While the principal is nice, as a parent, I have found many things lacking about this school, from the curriculum to the quality of teachers. Moreover, my child was bullied on the basis of his race, and this is not the first time this school has had such challenges in the past. There is even a video, posted by kids, that demonstrates this ignorance.

Thank goodness I am almost done with this school. I have spent 3 dreadful years here. The teachers here are horrible because all they want is their monthly pay check. Also, the principal is sexist. In her 6 years of being a principal, she only hired one male teacher. Also, if a teacher is friends with the principal, she won't get fired. No matter what she does, she will stay at the school if she's friends with the principal. There is this little circle of teacher friends that think that their all that. Also, the kids have their way of bullying that teacher don't understand. It is not talked about in this bullying program that is usless. Also, we have to write essays in every class twice a semester. (Even in PE) because the principal wants us to write more. Instead of writing, how about we LEARN more. Also, this school stresses PE way too much. We run 2 1/2 miles every Tuesday. PE is broadcasted as more important than academics. Your GPA will be affected if you have a B in PE. Overall, do not send your kids here.

DON'T GO TO AEWRIGHT. Worst school ever!! The teachers hate their jobs and just want the monthly pay check and good test scores. It is a complete joke. The school dances are poorly funded and are NOT fun. The kids are snobby and VERY perverted. I came into aewright not cussing at all and come out knowing every curse word on the planet because of these kids. And another thing is you can't express your individuality. Everyone dresses the same in their exspensive slutty outfits and they expect everyone else to be like them. I've been called many names by the kids. One child told his PE teacher he would commit suicide if he didn't meet the unbeatable state standard mile cut off time. Then he failed and the teacher did not care when he told her while crying. I have spent 3 dreadful years at this school and do not advise it for anyone. The best compromise is to home school so ur kept away from the corrupt school systems. :)

Hi, my cousin came here for 6 & 7th grade. He said his experience here was horrible. His PE teacher called him a "fat baby" and invaded his privacy by looking on through his phone. My aunt took this up with the principal and she took the PE teacher's side. There were also many problems with bullying (kids are NOT just being kids). My aunt was furious with A.E. Wright and pulled him out of there. My cousin is now attending A.C. Stelle and is having a much better time.

Looking back on AE Wright (2012 graduate; I am now at Westlake High), I can say that I just wish I could come back here for one day to relive the old experience. This is mostly because I really miss my teachers (with the exception of a few whom I strongly despised with a passion) and friends as most of them have gone on to Agoura High. There are some bullying problems that went on here, and the new program did little to fix them. Nonetheless, I managed to find my circle of friends. Academically, I rarely felt challenged; it was ridiculously easy to earn an "A" in the significant majority of my honors classes, but that's just how middle school is. One inevitable problem at the school: the administration. The worst in all of California. It constantly sets a double standard based on wealth and gender and rarely solves problems amongst the student body. For example, if you are on permit, you may suffer just as I did. If you are male and a female files a complaint about you, it immediately assumed that it is your fault. Overall, in spite of some problems, AE Wright undoubtedly was a great experience that I wish I took advantage of more now that I look back as a sophomore. <3 Peace AEW!

A.E. Wright can be one of your worst and best school experiences. If you're looking for a public school because you cannot afford private school, however, AEW really can be a great option. Despite this, many teachers are awful and simply boring. With a few exceptions, like the 8th grade Algebra honors teacher, 7th grade science teacher, and the GATE 8th grade social studies teacher, I loathed almost every teacher I had while I was at AEW. I would say that my 8th grade GATE social studies teacher, for example, was very funny; however, frequently, it got out of control, and her teaching methods weren't perfect but good enough, while my 8th GATE English teacher was a nightmare and was incredibly unfair with grading. She despised everyone, excluding a few goody-goody teacher's pets she loved. The school truly has gone from a good one to a bad one, with virtually all of the school's decent teachers retiring in the past two years. If you can go to AC Stelle, I recommend going there instead. Overall, I would say that I did enjoy my AE Wright experience, but it was mostly because I was with many friends...There are some definite issues that need to be resolved by the school itself.


Posted September 1, 2012

the school is good just the science and social studies program subjects are not really organized subjects for the 6th grade but the after school programs are good they stay until 5:30 this year they might stay until 6:30 thats when theyll feed them dinner supposedly

This school has gone from really good, to really bad, I'm an 8th grader here at AE Wright and have been here for 2 years. For one, the teachers are HORRIBLE, now I know people say "You're always going to have bad teachers" But they seriously have no idea what they're doing. I would suggest Lindero Canyon Middle school as I've visited and they're school was clean and no body started fights or anything. AE Wright's Principle is the worst principle I've EVER had. She's the wicked witch of the west, I'm not kidding. They'res no parent involvement and if you have bad grades they help you for about a week and then they just leave it to you. If your child has a disability like ADD or ADHD or Dyslexia they won't care, I've brought in a note for my ADD (from my doctor) and even when I can't pay very good attention I get punished for it. I highly HIGHLY suggest you look at another school, they trick you at first making you think it's a great school by getting a 10/10 but I would give this school a -2/10 just because the 7th grade science teacher makes everyone's day, the Drama teacher is amazing aswell, PE is no good. Thanks for reading my review, please don't pick this school.

