Dwight School Hanoi, a coeducational school for students in Preschool to Grade 12, will be situated on a state-of-the-art 35,000 m² campus in The Manor Central Park, an exciting new residential development and destination in central Hanoi, conveniently located off the 3rd ring road, alongside the 100-hectare Chu Van An park. The School campus is designed by the world-renowned architect Carlos Zapata and encompasses the most advanced campus and classroom technologies to promote inspiration, collaboration, and innovation for both students and faculty. The School features open architecture and stunning facilities, including collaborative spaces such as: the Spark of Genius Hall, the Tech and Design Center, makerspaces for all grades, a black box theater, 800-seat performing arts center, 2,000 m² of library space, a ceramics studio, a music conservatory and music technology rooms, two large indoor multi-sports halls, an advanced aquatics center and outdoor play spaces, areas for nature exploration, fields and courts, and an organic greenhouse. Students will make full use of these facilities daily, and will take great leaps forward in literacy, public speaking, critical thinking, complex problem-solving, mind-body understanding, digital citizenship, and the ability to work individually and in groups, truly equipping them for their future success.

The School is the newest addition to the Dwight family of schools, joining campuses in New York, London, Seoul, Shanghai, Dubai, and Dwight Global Online School. All students will benefit from ongoing exchange opportunities with other Dwight campuses, in addition to seamless study abroad. For all Vietnamese students, Dwight School Hanoi will offer Vietnamese Language Arts as a daily subject to support mother tongue language acquisition. The School's carefully selected and well-supported expert faculty will customize an educational path for every student based on individual interests and talents — all dedicated to Dwight's mission of igniting the spark of genius in every child.
