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!!!!

Thank you Stafford County for starting my children's year her in Stafford with something to look forward to!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
