Healthy Bodies = Healthy Minds

The Alexander Dawson School uses Sage Dining Services to provide healthy snacks and meals for our students

We know that healthy minds and healthy bodies work in tandem, so providing high-quality and delicious food choices is a priority. Research shows that improved nutrition in schools leads to increased focus and attention, improved test scores and better classroom behavior. Nutritious food options encourage lifelong healthy eating habits.

At The Alexander Dawson School we are fortunate to have a 2,200-square-foot organic garden that supplies our Dining Hall with over 60 fresh fruits and vegetables while teaching students the importance of understanding where their food comes from. When students are invested in the process of cultivating their own food, they are more willing to try new foods, are more physically active, and eat more fruits and vegetables, which leads to overall achievement in academics.

Utilizing the unique Challenge Success framework, Dawson uses research-based strategies and programs that emphasize student academics, wellbeing, and a healthy school-life balance to create more engaged, motivated, and resilient learners and leaders. At Dawson, students achieve their individual potential while savoring life and meeting the challenges of the world.
