Message from the Principal
Welcome to Dodson Branch School’s website. We are a family-oriented school in a small, close-knit community on the southeast side of Jackson County. I am in my 28th year at DBS and 11th as principal. DBS is a Title 1 school serving 250 students in pre-kindergarten through 8th grade.
Our school is a source of great pride for the community. Residents are very supportive of our school and embrace having all their children together from pre-k through 8th grade. We take pride in our fundamental belief that ALL CHILDREN can learn! Our faculty and staff strive daily to provide adequate resources, instruction and support so all students can succeed. Please stop by and visit us!
Dodson Branch School is a small, rural school located in southeast Jackson County, Tennessee. We have approximately 250 students in grades pre-K through 8. The school building was originally built in the 1950s and expanded in 1999. Another addition was just completed in March 2011. Our school now boasts 16 classrooms and a full-size gymnasium!
All students will become lifelong learners who value education and reach their full potential as responsible, productive citizens.
We’ve got wildcat spirit!
