Service & Action

Students in grades 6 – 10 are expected to engage in service as action activities; meaningful action created in response to the student’s own needs and the needs of others. The quality of each activity is measured by the student and their mentor against the following criteria:

  • Commitment
  • Leadership
  • Impact on the community
  • Spark of Genius

Students will write a reflection at the end of each activity and will complete a rubric, together with their mentor, measuring the quality of the activity completed. Each academic year culminates in a Service & Action exhibition where students will share their achievements with the wider Dwight community.

In keeping with the mission of the Dwight schools and the curriculum framework of the International Baccalaureate, Dwight Seoul has a Service & Action requirement for grades 6 – 10 where students are expected to show an increasing amount of initiative in sourcing and creating relevant and meaningful activities throughout the year.
