Quest is a learning support program designed over the past 25 years to bring Dwight’s promise of personalized learning to life for students with specific academic needs* to promote their success.
Quest in action
- Quest teachers are subject area and learning specialists with proven success records
- A teacher is selected to mentor each student with careful thought toward skill and personal development
- Student-teacher pairings remain in place for the duration (with a change between Middle and Upper Schools)
- Quest teachers become important links between classroom teacher and parents, providing bi-weekly progress reports for each student
Quest fits easily into a student’s schedule
- Students meet with their Quest teacher three days per six-day cycle
- Students are also invited to have daily check-ins with their Quest teacher to ensure organization and homework readiness
- Being in Quest has almost no impact on a student’s broader school schedule and none on his/her ability to participate in after-school and athletic programs
Quest students are successful
- Quest students are frequently in honors and high-level classes, and go on to top universities, including Brown, Cornell, and NYU, in recent years
- Quest students consider their Quest teachers to be mentors and advocates
* Quest is not designed to support students with behavioral, physical, or emotional challenges.
Quest teachers are not certified occupational therapists, speech therapists, or physical therapists.
