Lower School

Kindergarten-Grade 5

Our Kindergarten-Grade 5 teachers discover, nurture, and celebrate the unique gifts of every student. We recognize that students learn in a variety of ways, and our teaching offers each girl and each boy many avenues to understand concepts and experience success. Our inquiry-based learning program engages kids and makes them excited about learning. In addition to this outstanding academic program, Annie Wright offers small classes, Spanish, lab science, swimming, an excellent before- and after-school program and much, much more.

Annie Wright is an International Baccalaureate World School and delivers the IB's Primary Years Programme for Preschool to Grade 5. The PYP is a flexible curriculum that addresses children’s needs holistically, focusing on developing them as inquirers, both in the classroom and the outside world. Learn more about the PYP.
"Annie Wright's curriculum, small class size and differentiated approach were just what my son needed to be challenged. Now he is excited about school and learning."
