Welcome to the Dawson Middle School!
As an educator, I often ask myself how do we as a community raise confident, resilient, and happy children? Young people who push beyond their comfort zone, and do so with poise, determination and a smile?
A strong middle school embraces the challenge of guiding children on this journey, and we relish our role as your partner. Seriously, we love middle schoolers! Whether in the classroom, on the athletic field, performing on stage, strategizing in a robotics competition or serving our communities, together we are raising children at Dawson who do not simply “take chances” but who enthusiastically “grab” them. Our middle school students are encouraged to grow and be brave. And, we believe our small class sizes, dynamic program, and caring student support team provides the perfect balance to both nurture and challenge our students.
We believe each student will flourish and discover their voice during these three years, and each year of the Dawson middle school is uniquely crafted to launch students on a spirited trajectory to high school and beyond. Through a comprehensive advisory program, engaging afternoon co-curricular offerings, hands-on learning opportunities, and memorable trip experiences, students are met with care and support by our amazing faculty. Teachers who are not only educators, but also inspiring, enthusiastic mentors and coaches to our students.
We look forward to meeting you and learning about your children in the months ahead. As always, please feel free to reach out to me with any questions!
