Dwight School is an internationally renowned college preparatory school with a rich, 147-year tradition of academic excellence and igniting the "spark of genius" in every child. Dwight's world-class education rests on three pillars: personalized learning, community, and global vision. The School's diverse faculty and student body represent over 40 countries, deepening the internationally minded, innovative learning environment.

A leader in global education, Dwight is the first school in the Americas to offer the comprehensive International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum for students from preschool through grade 12. It was also the first school in New York City to offer the PYP. The rigorous IB is recognized as the "gold standard" in pre-university preparation. Through the IB, Dwight is educating students to become caring, open-minded and critical-thinking global leaders. Foreign language instruction is extensive and begins in preschool.

Through Spark Tank, Dwight's unique incubator designed to nurture innovation, entrepreneurship, and leadership skills beyond the classroom, K-12 students develop their own ideas for new businesses, non-profits, and products.
