Welcome to Annie Wright Schools!
While this web site will give you a sense of our schools' history, programs and mission, I encourage you to visit the Annie Wright campus to witness firsthand the professionalism and care demonstrated by the faculty and the warmth of our community.
Since 1884, Annie Wright Schools have provided a distinctive, academic education, first for the daughters of the pioneers of the Pacific Northwest and, more lately, for the sons and daughters of Tacoma, the United States and the wider world. The needs of both boys and girls are met through the Preschool through Grade 5 Lower School and Grades 6-8 Middle School, while the Upper School's full boarding, five-day boarding and day programs serve girls only in Grades 9-12.
We provide a challenging, balanced program that helps our young men and women reach their academic potential. We are proud that, through small class sizes, differentiated instruction and engagement of our faculty, every student at Annie Wright is well-known and treated as an individual. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, we aspire to develop in our students a global perspective and understanding of their place in the world.
Call, email, visit. We are looking forward to sharing our passion for Annie Wright Schools with you.
