    I am a student there right now and I am in the 8th grade . They made this new rule and its called A day and B day thats just for highschool and we have to do it . My teachers are all so boring and make learning like the worst part of school .(Even thought the food is really bad ] And when I tried t change my related Arts classes cause I was tired of having the same class they rejected my request but said yes to another girl . Which was not right at all . So far Im ok . But I cant wait to get out of the school ! But I did like my seventh and sixth grade years . (

    I am so glad that I read these reviews! Many were written by current and former students. It is scary to see both bad spelling and sentence structure. My grandchild was suppose to start this year but was accepted at another school. If students can not compose a simple sentence how can they function in the work force? Maybe if the parents worked a little harded then the children won't suffer from these shortfalls. After all they are our future!

    i had a horrible experience in this school last year. Principals are very unprofessional and have no regards what so ever for the safety of the children. food service was unexcaptiple; i can't post what i saw in this page. I hope metro board of eduacation intervene this situation and replace all principles and food services in this school because our children deserves better than what i saw in wright middle school.

    i have had very few problems with Wright MS. the teachers seem to really care about their students and the new principal (mr. haynie i think) seems really involved with all of the positive changes that are taking place in the school! my older sons attended the school in years past and you can see a difference from then to now. there are less behavior problems now and the teachers and parents seem more involved and informed with what is going on there. the teachers i particularly remember being really good for my boys were Ms. Witherspoon and Ms. Anderson for 8th grade and the PE teachers especially Coach Weeks! he seems to really care about the students and he puts a great importance on being active and healthy. ms. rankin is also very helpful to the students. i can't comment on any other issues with the school.

    I've been there. It's a terrible school. I've learned almost nothing from this place. I changed schools and that may have been the best decision of my life! In my new school I make straight A's and I've been rewarded for my theories with the Pythagorean Thereom. I'm in 8th grade currently and have recieved a 20/25 on my EXPLORE test here. I've also been put into advanced classes. Wright didn't help me at all to accompolish and/or learn anything. The teachers don't really care about you (except for a few) and the food is disgusting. Just a little bit of honesty can help.

    Wright has improved so much with the new principal and assistant principal. Thank God! I do wish that the school would spend as much time rewarding and encouraging the good students as they do the sports teams. But overall so much improvement! Now if Glencliff would just do the same...

    I am a former student from WMS. I went there all through my middle school years. I honestly don t see why some people are complaining! I loved that school.And yes the food wasn't always that great. But atleast it was half way decent.(All though it was my least favorite part!) There's no reason to complain about 'The food is gone by the end of the day' It's not there fault. Also the teachers there are complete amazement's. I love them and visit them often! They really care about us.

    I went to Wright Middle School from 2002-2005 for the 6th-8th grade and I am surprised and tickled to see this parent below me complain about the food being gone at the end of the day. When I attended this school I ate at the end of the lunch period and there was never any food left then. I honestly don't think it's the school's fault but that issue should have been solved a long time ago. I also agree that there are some great guidance workers and teachers there too. They helped me get into the great school I attend now with the belief in me and their encouragement.

    My son has been going to Wright for four yrs. now. He has been bully the whole time! His principal doesn't really do anything about it. The office workers are no count. The staff that works in the cafeteria need more training. They are very unprofessional. I am not talking about the cooks or the ladies that work the lunch lines either. Although by the time my son eats lunch pretty much all the food is gone. So if your are zoned for this school just make sure you make your presence known! By the way we have enjoyed the teachers. The guidence workers are very helpful.

    I'm a student at Wright and I would like to say that I've been going there for two years(going into my third).And scence I've been going there I've had/seen some of the best teachers students and faculty support.Yes some of the older student pick on some of the younger students.But thats going to be at every school you go to.Our school has a progran where you read for thirty minuts every wendesday.Where else are you going to find a school that cares that much?Another thing I would like to talk about is our principal Mrs.Kim Finch.She cares so much about us.She walks down the hall every morning to see in every student is getting to there class.The last to things I would like to talk about is our music groups and the trips we take .We have the best best music teachers!Our strings teacher took us to Atlanta to play for judges we won first place!

    This school is a terrible school. My daughter has attended the school for two years now and will be attending another next year. The lack of recourse for disipline problems are many. My daughter has been the prime target for bullying and threats and the admin brush off my concerns. If you have a choice do not send your kids here. Choose a magnet school!

    I have had two boys attend Wright and currently only the youngest still goes there. I have had trouble getting resolutions in the past with problems and definately had troubles with a few of the teachers. With that said I have found that the guidence staff is wonderful and one of the principals is outstanding when dealing with students. It is because of him that I recently requested a special transfer to place my child back into this school. I do wish there was more chances for parental involvement with this school.

    I visit the school often and most of the time you will see a problem before you make it inside. I think there is a problem with older students picking on the younger ones and by what i see alot of the teachers and office staff are really not trying to correct the problem. I do not feel as good as I should having my children attend Wright Middle. The occasions that I have mentioned my concerns I felt my concerns were just dismissed. I will be glad to see my children move on to another school.

    My son is a fifth grader at Wright and I must say that I am impressed with the school. I was apprehensive about him attending Middle School at such a young age; however the teachers have been great! There is even an after school tutoring program for free! Lots of activities including sports band and strings and for once I can safely say my son 'enjoys' the food choices that the school offers.
