    My daughter graduated this middle school and she liked it a lot. I like the fact that it is a small middle school compared to others in the county. The Music program is AMAZING especially Band. Great School!

    The curriculum sports music and extra student and knowledge enhancements are wonderful. This year my daughter is going into the 7th grade and we couldn't be happier with her development both inside the school and out. The Principal has been to every after school function I have ever been a part of...which are quite a few with sports music and other events. He must work 70 hours a week. His commitment to the students and his leadership to the faculty are always on display. I am looking forward to my other daughter making her way through this school in the next few years. May the trend continue.

    Very involved teachers and principal/vice-principal. The 8th grade has the ability to get high school credit or take languages at the high school. Positive environment.

    This is my 7th grader's second year in the area and at AGW. We are military. He absolutely LOVES this school and all of the teachers he's had so far (I worried that moving out of state at age 11 was going to be tough for him). The school principal is this years' "Stafford County Principal of the YEAR" which says a lot about the school (I've also heard that he's a former NFL player!!). They still have "A" day as mentioned in another review from 2009. Every "A" on the report card gets each student an entry into a drawing for great prizes (gift cards to the movies gamestop a computer tablet). In 7th grade they also have neat system where the kids can read job descriptions apply for jobs (Banker attendance officer etc all at different pay rates) and recieve Americana money (play money). They can use the money to bid on silent auction items donated and they can also bring in items to auction off. If they want to change jobs they ask to resign and then have an opportunity fill out an application for a new job. I can't say enough good things about AG Wright. Everyone I've encountered has been professional welcoming and friendly.

    I recently attended this school in the 07-08 school year and it was awsome!!!! The teachers are nice(well most of them) and its a really fun atmosphere. Every time you get your report card they have this reward session where you have a chance to win cool prizes like a dvd player and mp3 and gift certificates and much more! The electives at this school are great too!! I loved art and drama! Mrs. Ellinger was a great inspiring art teacher and Mr. Lane the drama teacher is so much fun and his drama class is what makes me miss that school so much. Go Tigers!!!!

I can't wait till my eight year-old joins this school in about a couple moere years. Recently moving to this county is something that my family will take into gratitude for. Thank you Stafford County for starting my children's year her in Stafford with something to look forward to!
