Hello Cougar Families!
Your student(s) may be talking about Houses or Rooms. The staff decided last spring that we wanted to build a more cohesive community of learners. So, we put our heads together and developed the Cougar House system. The goal is to connect students and staff across the grades in a meaningful way to foster relationship building and a better sense of belonging for us all.

We now have 7 Houses, named for character traits: Creative, Courageous, Adventurous, Brave, Persistent, Compassionate, and Optimistic

Each House has approximately 66 students, ranging from TK-8, divided into three Rooms. Each House has 3 or more teacher leaders from different grade levels who lead the House Rooms. Support staff all participate in a Room too. Ask a student or staff member about House Activities!

Wright Charter School is a charming public elementary school that serves students in grades TK-8. It serves a need in our community for parents who desire their young teens and tweens to continue to learn in a small environment where staff and community know students by name and are well versed in their skills and abilities. The early teen and tween years are a time when students benefit from adult support in many areas.

What is our mission for students in transitional kindergarten through eighth grade? Wright Charter School seeks to empower students to develop a passion for lifelong learning and to nurture them by engaging their intellect, emotions, and natural curiosity. We seek to instill not only the knowledge, skills and abilities set forward in the California State Standards, but to develop student competence and motivation to use their education responsibly, enriching their own lives and the lives of those in their communities.
