This school is pretty cool. As a student, I can say that I may be biased, but I believe that A. E. Wright is a far better school than A. C. Stelle. When A. C. Stelle was created, all the teachers who were newer to A. E. Wright has to move to Stelle. Therefore, the teachers at A. E. Wright are far more experienced. Like any other school A. E. Wright has a few bad teachers, but also is proud to have some amazing teachers. Unfortunately, many of the teachers are retiring, including the fantastic music teacher, director, conductor, etc., Mr. Leff.
I totally love this school! it is so cool. I also love my teachers because they teach so well! I never want to leave this school! I love a.E. Wright middle school!
My child is in the 'Gifted and Talented' program and has a few good teachers, 1 great teacher and his math teacher has got to be the most uninspiring that I have known. After putting three other children through the public school system, I can say with some authority this school may get the test scores, but the students don't seem as enthusiastic and inspired as I have seen in many other, far less affluent schools.
My child attends AE Wright, and it is a fabulous school! This is a great school. The teachers are caring and work very hard to provide the best education they can. The art department is excellent, and so is the music department. The students received over 900 for their API last year on the STAR test.
Having recently attended 'back to school night' at A.E. Wright last week I must say I am extremely unimpressed with this school. I met with all of my child's teachers and her councilor and after a month of classes only one knew who she was! The school is over-crowded and communication is poor.
Had high hoped for this school with small number of students. Big disappointment. My child started in 6th grade as a/b student. Now leaving 8th grade as C-D student. Counselors are of little help. Communication acces to teachers poor. Poor sports if your child is athletic.
Below average school with a very little amount of good teachers. I am very disappointed in this school.
Great school. My 8th and 6th graders love it. Experienced teachers. High quality students. Strong reading program. 1 mile fitness run in Tuesday gym class. Interesting afterschool classes in fall and spring. Strong math program. Honor Society students get fun overnight field trips. Can't speak to cafeteria food, my boys carry their lunches. 2nd set of textbooks issued to each student for home use.
I think this school is ok. I think the lunches are terrible. My child comes home starving after school.
Great physical education options for student. Safe school, little or no student discipline issues. Teachers and administration are fairly responsive to parent inquiries. Excellent ciriculum. Good nutrition options for lunch. Our child really enjoys A.E. Wright.
We love this school. Teachers have been great. Classwork seems intersting, not too much homework. Principal and counselors seem caring and concerned about the kids and are open to listening to the parents. My child is very happy, is doing great and we are happy too. This is a great school.
The school is being divided into two schoolsl which will meet the needs of the students. AE Wright will now have about 890 students. Budget cuts are the reason for larger class size, but teacher education and meeting the CA Standards are of utmost importance to the school.
This school is far too over crowded to provide the quality of education students in this area deserve. The tax base has to be incredible, yet we have 35 children in a classroom.
