    Founded in 1872, Dwight School is an internationally renowned independent school (nursery-grade 12) committed to educating the next generation of innovative global leaders — one student at a time. Providing a personalized experience for each student through the academically rigorous International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum, Dwight is dedicated to "igniting the spark of genius" in every child. The IB organization has recognized Dwight School as a world leader in international education.

    Dwight is an internationally renowned educator of the next generation of global leaders ― one student at a time. We are dedicated to crafting a personalized journey for every student based on individual interests and passions. We call this igniting the "spark of genius" in every child. Together with community and global vision, personalized learning are the three pillars upon which a Dwight world-class education rests.

    At the core of Dwight is our steadfast commitment to putting our students first. This will never change, regardless of where innovation takes us. Our inspiring faculty ― master teachers ― are the cartographers who encourage students to believe in their own talents, follow their hearts, and take intellectual risks through the International Baccalaureate. No other curriculum fits better with our vision of educating successful individuals and innovative global leaders. The IB's academic breadth and depth are unparalleled, which is why it is recognized worldwide as adequate preparation for college and university.

    With a global network of Dwight Schools spanning three continents, students have numerous opportunities to travel and participate in enriching cross-campus cultural and curricular exchange programs. The world is literally at their feet ― and we could not be more delighted to offer our students an international passport.

    Dwight is dedicated to igniting the spark of genius in every child. Kindling their interests, we develop inquisitive, knowledgeable, self-aware, and ethical citizens who will build a better world. Our vision is to foster the next generation of global leaders who can thrive anywhere in the world.

    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 unique study abroad opportunity, or providing an innovative program or tutorial, Dwight recognizes and fosters each student's gifts and talents.

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

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

    Dwight values an inclusive and diverse community. Our rich and long-standing New York presence, combined with an international focus, has allowed us to develop our community and celebrate diversity in all its forms. We understand that our School's community is enriched by its members' varying backgrounds, including age, cultural tradition, ethnicity, gender, nationality, physical ability, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic position.

    We seek to enroll families who will work in partnership with the School to embrace the challenging ― yet rewarding ― situations borne from diversity. Furthermore, we will support and advocate for our community, recognizing that different perspectives are valued. We recognize that our community includes our families, faculty, staff, and alumni ― all of whom contribute to the tapestry of Dwight.

    As an International Baccalaureate World School, Dwight is committed to a strong sense of global understanding. We recognize that diversity as a concept continues to evolve and that we ― as a community ― will evolve with it. Our dedication to this effort shall be ongoing.

    The International Baccalaureate® aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end, the organization works with schools, governments, and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment. These programs encourage students worldwide to become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
