Not far from Red Rock Canyon in Southern Nevada sits a mature-for-its-years early childhood to grade 8 independent school with an amazing history behind it and an exciting trajectory in front of it.  The Alexander Dawson School, located on 33-acres in the beautiful community of Summerlin—about fifteen minutes west of the Las Vegas airport—has had the financial and operational support of the Alexander Dawson Foundation since its doors opened in 2000. In the last twenty years, the school has embraced all aspects of student-centered education and modern learning as it continues to build and improve upon an exceptional core academic program.

Dawson has created a new role—director of co-curricular programs—to oversee three essential programs outside the core academic day: Athletics, Summer Camp, and After School Enrichment. As the assistant head of school for teaching and learning becomes Dawson’s next head this July, the director of co-curricular programs will be integral in designing and expanding co-curricular offerings to align with the progressive, innovative, and experiential academic program for which Dawson is nationally known. The director of co-curricular programs reports to the director of teaching and learning and starts July 1.
