Dawson Elementary School 5

Dawson Elementary School is an incredible neighborhood school serving South Austin and many transfer students. My daughter has attended since Pre-K and transferred in for the Dual-Language program which is outstanding. Every teacher she has had (and that we've met) are wonderful and compassionate. Besides academics, our community couldn't be more diverse, with English Language Learners from all over the world, an awesome inclusive SpEd program, Communities in Schools support and tons of supplemental life skills and social and emotional programming. I had never heard of the Early Act First Knight program until Dawson, but it's a great tool sponsored by the Rotary Club and teaches our children values and traits from Medieval Times. There's nothing like hearing your child come home and tell stories of Compassion or Perseverance at the age of 5. To then be invited to your child's knighting is one of the proudest moments you will have in parenting, and have the Dawson to thank for providing that moment and wholesome lessons for your children. We feel so lucky to have found a community at Dawson that provides wholesome learning beyond just academics and testing.

Dawson is an amazing school for children! This community is a safe, welcoming community that is also very inclusive and diverse. With Dual Language, the Creative Learning Initiative, Social Emotional Learning, and the Texas Literacy Initiative (just to name a few programs and initiatives at the school), your child will receive a rigorous and enriching education. The teachers and staff of the campus work collaboratively to ensure that your children not only succeed at the elementary level, but will be prepared for college and life beyond school. Dawson is awesome!

My child also goes to Dawson and she has since Early Childhood classes. She is now on the 5th grade. I can easily say that there are teachers there who will not go out of their way for the students. However many teachers will. The building is very unprotected and unsafe for students. I attened Dawson and nothing has changed about the school structural wise.

My daughter went to this school for Pre-K and loved it. The teachers were amazing and I was very impressed with the structure and pleasant atmosphere.

I attended here for elementary education. I choose to have my son attend here as well. The teachers, principal, and staff work in tandem to ensure the sucess of the students. Many teachers are noted for going beyond the classroom to ensure their students success.

This school is great by the people who run it, but this building could uses some updates. Better play ground, track, and need tress to provide shade during the hot days. A place were kid can decide to sit and rest under a cool area.
