D-E 360° Hosts The World Game at Dwight-Englewood School
We are entering very interesting times politically across the globe. Cross-cultural learning experiences are uniquely capable of building in our students skills and perspectives that help them become global citizens and leaders. We also remain convinced that the students we serve will be our future leaders, as well as represent the change we all wish to see in the world — and in our home communities too. Our shared goal is to develop in students a global literacy.
D-E 360° is excited to host the World Game again this year at Dwight-Englewood School for 5th and 6th graders in the Modell’s Sports Complex on January 22, 2018 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM. The World Game is an exciting large-group world problem-solving simulation, which allows 150 gifted and talented students to actively participate in attempting to solve some of the world’s most vexing problems. A range of levels in this game challenges elementary school students through college faculty members. The results vary from year-to-year, but some outcomes emerge each time – excited involvement, new understandings of the complexities of the problems, and the collaborative strategies essential for our long-term well-being.

Dwight-Englewood School is a selective coeducational college preparatory day school now serving talented students Pre-school through 12th grade from over 80 communities in Bergen and Hudson counties in New Jersey, and southern Rockland County and New York City in the state of New York. Designated by the U.S. Department of Education as an “Exemplary Secondary School,” it brought together the traditions of the Dwight School for Girls, founder in 1889, and the Englewood School for Boys, begun in 1928, when the two schools merged in 1973. Dwight-Englewood stresses excellence in academics, with students earning credit for college-level courses each year through Advanced Placement offerings in all academic disciplines. The school also offers the development of human values within the school community and the larger world beyond through the study of ethics and the fulfillment of a community service requirement, as well as through participation in a wide range of artistic, athletic, political, and social activities.Click Here to Register
