Sarah J. Rawson Elementary School is a dynamic learning community that engages students in a strong, core academic program complemented by an innovative encore program with a focus on the arts. Our mission is to ensure that all students achieve personal excellence, that they develop the skills and interests that result in a passion for life-long learning, and that they gain the ability to participate as responsible citizens in school and in the world.

At Rawson, students and staff pursue excellence by following our Rawson RAMS motto of: Responsibility, Attitude, Motivation and Success. We believe that students are most successful when they demonstrate responsible behavior, have a positive attitude, and are motivated to learn.
Academy students are challenged by a demanding program of studies and a culture of high expectations. Upon this academic foundation, our students explore the arts through a rich array of programs. Instruction in the arts is a significant part of the students' school day.  Arts instruction is offered through Rawson's relationship with The University of Hartford's Hartt School Community Division. Rawson students have opportunities for in-depth studies with professional artists in jazz vocal performance, world percussion, visual arts, dance, and theater.
