Student Life

Dolan provides a safe, nurturing environment for students to explore opportunities to become independent, confident leaders through a variety of learning experiences, inside the classroom and beyond. There is a strong sense of collaboration and community within the building to benefit each child. Our goal is to involve student and staff voice in schoolwide decisions and planning.

Dolan offers an array of extended school day programs, including sports, drama, competitive academic clubs and a 21Century Learning Center (academic support & student choice enrichments) to accommodate a wide range of student interests and needs. 

Dolan is also a GREEN-conscious school with ward-winning/recognized programs in schoolwide recycling, Garden Club, and sustainability. Dolan is a Nationally-Certified AVID College Preparatory Program. We specialize in programming & curriculum serving unique student needs (CORE developmental learning program for
students with special needs, New Arrivals English language immersion program that helps students new to the U.S. navigate their community and school).
