Selecting the right school for your family is one of the most critical decisions you’ll ever make. Beyond academics, your child’s future successes, interests, values, personal connections and community involvement are all at stake. And in today’s ever-changing world, passion for learning is essential. Which is why you should start now by taking a look around at schools in the area to find the right fit.
The highly acclaimed Dwight-Englewood (D-E) School in Englewood is a great place to start. With a strong tradition in rigorous academics, the arts, compassion and independent thinking, D-E serves children in preschool through grade 12 (look, Mom, no switching schools until college!)

From hands-on learning centers in art, dramatic play, foreign languages and more for preschoolers ... to the incredible 5th Grade “Creating Original Opera” program in partnership with New York’s Metropolitan Opera, D-E’s, Lower, Middle and Upper School academic and co-curricular offerings both challenge students and encourage their curiosity and leadership skills, providing a myriad of experiential opportunities, both within the classroom and beyond.
