Message from the Head of School

Welcome to Dwight School Dubai, a vibrant International Baccalaureate World School authorised to offer three programs from PreK to Grade 12 – the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP). As a school we are committed to providing high quality holistic education in a supportive, caring and collaborative learning environment. 

Our school is rooted in a long history of innovation in education dating back to the founding of Dwight School (New York) in 1872. With campuses in New York, Seoul, Shanghai, London and Dubai, as well as our Dwight Global Online School, each Dwight School shares the same commitment to igniting the spark of genius in every child. 

I have been a passionate educator for 20 years, starting as a Business and Economics teacher, before moving into senior leadership positions in two UK schools. In 2011, I moved to Abu Dhabi to join an international school, in its foundation year, as Vice Principal. I then spent six successful years at the same school as the Principal. 

As Head of Dwight School Dubai, I have the honor of continuing Dwight's legacy of innovation, community and personalised learning. I recognise that universities and employers seek articulate, balanced, creative, high achieving learners and leaders who will continue to contribute positively to the local and wider community. Our broad and enriching curriculum is designed to reflect this and give every child the platform to achieve their academic and personal goals. In essence, Dwight students are locally educated; internationally minded.

I invite you to explore our website for more information and to visit our wonderful school in person.

We look forward to meeting you!

With best wishes,

David Hutson
