    I transferred my children to this school and have been very pleased and believe it to be a safe great school. Good teachers and an active Principal. My children attended there for the first year 12/13 school year. We will be staying!

    My child has had nothing but problems every since the 2011-2012 school year started with a new principal and new school counselor. I am thinking seriously about pulling my child out and home schooling till the next school year starts. This used to be the best school but now the school doesn't function well at all.

    My daughter has been at Wright since Pre-K and now is in 3rd Grade. I love the school and the teachers but wish parents would be more active with the PTA and projects for the kids.

    My son is attending pre-k in Ms. Virden's class. He enjoys being there. I enjoy talking with both Ms. Virden and Ms. Bailey. They are open for questions and are very encouraging to me. Principal McCain is very personable and has also been very welcoming to our family. We feel right at home at Wright.

    I transferred my children here from Catoosa public schools because one of my children is deaf and Wright offers one of the few deaf ed programs in the area. This school has been a breath of fresh air after having my kids in a lesser quality school district. The teachers and staff really go above and beyond I can't sing their praises enough!
