Dwight-Englewood is a coeducational, college preparatory school for students in preschool through grade twelve. Our school community draws together students, faculty, administrators, staff, and parents of varied religious, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. We prize this rich diversity, the tolerant exchange of ideas and interests, and the respect and friendship that enhance our daily lives. Over 40% of the School’s population is comprised of students of color who represent the diversity of Bergen County and the tri-state area.
