Achieve your full potential at ANNIE WRIGHT SCHOOLS - # 1 Best Boarding High Schools in Washington
Founded in 1884, Annie Wright Schools offer single-gender education with day and boarding for Grades 9-12 in our separate Upper School for Boys and Upper School for Girls. While academic classes are separated by gender, students have opportunities for intersection, including arts, activities and social events.
Annie Wright Schools are nestled in beautiful Tacoma, Washington – approximately 30 miles south of Seattle. Our historic campus includes a new indoor pool, three gyms, workout facilities, science and technology labs, art and music studios, a theatre that seats 350, outdoor gardens, play areas, athletic fields and open spaces.
We offer rich, thoughtful and internationally recognized programs that welcome students from around the world. Our programs challenge students to reach their full intellectual potential, preparing them extraordinarily well for college and beyond. Through small class sizes, differentiated instruction and engagement from exceptional faculty, every student at Annie Wright is well-known and treated as an individual. As an International Baccalaureate World School, Annie Wright nurtures inquiry, empathy, and a global perspective.
Our challenging curriculum appeals to motivated students with a variety of learning styles, and our learning support department is available to address individual needs. Annie Wright Upper Schools offer support to all students, including international students who may not speak English as a second language, through our Learning Support and the Writing Center. Our Learning Specialists are able to provide additional academic support beyond what the classroom teacher already provides, either within the larger classroom environment or outside of the classroom individually or within a small group. Learning Specialists also support parents and families to establish strong communication with teachers, better understand the academic needs of their students, and provide wider awareness of academic opportunities beyond high school. Most importantly, we prepare students for a lifetime of learning, instilling genuine curiosity and the courage to ask questions, seek creative answers and meet the challenges of a rapidly changing, complex and culturally diverse world.
Annie Wright's experienced college counselors help students find their best fit colleges and offer advising through the entire college admission process. Beginning with Grade 9, students participate in yearly college planning activities that prepare them for the journey. With the support of the Annie Wright college counseling staff, students transition to their next life chapter with a clear sense of who they are and what they hope to achieve. Annie Wright is proud of our 100% college acceptance rate, with graduates attending exceptional colleges and universities, including Georgetown, Johns Hopkins, MIT, NYU, Stanford and Washington University in St. Louis.
Boarding students enter a long-established and vibrant residential life program with beautiful living facilities and eight residential faculty who are dedicated to each student’s well-being and academic success. The rooms in our recently renovated dorm are each unique, comfortable and spacious, with plenty of light. Students enjoy shared kitchen facilities, media lounges and study spaces in the dorm. Located right in our main building, makes access to the dining hall, classrooms, library, gym and other campus facilities as easy as walking down the hall.
