  About The School  

Where Excellence is The Standard

We pride ourselves at Dawson Springs Elementary School in providing an excellent education for our students.  We have new programs in place which provide additional help for studnets whose skills may be weak in Reading and/or Mathematics.  If your child comes home talking about Dream Box, Aleks, or Kid Biz, these are the names of the online programs designed to help build skills in those areas.  Children work on these programs 2-3 times a week during their "specials" time.  We are confident these programs, along with your child's hard work, will help increase confidence and ability in these very important subject areas.
