Opinion : actually wanted to give no stars... Conclusion: Very Poor school system. IB philosophy itself is great but how it’s been practiced in this school is in my opinion not in line with the philosophy. Just to name a few, grading system is not clear nor transparent. It is not even well explained to students. Some Teachers are also confused of Dwight Seoul IB School System. This really discourages students. Not worth spending your money here for IB education. Do not be mislead. Please take a look around few big schools in Korea and compare how those other schools run their school system for students. Then decide. Also, when in doubt it’s not worth discussing issues with the Dwight Seoul nor try to understand how Dwight Seoul runs its school system. Just transfer to another school and save your time and energy for the best interest of your child.

Do not send your kids here. When visitors arrive; we are taught to be on our best behavior. The teachers are biased, the head board is biased, they dont care about your mental health and they are in it for the money. They do not care about their students, and it shows. My mental health has been the worst. Nobody will believe you; they give unfair punishments and are hypocrites. I would give this 0 stars.

One of the best International school in seoul. No doubt it is expensive. Highly qualified International staff from different countries serves their best with modern facilities. School provides three IB programs. Very co operative staff and friendly envoirment.

I go to Dwight School Seoul, the school system has flexibility and it is diverse. This school has other Dwight Schools around the world, so we can connect with them too. We are international and care for everybody. If you are looking for a new school - as a Dwight student, I recommend here. Because it is different than other schools. - 20th, February, 2018, Jason Kim, 6B.

Very bad school. Doesn’t care about the quality of teachers and just puts in people that are the cheapest pay. Also doesn’t care for students’ college acceptances, and thinks college is not important in the future of students. If you want your child to get into a top university, Dwight is not the choice for you.
