Welcome to Dwight-Englewood School!  It’s a pleasure to welcome you to get to know our dynamic, inspiring, and inclusive community.  I hope that you’ll take some time to explore our website to learn more about the school and our mission.  

As a community of learners, we are most excited about how we can inspire young people to become the very best versions of themselves.  We do this by inviting them to invest in and develop what we call “HumanEd Qualities,” which are meant to be both “Humane,” insofar as they allow our caring educators to treat each student with dignity and compassion while helping them grow, and to be “Human” insofar as they are the uniquely human characteristics that will allow students to grow into their best selves. We feel that, in the face of rapid technological and societal change, the very best way to prepare students to meet the challenges of a changing world is to invest in helping them develop such distinctly human qualities as collaboration, initiative, creativity, critical thinking, risk-taking, perseverance, engagement, and curiosity.

We hope to inspire a love of learning by giving students the chance to learn what they love.  We do this by exposing students to a wide variety of rigorous academic content and approaches, by offering the finest performing and visual arts experiences, and by encouraging athletic excellence in a broad range of sports teams and clubs.  We are committed to the belief that a top-flight education is a “both/and” proposition, and we strive to serve the student with a passion for playing basketball and the violin, the chemist with a love of lacrosse, and the musical theater star fascinated by world history.

The aim of everything we do is to ultimately inspire students to, as our mission states, “make it better.”  We believe that a great educational experience equips students to go out into the world and make a positive impact and it is our hope that by positively impacting the lives of our students we can positively impact their current and future communities.

We hope you will take the time to get to know us, and give us the opportunity to get to know you, by visiting our admissions page and beginning the process of becoming a Bulldog!  Seeing who we are and what we do firsthand is the best way to get to know Dwight-Englewood School.
