The Dwight School
The Dwight School
With the opening of Woodside Preschool in the fall of 2005, Dwight became the first school to offer the IB Primary Years Program for children ages 2-4. Dwight continues to be a pioneer in international education and today nearly 40 countries are represented in its student body.
Dwight’s rigorous IB program and world-class faculty prepare a future generation of well-educated and ethical global leaders who will seek to create an environment of equality and respect for all human beings.
Dwight Community
The Dwight School is like a great orchestra coordinating harmony among children from 37 countries. What makes Dwight special is an ability to harvest the rich resources of parents, alumni, teachers, and community to nourish a meaningful educational adventure for each student.
Academics:
We have witnessed our students become tolerant, compassionate, responsible, and internationally-minded citizens. Master teachers from all corners of the globe create the IB curriculum and framework. We are passionate advocates of the IB as a unique program - with three thousand schools worldwide. With the opening of Woodside Preschool in the fall of 2005, the IB Primary Years Program now extends into Dwight’s Early Years Program.
Dwight is subdivided into four separate academic houses:  Timothy House (K-5), Bentley House (6-8), Franklin House (9-10), and Anglo House (11-12), and the Early Years Program at Woodside Preschool (ages 2-4).
Athletics and activities:
One thing makes Dwight athletics different from other athletic programs: the direct link between sports and life. The Dwight Athletic Department centers on the philosophical reflection of how to live a healthy and happy life through exercise and competition. Its primary goal is to develop a well-balanced individual with acute awareness, willpower, discipline, and mental acuity.
Athletics at Dwight are divided into two areas - sports teams and athletic courses.
Similarly, Dwight student activities are an integral part of a well-rounded education.  Our Passport Program for students K-4 and our Ambassadors Program for students in grades 5-6 offer a variety of programs, including athletic programs, five days a week for a modest fee. Students in grades 7-12 are required to participate in at least one sport or activity all three semesters.  They may choose from over 15 student activities.
Visual and performing Arts:
Dwight’s Visual and Performing Arts Department uses a professional model in an educational setting. This Department operates on the belief that students of all ages have artistic talents and gifts that are meaningful not only to themselves but to other people in the Dwight community, the city, in local neighborhoods, and even around the world. Students undergo a rigorous and fulfilling schedule that gives them opportunities to perform and present their work several times a year in connection with professional arts in New York City. Casting directors, agents, dance companies, fashion shows, galleries, film festivals, and charitable and community organizations collaborate with Dwight students. Dwight student artists are given every opportunity to become part of the arts world—locally, nationally and internationally. The Department includes the following four core areas: Visual Arts, Music, Dance, and Theater.
