    Featured Review: Parent says This is the fifth year my kids attend Dwight School and it has certainly been the best choice I've ever made as regards their education.We are native Brazilians, and as such, we were looking for an International School where our children would belong within a diverse, friendly, environment.Dwight's IB program stimulates students to think critically, independently, responsibly, in order to become long time learners.With a sound academic program, it aims at high achiever learners with many opportunities for each according to needs, interests, and styles.Its world language program offers a strong curriculum from preschool, with three options among foreign languages: Mandarin, Spanish, French. During the tough year of 2020, due to Covid 19, the school devoted its endless effort to remain open and provide in person learning as much as possible. I am forever grateful for the many rich events...My kids love going to school and I truly recommend Dwight!.