My Son was at Sierra Canyon, we moved him over to this district a few years ago- We Love this school!

THE MOST HORRIBLE SCHOO EVER...I WISH I HAD NEVER PLACED MY CHILD AT THIS SCHOOL. THE PRINCIPLE IS A WITCH AND NOT HELPFULL TO PARENTS AT ALL. THE TEACHERS ON THE OTHERHAND ARE FANTASTIC.

I disagree with the parents who think this school is great. Maybe it is for others, but we have had nothing but problems with the special education program here. Without going into tons of details, which probably would not be posted anyway, suffice it to say that this school has totally failed my child who has special needs. She is now at an NPS school doing much better and is happy and this district would rather pay their attorneys several hundred dollars an hour to fight with us in IEP meetings. We are very lucky that we have money to fight back. For anyone else, BEWARE! Hire an attorney and let the school know that you will fight for your child.

Love the school! Our family was at Sierra Canyon for several years, & has a student that graduated from Sierra. I can compare these schools apples to apples. We now feel like we wasted our money in private school. My student is in the Gate program, & learning at a much faster rate than in Private School- There is no grade inflation at AE Wright, it is up to your student to earn those A s!

My son is entering 7th grade.Overall last year was a good year. All the teachers but one were great. The kids are not getting a lot of homework in 6th grade, the school believes in a transition year after elementary, so they don't bombard the kids with homework. I was told that 7th grade is different, that they get much more homework. My son learned a lot, he specially liked science and math subjects. The band is pretty good too.

I feel like this school could use some more improvement on the campus and other things. Of course, all LVUSD schools should provide a good education.


Posted February 26, 2011

My son's science teacher is awesome. His LASS teacher is phenominal. She really cares are her students and loves to teach. His PE teacher should join the military and become a drill sergeant! She treats her students like prisoners. It is obvious that she hates her job. My son hates going to his PE class, and this is a kid who is super atheletic!! This is very sad to see. School is what you make of it but this school is difficult because administration keeps you are arms lentgh with little to no communication. You get recorded messages but don't you dare call the office to speak to a real person. I give this school a 6 rating not a 10....just my opinion;)

We are doubly fortunate because we can afford private school, but we live in the Las Virgenes school district and choose to send our daughter to A E Wright. We like the diversity of the student population (well, as diverse as you can get in this area) and the class sizes are not outrageous, considering the budget cuts that keep challenging the school administrators every year. We also know that no matter how much you pay for a private school, you can get horrible teachers there, and you can get lucky and have wonderful teachers in a public elementary or middle school. This has been our experience so far in the LVUSD. Lupin Hill and A E Wright have been a pleasant surprise. Great leadership, great teachers. Parents should get more involved, though. The same ten parents do all the volunteering.

I've been a student here for 2 yrs. All I have to say is that AEW has a very low GATE requirement. I practically failed the GATE test, but I still got in. I would definitely suggest that you put your child into the GATE program or let them take the test at least. The bathroom stinks. It's not even funny how bad it smells. A handful of teachers don't treat the students with respect. I except the teachers to control the students and teach without having to yell "Shut up" or call students vulgar words. Some teachers here act like your friend. I hate those kind of teachers since most of the time they can't control the class and the chance to learn is ended. I don't personally know the principal, but I think she's doing a good job mostly. There are some areas that I would definitely improve about the school, but overall this is an okay school. It's not as great as everyone says it is. A lot of the smarter students don't seem smart at all. You would think that a person is your typical trouble-maker, but he might actually be the smartest person in class. The music program at our school is pretty superb. I'm not part of the band but the music they play at concerts is amazing.

AE Wright has a wonderful program for Special Education. The teachers truly care and focus on life/social skills in addition to academics which is so vital in preparation for high school and beyond. The team is helpful, accessible and very responsive. Thank you all for your dedication! Sincerely, Sheryl Hai-Ami

A.E. Wright challenges kids to be leaders and be the best. This is a great place for a student to receive top notch public instruction!

Principal leadership is very strong! no nonsense and old fashion politics... The students are there to learn and the teachers are there to do their job.. to teach. perfect size for middle school not to large and large enough. I really think AE wright is one (the only public school for sure) of the best schools today in the LA area.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
