We are a global network of premier International Baccalaureate World Schools with an unparalleled legacy of visionary leadership. Dwight New York was the first U.S. private school to open a campus on another continent in 1972, a century after its own founding, and five more have followed.

No matter where a student attends Dwight, we personalize their journey based on individual talents and passions. We call this “igniting the spark of genius in every child.” Our unique educational philosophy has distinguished Dwight worldwide as a respected educator of global leaders ― one student at a time.

A MESSAGE FROM THE CHANCELLOR AND VICE CHANCELLOR

Dwight Schools are renowned internationally for providing students with a world-class education. Each School is a recognized leader in its home country ― collectively, our network is a powerhouse at the forefront of global education.

With a culture of innovation, a diverse and dedicated faculty of IB experts, and a singular mission to ignite the spark of genius in every child, Dwight Schools stand apart. Further distinguishing our network is an illustrious history dating back to 1872, when Dwight was founded in New York City, with numerous pioneering firsts and a three-generation legacy of family leadership.

We draw on these strengths across all of our seven campuses, where we customize the educational journey for each student based on their talents and passions. We empower them to pursue whatever captures their mind, spirit, body, or imagination ― and inspire them to believe that anything is possible. As we guide and support students on their individual IB trajectories and admission to top colleges and universities internationally, we also prepare them to succeed in the ever-changing working world.

While students travel their own path, they have opportunities to connect with peers at other Dwight Schools who share their interests through trips and exchanges throughout their journey. They join in cross-campus cultural, curricular, and extracurricular collaborations, introducing them to new friends, perspectives, and experiences. The world is at our students’ feet ― and we couldn’t be more delighted to offer them a global passport to learning.

OUR MISSION
Seven Schools, One Shared Philosophy

Our School in New York, founded in 1872, is the flagship campus. Those in London, Seoul, Shanghai, Dubai, and online followed. Today, with an additional School in Hanoi under construction, our network is expanding even further.

Wherever you find a Dwight School, you’ll discover that every one proudly lives our mission, shares a vision, and is built on the same three pillars.

Kindling their interests, we develop inquisitive, knowledgeable, self-aware, and ethical citizens
who will build a better world.

OUR VISION

To foster the next generation of global leaders who can thrive anywhere in the world.

OUR THREE PILLARS

Personalized Learning

Dwight embraces the individuality of each learner, as no two students are the same. Dwight supports these student journeys through a robust academic curriculum and after-school programs. Dwight makes it a priority to focus on and develop each child’s spark of genius. Whether connecting a student with an exceptional mentor, designing tailor-made enrichment, crafting a special study abroad opportunity, or providing an innovative program or tutorial, Dwight recognizes and fosters each student’s gifts and talents.

Community

Dwight’s community is a family of diverse individuals whose collective goal is to build a better world. The power of our learning environment is enhanced by connecting and valuing all members’ different contributions and talents. Through unlimited service, leadership, programmatic, and scholarship opportunities, we inspire students to find their own unique paths to action.

Global Vision

Dwight’s mission, vision, and pillars extend globally across our network of schools and are supported by the International Baccalaureate ethos. Students develop a sense of themselves and the world around them. Dwight opens students’ hearts and minds through challenges and opportunities, inviting students to build bridges within and between cultures.
