Against a spectacular modern skyline, the historic Shanghai Concert Hall stands, echoing with performances by generations of world-famous musicians who have graced the stage since its grand opening in 1930. This beautiful 1,122-seat venue was the setting for a sold-out concert entitled "Music of Spring" performed by nearly 130 students from Dwight campuses around the world.
Exchanges & Trips
We offer students the opportunity to study on any campus in The Dwight Schools network for a trimester or year. Additionally, in our exchange programs, students travel abroad, expand their world view, learn about other cultures, and forge lasting friendships with their peers at sister Dwight Schools, illustrating the numerous, invaluable benefits of being part of a global network of schools. Our programs include:
- Fifth grade reciprocal exchange with Dwight School London
- Ninth grade reciprocal exchange with Shanghai Qibao Dwight High School

"My favorite part of the trip is hard to narrow down to a single moment; instead, it was a series of moments! I loved the energy and collectiveness of the trip as a whole!" wrote tenth grader Alden Wilson, reflecting on the weeklong choral "extravaganza" at Dwight School London.
International fellowship was a guiding force for a group of four Dwight New York students and one Dwight Global student as they traveled to Shanghai last month for the 7th Shanghai International Youth Science & Technology Expo.
Among the many presenters, Dwight's team was a standout, winning the Most Popular Exhibition and making headlines in China Daily's Expo coverage! Congrats Lions!
It's hard to believe that our fifth graders have been traveling to Dwight School London for two decades!
"I feel happy that I had a chance to help Nicaraguan immigrants in Costa Rica. Learning about what they've experienced makes me feel grateful for what I have." — Josh Cheung '23
It was truly an honor to chaperone our first annual ninth grade trip to Shanghai Qibao Dwight High School in Shanghai.
"Shadowing students around Qibao Dwight High School for just two days has taught me more about the culture of youth in China than I could have ever learned from a textbook."

In a first for Dwight, 12 students and two teachers boarded a plane this week headed for an exchange program at Shanghai Qibao Dwight High School. Dwight — which has a long-standing exchange program for fifth graders with our campus in London that dates back 18 years — is proud to extend this tradition for older students through this inaugural program in China.
