At the same time, Dwight challenges every student to develop intellectual independence, respect for diversity and belonging, and to become innovators and thought leaders.

Dwight, in collaboration with Dwight Global, its online program, is excited to launch an online Diploma Program to complement its in-person offerings. Dwight Global was founded in 2014 with the goal of taking Dwight's mission of igniting the spark of genius in every child and translating it into the cloud. Now with online students and teachers living in over 25 countries, Dwight Global has recently named a top online school by Newsweek and niche.com. Dwight Global is excited to extend Dwight's IB leadership into the online sphere in this inaugural year of its online Diploma program.

At Dwight, we strive to ensure that our environment is welcoming - a place in which everyone can thrive - and an organization we are proud of. We recognize that this takes trusting relationships and ensuring that all individuals feel valued regardless of their backgrounds.
