At Dwight, we strive to ensure that our environment is welcoming — a place in which everyone can thrive — and an organization we are proud of. We recognize that this takes trusting relationships and ensuring that all individuals feel valued regardless of their backgrounds. At Dwight, we encourage diversity in all respects, including diversity of thought, and embrace innovation and foster collaboration and growth.

We consistently strive to advance the equity, diversity and belonging of our community in all domains, including the curriculum, admissions, environment, and hiring. Our goal is to achieve and maintain equal employment opportunities, with policies in place to maintain a work environment free from discrimination.

As a school, we prioritize the health and safety of all community members, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have numerous protocols and precautionary measures in place for everyone’s protection, and all community members are required to follow strict guidelines, including wearing a face covering at all times, performing daily symptom checks, and taking weekly or bi-weekly COVID-19 tests.
