Annie Wright School

827 N Tacoma Ave, Tacoma, WA 98403

The school was founded by Rt. Rev. John A. Paddock, first Episcopal bishop of the Washington Territory, and Charles B. Wright, with the aim that "not only the intellect, but the character, manners and morals of the pupil are subjects of earnest care and solicitude." Located in Tacoma's historic North End, Annie Wright offers a curriculum that combines a rigorous academic program with varied athletic and extracurricular offerings. English as a Second Language classes are available in grades 9-12. In the fall of 2009, the school began offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program to its juniors and seniors. Community service is an important aspect of school life. Boys and girls in the lower and middle schools engage in annual service projects, while students in grades 9-12 engage in required community service blocks that demand 35 to 50 hours annually. An upper school interim week between the second and third trimesters features enrichment activities and college tours.
