Philosophy & Approach

General School Mission

"The education of Annie Wright students takes place in the context of our strong community and rich history. The acceptance of a student into our school community brings with it our responsibility to honor the individual journey of that student. Our teachers notice, nurture, and celebrate the unique gifts of every student. We recognize that students learn in a variety of ways - verbally, visually, and kinesthetically. We recognize that boys and girls often learn differently and have individual needs at several stages of their development. Therefore, our teaching offers each student, each girl and each boy, many avenues to understand concepts and experience success. Well-educated students at Annie Wright have had the opportunity to understand their own cognitive, social and emotional strengths, and know how to use this learning to promote their own growth throughout their lives. Our students develop skills to participate thoughtfully as members of the Annie Wright School community and to fulfill their role as citizens of the local and global community.
