Grade 10


Tenth grade marks the culmination of the IB Middle Years Program. In this important year, students refine their Approaches to Learning skills, equipping them with the self-awareness and knowledge to take on more challenging work in eleventh and twelfth grades.

At Dwight, the defining achievement for a tenth grader is the completion of the Personal Project, an eight-month-long undertaking in which students define, research, and present a topic of their own choosing. Students may design an innovative product to address a global issue, for example, or closely examine a concept relevant to their daily life.
