Description

Dwight School Seoul opened in August 2012 with Dwight School campuses in New York, USA; London, UK; Vancouver Island, Canada and Shanghai, China. Students in Seoul and across our international campuses connect, interact, and share their different perspectives and cultural experiences through a variety of trips, exchanges, and digital communications, enriching the educational process for all. Dwight School Seoul adopts the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum, as an IB World School and is the only school in Seoul to be authorized in three IB programmes: Primary Years Programme (Pre-K-grade 5), Middle Years Programme (grades 6-10) and the Diploma Programme (grades 11-12). The IB curriculum is widely known as the most challenging and respected pre-university course of study anywhere in the world and the only universal curriculum where students are graded according to international benchmarks. Dwight School Seoul is accredited by both the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and Council of International Schools (CIS). Dwight’s commitment to the IB Programme ensures academic excellence always goes hand in hand with service learning and leadership training. Dwight School Seoul is located in Seoul’s Digital Media City, the Silicon Valley of South Korea. The award-winning D&B Architecture firm designed the 200,000-square-foot campus, which features two indoor gymnasiums; an outdoor soccer field, playground and basketball court; two large media rooms; a two-story library; two acoustic music classrooms with eight individual rehearsal rooms; Makerspace; and a performing arts center.
