These opportunities include graphic design and publishing, creating blogs and websites, media broadcasting in Dwight’s AV broadcasting studio, digital photography, film-making, virtual collaboration with Google apps, real-time video conferencing, 3D computer animation with a Motion Capture Suit, library management using Destiny Quest LMS, composition of digital music, and more.

Learning Support

Learning support offered

The system of support is called Quest, and it involves one-on-one instruction, small group work, therapies and liaison. Some students require additional support and are identified according to standards set by the curriculum. A student’s needs are met by the class/subject teachers, usually by modifying the task. Dwight School uses the expertise of Learning Support/Quest teachers, and Individual Education Plans are drawn up in consultation with parents.
