    R.Wright is a elementary school my kids been going there for years. It now goes up to 6th grade. It is a ok behaviorial school but some of the teachers dont have a great way if teaching but it made AYP. also its a good enviorment for the children with Ms.Aniita Duke and Ms. Gwendolyn Bagget they make the kids more interested in school with the talent shows and any other fun programs after school program and other stuff. i do recommend this school to the younger kids but from 5-6 kinda but you going to have to worry about the kids jealously toward your child. Sort of like a pubity stage.
