Glenda Dawson High School is a public secondary school in Pearland, Texas, United States. It is a part of the Pearland Independent School District serving grades 9 through 12. In 2011, the school was rated "Recognized" by the Texas Education Agency.[2]


Dawson, which opened in fall 2009, relieved students from the over-crowded Pearland High School. Dawson serves sections of Pearland, sections of Brookside Village, and unincorporated areas (including Silverlake).[3][4] The school was named after former Texas Representative Glenda Dawson, who taught for 34 years at Pearland High School. The groundbreaking ceremony occurred on August 1, 2007 with the school opening for the start of the 2009-10 school year. In fall 2007, the current Pearland Ninth Grade Center was converted into a temporary Dawson High School for two years; it served 9th and 10th graders the first year and 9th, 10th, and 11th graders in the second year.

Dawson High School's mascot is the Eagles, the same mascot as Pearland's Challenger Elementary School. Dawson's school colors are red, white, and blue. The school motto is: "Some Fly, We Soar."
