    The move comes after Seoul City selected the New York-based Dwight School as the preferred negotiator in May 2010 for its project to attract renowned foreign educational institutes to the capital. It was selected from 180 foreign candidate schools.

    The opening of the school will be good news for foreigners planning to invest in Seoul as it is expected to provide a better educational environment for their children.

    Established in 1872, the Dwight School opened its first overseas branch in London in 1927. It was also the first American school to launch overseas branches. The school currently runs branches in three foreign countries, including Beijing (2005) in China and Victoria (2009) in Canada.
