I’ve been in Dawson since I was 3 and it’s truly been amazing. Although recently my encounters with several teachers have been awful, it’s still be great. The teachers that put serveral of us at a disadvantage had nothing happen to them. Some deserved to be fired from their actions. But overall it’s been great and I can’t wait for the rest of my high school experience.

Dawson County Schools system is a very friendly environment. We are a very small town just north of Atlanta. With that being said, everyone knows everyone, so our school is very homely and I wouldn't change anything about our little school.
All in all, Dawson County has some good schools. However, I have found that there are times that can be called in to question as far as teaching skills and curriculum accuracy goes.
