Learning Support Programme
Founded in 1872, The Dwight School is a PreK-12 private international school located on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. In 1996, Dwight became the first school in North America to offer the full International Baccalaureate (IB) program from kindergarten through grade 12. 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 teachers are known for nourishing each child's passion for learning. They have the energy, intellect, and charisma that take children on a magical and challenging voyage of discovery. To help faculty hone their skills and broaden their expertise, Dwight provides faculty grants each year for research, travel, and other professional development.

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. The School believes and expects that its students will one day use their unique “spark of genius” to build a better world.

Dwight life is built on the principles of academic rigor, community service and unity of mind, body and spirit. The school is a highly moral community where service learning is a natural aspect of life. All students in grades 5-12 are encouraged to engage in meaningful community service activities as part of the Middle Years and Diploma Programs of the International Baccalaureate.

In 2001, Stephen Spahn, Chancellor of The Dwight School, founded The Institute for Civic Leadership (ICL) to encourage civic action and greater cross-cultural awareness among teens from public, private, and parochial schools. Each year, the ICL organizes a Dare to Dream Conference, inspiring hundreds of high school students to reach out and participate in the formation of something larger than themselves.

Dwight is an enterprising school and its students reflect that spirit. The school has foreign study programs in India, Peru, Mexico, Kenya, China, and England. Eight foreign languages are offered at Dwight along with Spanish, French and Chinese programs starting in kindergarten. International Baccalaureate Diploma courses are offered in high school. The school has superior university admission results, and graduates have been accepted to over 200 national and international colleges and universities and attended over 60 top-tier schools including Princeton, Harvard, Duke, The Julliard School, Columbia University, University of Pennsylvania, NYU, Brown, Cornell, Yale, Dartmouth, and Oxford University.
