Welcome to the Upper School
As the oldest all-girls school in the Pacific Northwest, Annie Wright Upper School has a rich and respected heritage of educating young women. For girls in grades nine through 12 who are ready to develop authentic passions and make a well-rounded education a priority, Annie Wright offers an extraordinary and enduring educational experience based around four experiential pillars:
1) The All-Girls Experience
Walk through our doors or explore our web site and you will see girls actively involved in their own education, girls in all the leadership positions, girls developing singular and strong voices that they are unafraid to use, powerfully and persuasively, throughout their lives. Here at Annie Wright, we focus on girls...and only girls.
2) The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program
Widely considered the world's most rigorous high school curriculum, the IB Diploma Program is at the heart of our students' educational experience. Student inquiry, intellectual risk-taking, and international mindedness highlight the school day and ensure our students are well-prepared for college and beyond.
3) College and SAT-ACT Preparation
The immediate result of an Annie Wright education for our graduates is matriculation into college or university. We help each girl find the most selective college for her interests. Built into our program are individualized college counseling and SAT/ACT test prep, highlighted by our seven-day college tour for 11th graders and our weekly SAT/ACT practice tests.
As proud as we are of our academics, we know there's more to life than schoolwork. Therefore, we help each girl identify her passions and then demonstrate those passions in a public arena. Built directly into the daily schedule, our activities program requires students to hone their passions and "perform" regularly throughout the school year.
