C. Milton is an awesome school! We have fun events like the pep rally, homecoming and the variety show- there’s always some school event going on. Attending all 4 years here was a great environment, we have very good athletic teams, my senior year we won two state championships just in the fall! I’m proud to have CMW as my Alma mater!

I moved to Maryland from California in the middle of my junior year. I was a little nervous to start at a new school, but C. Milton Wright was very welcoming. They made me feel comfortable and accepted from the very start. The administration was super helpful getting me into the right classes and class levels. My teachers were great about helping me readjust and to catch up in the classroom. They were willing to meet with me before and after school, whatever I needed to feel comfortable. I was able to start a club only a few months of me being there. I made life-long friends super fast. C. Milton Wright is an awesome school!
C Milton Wright provided me with many great opportunities to explore my learning in a deeper level. With many AP course options, I was able to better prepare myself for college while earning credits. The teachers truly invest in your life because they truly care about the person you are learning to become. Almost all the students are hardworking and driven individuals. Any concerns in my education at C Milton Wright we’re always addressed with the utmost respect and diligence. Being a transfer student in the 10th grade, I was scared to be entering a brand new environment but C Milton Wright welcomed me with open arms.
