Welcome From the Principal

Dr. Sharada Deaton   Principal

Dr. Sharada Deaton

Welcome to Wright Middle School where we are committed to exceeding great expectations at every turn! I am excited and honored to join this wonderful community as the Executive Principal. Our greatest strength is our diversity, with over 26 languages spoken within the building! It is our commitment to embrace this diversity and work together with our school community to increase the academic achievement of all students.

My vision is for Wright Middle School to become the best and top-performing middle school in the district. However, this task cannot be accomplished by the hard work of the staff and faculty alone. We need our parents as partners to drive momentum by being deeply involved in your child’s education. I highly encourage you to attend our parent and community events throughout the year and provide your continuous input, while ensuring that your children attend school every day and complete all their work on time. Together we will propel our students towards greatness, preparing them to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and productive citizens in a global society.

Please visit us to learn about all the wonderful things that are happening at our school throughout the year, or just to say hello!

We are Wright and Ready!

School Description

Wright Middle School is a highly diverse school with 20+ languages and countries represented within the building. We work diligently to support all of our students and their families.

Our school days begin with breakfast followed by Advisory/Morning meeting, a time for students to connect with their teachers and their peers, as they reflect on their own social-emotional well-being. Throughout the day, students experience blended learning in Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science and Related Arts classes. Advanced academics include Encore, a program that supports our gifted students, Integrated Math and Physical Science. In addition, Wright Middle School is very proud to introduce AVID to our school community during the 2018-19 school year, in order to provide a strong foundation of college, career, and life readiness for our students.

Extracurricular activities help keep our students engaged and active. This year, Wright Middle will be dedicating the last Friday of every month for various clubs. Sports are another way students can stay connected after school and expand their personal growth. Our students can choose from six TSSAA sports, including football, cheerleading/dance, basketball, wrestling, track, and soccer. In addition, we will continue to grow our Mariachi program, in addition to our strong band and drama programs.

Wright Middle School has adopted Restorative practices as its Tier 1 behavior intervention model, moving to a restorative rather than a punitive discipline framework, in order to ensure minimal loss of instructional time for the student, as well as providing multiple opportunities for self-reflection and correction.

Wright Middle is a Community Achieves school and is fortunate to have several wonderful community partners who work directly with the school community. They provide an invaluable support to our faculty and students, and participate in quarterly data dives, working to align their supports to the needs of the school as revealed by current data.

There are great things happening at Wright. Please stop by and check us out!
