Welcome to James Dobson Elementary School!

Our Vision

Dobson students care for their community. They act with respect, empathy, and integrity in order to make a positive difference in the world around them.

Our Mission

Dobson seeks to shape students to act as stewards of the future. By creating opportunities for students to take action, students understand the ways they can contribute to positive change.



Message from the Principal

In the past year, it has been a privilege to learn and see all the ways Dobson shines. It has also been a privilege to be welcomed into the Dobson Family. And it is a true family.  The relationships that exist amongst the staff, students, families, and community members lead to focused and high-quality teaching and learning each day. Those relationships also fuel the energy that is taking Dobson to the next level. Dobson already offers so much, including – among many strengths – arts, music, robotics, sports, after-school clubs, social-emotional learning, and top-notch teaching. I am excited to work with everyone as we continue to shape the Dobson experience for our students. It is thrilling to consider how those experiences can help students understand the positive impact they can have in their community while preparing them to take advantage of all the opportunities they deserve.
