I used to got to this school ,but I have moved and now attend Highland Hills Middle School in Georgetown, Indiana. Highland Hills has a much better learning experience than I will have in Dawkins. We don't have recess ,but we might do swimming because we have 3 pools in the school. 5,6,7,8 grade attend this school it is quite big 3 floors I really enjoy my learning experience here a lot and i hope this helped you.

This school seriously needs new teachers who actually like middle school aged children. They also need to learn that district pollcy are meant to be followed not just something that they can choose to ignore.

I am a regular substitute teacher at Dawkins Middle School. I must say that out of all the schools that I have subbed at, this school tops them all. The teachers and administrators are so friendly and helpful. Mr. Kizer is the best principal that you could ask for!I would recommend anyone to send their child/children to this school because it is one of the best!

I used to go to DMS and let me tell you, it was the best year and a half of my life! The teachers were super nice and so were the students. With extracirricular activities and great staff members, DMS is the place to be! When we moved away I cried and cried because I knew when we moved there would NEVER be another Dawkins!

I think that Dawkins is a great school. The teachers come up with cool ways for the students to learn and have fun at the same time. I think that it is really important for a school to do that. If the teachers didn't do that I don't think that the students would want to come to school each day to learn news things if it was not fun.

I go to Dawkins Middle and let me tell this school is non stop fun. But behind that fun is hard academic studies which allow us to succeed and learn. I love Dawkins and all the fun times, fun people and most of all overall school spirit all we Bearcats give.

Misbehaved and unknowing students go in, talented and disciplined students come out. Dawkins helps students find the Einstine within themselves.
