Dwight School Seoul

Dwight School Seoul is the only school in Seoul offering the International Baccalaureate programme in its entirety, from preschool to grade 12. Dwight School Seoul is a private, non-profit, secular, co-educational, day school serving the educational needs of international and Korean students.


Dwight School Seoul is a member of The Dwight Schools, a global network of educational institutions committed to the philosophy of IB education. Dwight School Seoul opened its doors in August 2012. It is an authorized IB World School by the International Baccalaureate Organization providing all three IB programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), and Diploma Programme (DP). Through the curricula, students are taught to engage with the global challenges through inquiry, action, and reflection. The language of instruction at Dwight School Seoul is English.

Spark of Genius

Dwight School Seoul is dedicated to igniting a “spark of genius” in every child. We nurture and cultivate this spark through our commitment to three pillars: personalized learning, global vision and community. The three pillars provide students with the tools they need to ignite this spark, turning passion into purpose.


Global Vision

Educating students to be leaders in an increasingly global world lies at the heart of Dwight’s educational philosophy. Our community at Dwight School Seoul is comprised of students, staff and faculty from all over the world, and we offer an extensive foreign language program. Dwight Schools around the world follow the prestigious International Baccalaureate Program for students. IB students are measured against the same universal benchmarks.


Dwight Seoul is the most recent member of the growing Dwight Schools, which also includes campuses and programs in New York, London, Vancouver Island, and Shanghai. Students in Seoul and across our international campuses connect, interact, and share their different perspectives and cultural experiences through a variety of trips, exchanges, and digital communications, enriching the educational process for all.


Personalized Learning

Dwight always puts the student - and their strengths and interests - first. No two students are alike. To help them on their path, Dwight may craft a unique study abroad program just for one student, or might fashion a one-of-a-kind physical workout regime addressing a child’s particular dreams. It might partner a student with a leader in a particular field for a rare mentorship, or it might provide a one-on-one tutorial to help a student overcome a particular academic challenge.



Dwight’s commitment to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program ensures academic excellence always goes hand-in-hand with service learning and leadership training. Through academic, civic, team, and individual exploration, students develop valuable leadership skills. They perform local and global community service that will help them succeed in the next phase of their lives as students, community members, and world leaders.



Dwight School Seoul is located in Seoul’s Digital Media City, the Silicon Valley of South Korea. The award-winning D&B Architecture firm designed the 200,000-square-foot campus, which features two indoor gymnasiums, an outdoor soccer field, playground and basketball court, two large media rooms, a two-story library, two acoustic music classrooms with eight individual rehearsal rooms, and a 400-seat performing arts center.
