March 2020. That was the month schools in the United States, including Dwight in New York, began to close, following the closure of Dwight campuses in Shanghai, Seoul, and Dubai. (Soon, Dwight School London would follow.) But for Dwight Global Online School, it was business as usual — topped with a mission to support other educators as they adjusted to the intricacies of online learning.
We were well prepared to help our network of schools make the transition, thanks to our experience in creating an outstanding online learning experience since our founding seven years ago. Overnight, while continuing to offer our Dwight Global students the same elite level of education with no interruptions, we also pivoted into a mentorship role, helping fellow Dwight faculty and families as they adjusted to sudden and unexpected shifts to virtual learning. Similarly, Dwight Global provided guidance to educators, students, and parents beyond the Dwight network.
To share highlights of this remarkable year, we created the first-ever Dwight Global edition of Dwight Today, our school magazine. In this edition, we highlight the strength of our community, alongside news and special moments that brought us together to celebrate virtually and in person.
We encourage you to take a look at this exciting issue, right here:
