on creating an unparalleled educational experience for children that focuses on their social, emotional, and academic needs while recognizing their individual strengths.
Our classrooms feature highly qualified educators, an average student-teacher ratio of 10:1, and cutting edge classroom resources and technology integration to support students as they grow and learn. This approach ensures that all students receive highly individualized attention throughout the school day and that they feel connected and valued as members of a learning community.
In addition to the strong core academic program, Dawson is highly committed to the whole child. Our students also have the opportunity to attend six different resource classes (Art, Music, Technology, Spanish, Library, and PE), access to our spacious campus and gorgeous facilities, along with the option to participate in our highly regarded After School Academy (ASA).
In short, the Dawson Lower School is a wonderful place to be a kid. I look forward to learning more about your hopes and dreams for your child and helping you make the decision about whether Dawson is the right fit for your family.
Dr. David D’Ercole,
Lower School Director
