From The Alexander Dawson School at Rainbow Mountain

Welcome to The Alexander Dawson School at Rainbow Mountain! Located on 33 beautiful acres in Summerlin, a suburb of Las Vegas, Nevada, we are a non-sectarian, non-profit school offering students in preschool through eighth grade an inspired and meaningful education.

At Dawson, students never stop wondering what is possible. Our students are artists, scientists, explorers, authors, leaders, friends, and collaborators. Dawson classrooms inspire more than skills in math and reading; They are spaces where curiosity is sparked, discovery is celebrated and the rewards of deeper learning last a lifetime. The return on investment of a Dawson education is not measured simply by a diploma but by an educational experience that prepares our graduates to thrive no matter which path they choose in life. We ensure our students achieve their individual potential while savoring life and meeting the challenges of the world.

The future of education is here...join us at The Alexander Dawson School.

    Best independent school in Las Vegas, hands down. I came from Florida, where my son was enrolled in an excellent private school and was worried when we moved to Las Vegas that we would not find its equivalent here. We should not have worried: this school is outstanding and is everything I would hope for in a private school. My husband is in the tech industry and the methods they use to teach at Dawson--not memorization and timed tests, but actually project-based, creative and active learning--are the skills I know my child will need to succeed in the future. Can't say enough about this place!
