Our mission: Dawson School is dedicated to excellence of mind, body, and character.
We prepare students, through challenging and relevant learning,
to become creative, resilient problem-solvers who bring their best to the world.

*VIRTUAL OPEN HOUSE SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5

 
For 50 years, Dawson has been meeting each student where they are, and then developing them into tomorrow's leaders, thinkers, and creators through a rich and varied educational program. Students experience relevant, real-world learning, discover passions, develop character and leadership, and cultivate the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in college and beyond -- all in a supportive environment that recognizes them as individuals. We hope you will visit our community of students, faculty, staff, and families who value and share a commitment to leading-edge education.
