Launched in the Fall of 2015, D-E 360° is one of four divisions of Dwight-Englewood School, offering open-enrollment courses for enrichment, advancement, or for credit. Courses are designed to be multidisciplinary in nature offering learning across a variety of disciplines for different age groups (including adults).
D-E 360° offerings are designed to enhance learning outside of typical school hours, including during weekends and after-school timeframes, in a dynamic environment with small learning group sizes. Facilitated by expert instructors from both within the D-E School community and trusted organizations, D-E 360° courses are targeted primarily at students in preschool to grade twelve. Some offerings require specific prerequisites and/or past experience in particular disciplines, and others are open to all students regardless of background.
Among the D-E 360° the core offerings are Lower School AfterCare & Enrichment (ACE), D-E International, DELTA (Dwight-Englewood Learning and Teaching Academy (for Adults), Strings MasterClasses, Winter/Spring Enrichment Workshops and Summer Connections. D-E 360° also coordinates the World Game for neighboring school Gifted & Talented Programs as well as serves the greater community with Saturday Enrichment Workshops.
Learn Boldly, which is central to our vision for D-E 360°, is built on D-E’s mission statement, core values, and Student as Learner tenets. We are cultivating in our learners a strong self awareness; we want learning to be experiential and hands-on; and we have institutional priorities to serve students in a way that prepares them to be literate about the world.
