Dwight-Englewood School

315 E Palisade Ave, Englewood, NJ 07631

Dwight-Englewood School resulted from the merger of Dwight School, a girls' school founded in 1889, and Englewood School for Boys, founded in 1928. After a decade of increasingly coordinated campuses and classes, the two schools were completely merged in 1974. In 1992, Dwight-Englewood expanded its upper and middle school curriculum to include the lower grades when it incorporated Bede School, an elementary school that opened in 1963. Enrolling students from northern New Jersey, Rockland County and the New York City metropolitan area, the school offers a preschool and kindergarten program. In the lower and middle grades, emphasis is on building a strong foundation in the core disciplines and in problem-solving skills. The upper school program, which includes honors and Advanced Placement courses and a fully integrated math/science/technology program, prepares graduates for admission to selective colleges. Students in grades 6-12 utilize tablet computers in class. Boys and girls perform 40 cumulative hours of required community service in grades 9-12.
