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!) Located just minutes from George Washington Bridge on a beautiful 40+ acre campus, D-E provides exceptional preparation for college and beyond, fostering problem-solving, community engagement, and the skills, tolerance, and integrity it takes to thrive in our ever multifaceted world. 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.

Hi! I'm searching for a chess class or club for my kindergartner in Bergen County? Any ideas? -Rachel J.
Yes, as a matter of fact we have two. ICA (International Chess Academy) hosts camps, clubs, tournaments and special events in Teaneck and Fair Lawn, so definitely check them out. Or if those areas aren’t convenient, one of the ICA instructors is hosting a club out of the Saddle River Library for ages Kindergarten and up which is broken down by skill level so it makes it easy for kids to learn and not get discouraged.
