Our 2023 Dwight Schools Global Concert marked many seminal moments: the return to our annual music festival in person in New York after three years, Dwight’s milestone 150th anniversary, and the beginning of our School’s next chapter.
DWIGHT SCHOOL by the numbers
When a dozen talented Dwight high school students faced off in the finals of this year’s Shakespeare Competition, sparks were flying! After grade-wide and semi-final rounds, they had impressed their English teachers, landing them in the culminating round and making it difficult for the judges to select a school-wide winner.
Senior Polina Nikitina, a singer, songwriter, and accomplished musician new to Dwight this year, brought her impressive talent and spark to campus — and in very short order galvanized attention for her passion project entitled “Gotham.”
