Dwight-Englewood School: A Premier Private School in Bergen County (dedicated)

Schools  / 

Admit it. The minute your children were born, you started imagining their futures. As they grew, you force fed them broccoli so they could stay healthy, you held your eyes open with toothpicks to read that bedtime story to improve their minds and you fought the screen time battle to preserve their brain cells. So now that it’s time to look for a school that can partner with you as you nudge your kids toward the future you’ve dreamed for them, it’s worth taking a look at the Dwight-Englewood School. 

What you know for sure is that you want what’s best for your kids. At Dwight-Englewood School in Englewood, New Jersey, “what’s best” means 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.
