Welcome to
Dwight Schools

We are a global network of premier International Baccalaureate World Schools with an unparalleled legacy of visionary leadership. Dwight in 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 renowned educator of global leaders ― one student at a time.
