E.L. Wright Middle School Reviews

2 reviews
I'm an 8th-grade LAW (magnet) student, and my experience here has been ordinary overall. Firstly, the academics are satisfactory, though 8th grade has been a huge leap! It's much more challenging than 6th and 7th, so you really need to study. A few teachers should have chosen a different career, but most are encouraging, funny, and willing to help. As for the school's features, it isn't that hard to navigate, though there should be more time to transition between classes. The food is acceptable; the bathrooms are squalid. School spirit is good. There's not much diversity, but that's never been a problem. Once in a while, people come for college readiness. Administration is okay, but there have been a whole lot of fights- this school isn't the safest. I'm only in one club and we always have trouble finding a room, but other clubs seem appealing. Slow computers; raggedy textbooks. Students will vary. This school certainly has its flaws, but I don't regret coming here.

E.L. Wright was pretty average overall. I made some amazing friends and was introduced to one of my favorite sports to play.
