Welcome to the Dawes Middle School website.  At Dawes, our priority is to engage every student every day through building positive relationships, intentional teaching and learning, and fostering hope within our community.  Our highly qualified and dedicated staff members believe each student can and will meet our defined student learning goals:

1.  All students will improve their academic achievement in all subject areas

2.  All students will cultivate effective literacy skills.

3.  All students will enter high school with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to be successful.

In order to accomplish these goals we will collaborate with students, families, and our community partners to “relentlessly engage” each student in developing a clear blueprint for a successful life.  All Dawes students will know who they are, what they want to become, and how to obtain the skills, knowledge, and experiences to achieve their personal goals.
