Welcome to Dawson Middle School! 

At Dawson Middle School we take pride in all aspects of our campus as we work hard to prepare our students for their future today. We continue our tradition of creating a learning community which fosters excellence as it meets the unique needs of our middle school students. Our goal is to develop independent, life-long learners by fostering relationships which encourage students to reach their academic, extracurricular, and social potential within an inviting, respectful, safe, and supportive environment. Our hope is to always provide an excellent educational opportunity for ALL of our dragons! Highlights of our year can be seen via our Tradition, our parent newsletter sent out weekly and Twitter. You can follow us @GeorgeDawsonMS on Twitter for a peek into the great things happening at DMS!
