I applied for this school because I wanted to go to a private school to receive better education. I'm not saying that my public schools gave me poor education, but it's just that i wanted to go harder. Having completed my first year here, I completely regret coming here in the first place. The education ...  Read more

As a middle school student, I felt the quality of education at D-E was inconsistent. Some of the more experienced teachers were outstanding, but many of the newer teachers were very poorly prepared. They struggled to answer questions on information in the textbook, and were unable to answer any questions ...  Read more

I had a very unusual background, so my experience may not be relevant to many of D-E's applicants. I was born into a lower socio-economic community, and attended substandard elementary schools. When I transferred into Dwight-Englewood as a 7th grader, I was tracked in the lowest classes due to my poor ...  Read more

As parents of a current student at Dwight Englewood, we feel the academics are mediocre and college placement is sub-standard compared to other private day schools in NYC and NJ. Ever try to find independent assessment of Dwight's academics and college placement? There isn't much on the internet. ...  Read more

I'm so thankful that I did not listen to all the folks who thought I was crazy to apply to Dwight-Englewood. My son hated our public middle school and I had to find another option for him besides catholic school. The administration and the teachers are the best! The Head of School Dr. De Jarnett is ...  Read more

We Love D-E! Our children are both happily settled into Lower School and we could not be happier with our decision. We searched other private schools and religious schools in the area, and Dwight-Englewood had the perfect blend of nurturing, academics and play all rolled into one. As a working mother ...  Read more

Having had two children graduate from D-E I can attest to the quality education they received there. Both children attended a prestigious college and went on to receive higher degrees. Both received tremendous support from teachers especially in the arts. This is a wonderfully nurturing school where ...  Read more

The academics at this high school are excellent if a student is willing to take advantage of them. Parents who complain generally have underachiever children who don't want to work, and then the parents are baffled at their child's lack of success. If a student challenges himself or herself and takes ...  Read more

The junior high school grades 6-8 at Dwight used to be call the "jewel" of the school. Unfortunately, this is no longer true. The current principal, a former gym teacher, has a limited academic background. She has watered down the curriculum so that the education is no better than any middle of the ...  Read more

I recently graduated from Dwight Englewood School and it was the most amazing experience that I have ever had. I had been there for thirteen years and it became my home. To this day I still go and visit everyone whenever I am home on a break. The teachers really taught me how to think critically and ...  Read more
