Parent affinity groups affirm the school’s mission to embrace diversity by raising cultural awareness, offering cultural celebrations, and hosting educational programs. These groups collaborate with each other frequently and host yearly multicultural events for the entire Dwight-Englewood School community. The parent-led, culturally-based affinity groups at D-E operate under the umbrella of the Parent Association and help foster parent engagement across the school community in support of the School’s values and vision. These parent groups offer support spaces for parents who want to be connected culturally and to share their heritage and experiences in the D-E community.
There are currently six active affinity groups as follows:
- Asian-American Affinity Group
- Black Affinity Group
- Chinese Affinity Group
- Korean Affinity Group
- Latino Affinity Group
- South Asian Affinity Group
