    My daughter attends here and LOVE IT! I only had one issue with the Spanish teacher and it got resolved REAL quick. The administrative office was on top of it. This school is wonderful. No complaints!!

    I love Dawson! I just moved here from Louisiana and it's amazing. Everybody's nice from administration to the students. The teachers are great and I've learned much more than I thought I would.

    This is an excellent school with teachers and administrators that truly care about the well being of their students. The Coaching staff is awesome as well and really supports the efforts of both the teacher and student; they truly hold their players accountable.
