Welcome to Dawson Middle School. We embrace the unique challenges of middle school and relish our role as your partner. Seriously, we love middle schoolers and helping them find their confidence, determination, and joy.
Whether in the classroom, on the athletic field, performing on stage, strategizing in a robotics competition, or serving our communities, we are raising children at Dawson who enthusiastically 'grab' new opportunities.
Our middle school curriculum is crafted to launch students on a spirited trajectory to high school. Through a comprehensive advisory program, expansive co-curricular offerings, hands-on learning opportunities, and memorable trip experiences, students are met with care and support by our amazing faculty.
We look forward to meeting you and getting to know your children.
