U.S.’s Dwight School to open in Seoul

NEW YORK - The Dwight School, a prestigious private school headquartered in New York’s Manhattan, said Tuesday that it will open a campus in Seoul in September.

Approved by the Seoul Metropolitan Government in 2010, the Dwight International School Seoul is currently under construction in Sangam Digital Media City in western Seoul, which is promoted as a Korean version of Silicon Valley.

Established in 1872, the Dwight School launched its London campus in 1972, Beijing campus in 2005 and Vancouver Island campus in 2009.

The Seoul campus will enroll students in kindergarten through 12th grade and aims to have 540 students, with international students accounting for 80 percent of the student body.

The school’s reputation is reportedly reflected in excellent college placement. Yonhap
