Annie Wright students from Preschool to Grade 12 love to learn, and at the heart of their learning is inquiry. Asking questions, generating creative ideas, and developing solutions to real world problems are central to their experience. In IB programs throughout the school, students observe, explore, make connections and take action. Learning is personal, and all students have the opportunity to focus on what they love. Annie Wright's amazing teachers serve as guides, mentors, advocates and fellow learners.

Whether exploring colors in Preschool Spanish, designing life-enhancing apps in Middle School, or studying Environmental Systems & Societies in Upper School, Gators are ignited by inquiry. As the only school offering IB programs for age 3 through to graduation, Annie Wright is at the forefront of inquiry-based education. Our community is what makes this extraordinary experience possible - attracting world class faculty, keeping classes small, and creating a sense of belonging. Join the community effort to promote inquiry and support students who will go on to make a profound difference in the world:
