Annie Wright Schools Reviews

The faculty and staff at this school are incredible and hard-working! It's unfortunate, however, that they are woefully unappreciated and undervalued by the administration. The admin's main focus is to make money, and thus run the school like a corporation, completely ignoring the needs of the people who keep that place running.

The teachers at the Annie Wright Upper School vary in quality of teaching. The math department is strong and has varied teachers to suit the learning styles of different students. The math levels also range all the way up to a challenging Calculus course; according to most students, they love the math teacher and the deans of the Upper School are very available to talk about switching classes to meet student need, in all departments (although this is mostly true for math classes). The science department is very much the same, and the teachers in this department engage students on an amazing level! The humanities department, in terms of quality, ranges greatly. The literature teachers are consistent and engaging, and many students enjoy their classes. The history department seems to be the greatest barrier, as many students complain about the teaching methods and lack of engagement. However, the history department, in my experience, is very helpful in preparing for the major IB assessment at the end of each year. The language department is also varied in terms of quality. From my experience and comments made by fellow classmates, French was a disappointment in the lack of preparation. Spanish has mixed reviews. However, everyone I have talked to seems to love their Chinese teacher, myself included. I would highly recommend taking Chinese if you are planning on going to this school.
Both my children attend Annie Wright. My daughter is in the upper school and is excelling because of the rigorous academics that push her but more importantly because of a staff that cares. The school has an amazing program that caters to children with depression, anxiety and other issues. We did not know this when we enrolled but found out when we needed it most. The school administration is amazing at providing the support to help her succeed.
