About D-E

D-E Green


One of the ways that D-E “meet[s] the challenges of a changing world and make[s] it better”, as stated in our mission, is through the various green initiatives in which each division of our school partakes. Supporting these initiatives is done through a three-pronged approach -- through our curriculum both inside and outside of the classroom; ongoing evaluation and modification of institutional habits; and green-oriented campus. From the Lower School’s composting and recycling efforts to the Middle School’s many eco-centric clubs (Green Team, MS DIG [D-E in the Garden] Discovery class students, MS Garden Club) and the Upper School’s Environmental Club and AP Environmental Science courses, along with our School-wide participation in the annual Green Cup Challenge, Dwight-Englewood School is working to support sustainability. We invite you to explore our D-E Green website and its related links, and learn how you can join and support us.
