On Overall Experience: Dawson is a great school! I had experience in the Houston school district and in my opinion it's no comparison to the PISD. The staff is very involved with the success of the students. They want them to succeed so they provide resources necessary for them to succeed. I love the fact that they know there kids whether popular or not involved.. It was truly a great overall experience!
