The Dwight Schools are a leading global network of International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools. Dwight School Hanoi will synergise Dwight’s 150-year legacy of academic excellence – pioneering in the IB – to carry out the most advanced co-education programme from preschool to twelfth grade.
Dwight School Hanoi will be situated on a 35,000-square-metre campus and located in the prime location of The Manor Central Park – a premier high-class urban area in central Hanoi.
The school campus boasts state-of-the-art architecture designed by world-leading architect Carlos Zapata. In Vietnam, Zapata is known as the designer of Bitexco Financial Tower – one of 25 symbolic towers around the world – and the JW Marriott Hotel.

Bitexco Group chairman Vu Quang Hoi said that he had been working to identify the right education partner to create the best educational environment for Hanoi in particular and for Vietnam in general.
He stated, “I want to bring to Vietnam a school that offers preschool to high school with the most advanced facilities and best programmes. I also want this school to be the cradle of outstanding leaders, scientists, and managers who will become the future of the country and bring Vietnam further on to the world map.”

Representative of The Dwight Schools, chancellor Stephen Spahn, appreciates having Hoi as Bitexco Group’s companion. All Dwight Schools are dedicated to igniting the spark of genius in every child. This mission rests on the three pillars of personalised learning, community, and a global vision.
“As a member of The Dwight Schools global network, students in Hanoi will enjoy numerous cross-campus curricular and creative collaborations with their peers around the world, have the opportunity to spend a trimester or year on any Dwight campus, and the ability to transfer seamlessly to any Dwight School should their family relocate,” said Spahn.
