Welcome to Dawson County High School.  It is our goal that each student receive an educational experience that will prepare them for life beyond DCHS.  We are committed to providing academic and activity programs in a safe environment where our students can acquire knowledge, skills, and values that will prepare them to be contributing, constructive members of our society.  We are dedicated to implementing effective school practices and to forming partnerships with parents and community in support of quality education.  We encourage each and every one of our students to become involved.  We offer eleven different activities sanctioned by the Montana High School Association.  We also provide many different student groups from Key Club to a strong academic team.  I strongly urge every student to seek out that niche that appeals to them and get involved in it to the highest degree.  Please feel free to contact me with questions you may have regarding Dawson County High School.  We look forward to working with you and your student as they transition through an important yet exciting time in their life.

Yours in Education,
Wade M. Murphy
