“We Are Dwyer” strives to shape our community’s future leaders by fostering diverse enrichment opportunities for our students, limited only by imagination and not financial restriction.

The Foundation has articulated a three-pronged initiative:  development of the fine arts, capital improvements, and educational enhancements.

Who are we?


We are academics:

William T. Dwyer High School, located in Palm Beach Gardens, FL provides a rich academic program to challenge and pique the interest in all kinds of students. Our school prides itself on its:

  1. Traditional, multi-tracked high school curriculum
  2. Fully accredited International Baccalaureate (IB) Program
  3. Academy of Finance
  4. Early Childhood and Teacher Education
  5. Army JROTC
  6. Construction Academy
  7. Culinary Arts Academy

We are athletics:

Our students participate in a wide range of sports on all levels. We believe a healthy body contributes to a healthy mind, and that sports teach discipline, leadership and builds camaraderie. We are proud of our competitive success, most recently punctuated in 2013 by our football team securing its second State Championship in three years.

We are extracurriculars:

We believe that work done outside the classroom is vital to the educational experience. Our students compete and travel in a wide range of clubs and honor societies. The ability to travel and compete with peers both around and outside of the state is also a vital part of a high school student’s growth. The development of future leaders, artists, scientists, business professionals and public servants depends on an ability to engage in life-shaping experiences outside the classroom.

We value equity, diversity and inclusion:

The “We Are Dwyer” Foundation does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religious beliefs or lack of one, gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or socio-economic status in any of its activities or operations. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment and experience for our membership, school staff, students, parents, volunteers, and vendors.
