Nestled between peaks in the Santa Monica Mountains in Calabasas, A.E. Wright serves 883 students from the communities of Calabasas, Agoura, and Hidden Hills, as well as permitted students from neighboring school districts and district students joining the magnet. A.E. Wright’s campus, once the site of the first school in the district, is a breeding ground for instructional innovation. From their Professional Development School partnership with California Lutheran University, to the newly established robotics course, to their Google Certified staff members leading the movement toward technology integration and paperfree classrooms, their staff lead the practice. Additionally, A.E Wright houses a Gifted magnet, unlike any around, that is specially designed to serve students with the highest intellectual ability.
A.E. Wright students learn about the happenings on campus during video morning announcements. Be it campus-wide activities, such as lunch clubs, sports, homeroom competitions, peer tutoring, peer group discussions, honor society, leadership, or the school’s Spartan Club, A.E. Wright works to create a sense of belonging for a student body that comes from 20 different elementary schools. Dedication to the community is palpable and shown through events such as their Veteran’s Day assembly, where teachers and students introduce and celebrate parents who have served this country. Additional community connection is shown through participation in the Dude. Be Nice program, celebrating a week of community-building, kindness, togetherness and culminating in a huge and passionate rally to honor local first responders! The entire school community works to provide a challenging environment for students to reach their academic potential and grow into responsible and productive citizens.
