We have two older boys who attended an elite prep school on the East Coast. When we moved to the Seattle area we sought out a similar school for our children. We found Annie Wright to be the only comparable school in the Puget Sound area, so we moved our family to Tacoma for our children to be able to attend Annie Wright. The community of families and educators are exceptional. Christian Sullivan, the administration and faculty are directly responsible for the success of Annie WrightΓÇÖs schools and most importantly its students. They have brought a world class education to the Puget Sound. The curriculum is progressive and focuses on how the student will be successful in the world as it will exist when they finish their university studies. It helps them answer the question of how they will lead the world in their time; how they will be problem solvers and leaders in their communities; and how to take risks in addressing solutions for serious issues of our day. There are few schools in the country that have an IB program for all three educational levels and focus on the development of the individual child in this manner. A question was asked of the community two years ago as to how we should educate our boys who are entering the Upper School level. After two years of strategic planning in which parents, students, alumni, faculty, teachers and administrators were involved, the Board of Trustees unanimously approved the development of an Upper School for boys. Boys will now, finally, be able to have the same opportunity as the girls in the Annie Wright community. In an era in which entering top universities has become more challenging than ever, and gender lines have been redefined, the Annie Wright community believed that this move is consistent with our progressive beliefs. We welcome similarly-minded families in providing these opportunities. Unfortunately, a small group of anti-progressive alumnae who are driven by discriminatory values rejected by most communities years ago, seek to discredit the school and its leaders. The community is now faced with having to defend our amazing schools against their slanderous social media campaign. As we have decided not to stoop to their level, the community is spreading the good word to others of the tremendous culture and opportunities with which we have been presented by participating in the Annie Wright community. Come join us!Kristina M. - parent

We are current parents of a child at Annie Wright Schools and could not be happier with our experience. In the six years that we have been at Annie Wright, we have benefited from the warmth of the school community, the engaging curriculum and the dedicated faculty and staff. The school is thriving and I give the Head of Schools complete credit for the current success of the school. He works tirelessly on behalf of Annie Wright Schools. The school enrollment is at an all time high and the school is financially strong. The Board of Trustees recently made the decision to begin to educate high school boys. This decision was not made unilaterally nor was it made in haste. Rather, it was the result of a long and arduous strategic planning process for the schools. Unfortunately, there is a small but vocal group of alumnae who are unhappy with the Board's decision to educate high school boys and are using websites like this in an attempt to disparage the head of schools and by association, the school itself. You have to ask yourself: What kind of person seeks to damage the institution that they claim to care so much about? I would encourage anyone interested in Annie Wright Schools to take the time to call and meet with the head of schools and/or any of the division heads. Take a tour of the school, allow your child a day at the school and I'm confident you will come away with a better understanding of what Annie Wright Schools has to offer your child.

Community member-My family has been in this community and immediate area since 1895. For as long as I can remember Annie Wright School has been the most celebrated education institution in this community and one of the best in the country. Times have changed over the years and the school has grown and developed with the needs it provides. I remember the ruckus when it changed from just a boarding school for young women to also having outside day classes and when boys were allowed to attend. There is no logic in educating boys only so far, and then forcing them to attend an upper school that doesn't have the standards nor the level of curriculum of Annie Wright. The arguments I've been made aware of from this website and the local news media are simply based on some nostalgic ideal of the past and not on progressive thinking.

I am shocked at the recent treatment of alumnae by the head of schools. He is hellbent on ending the traditions and values here as fast as possible for reasons only he knows. Many are upset by his strong arm tactics and I hope high school boys' families considering the school are aware of the problems and haste associated with the plans for a boys school to be crammed onto the campus.
