I loved my past four years at Dawson. I was accepted at this school when I was not at my previous school which I started at Kindergarten there. My first two years I did participate in sports, but my last two years I did not. The greatest thing about Dawson you are accepted there regardless of who you are.
You are made to feel welcome!

Dawson ISD is a great school despite how small it is I love it. I get along with everybody and I've built a great bond with certain people as well. Although, some teachers give too much work and I wish they would give less ,but other than that it is great. People may think we aren't the best at things but I believe in my Dawson team. When I first moved her I didn't like it much because I felt out of place but as the people started talking to me and treating me nicely I dearly love it . Honestly, I'm very glad I moved here and have such amazing friends .
I really like this school because its great to get an education because there are so little students you can just ask the teacher for one on one tutoring if needed. Also I met some of my greatest friends here at this school. The athletics program is also great.
