Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to Wilbur Wright Middle School! The School Town of Munster and Wilbur Wright have had a rich tradition of excellence in education for many years. Wilbur Wright was recently named an Indiana Department of Education Four-Star school based on the exceptional academic performance of our students and we are very proud of this recognition.
At Wilbur Wright, the faculty and staff work very hard to identify strengths and weaknesses in all students so that an appropriate and challenging curriculum can be implemented for every student. Students will be routinely assessed in their classes with locally developed assessments as well as a minimum of three times per year using the standardized NWEA assessment. Feedback will be regularly provided to students and to parents regarding the academic progress of students.
In addition to the exceptional academic program at Wilbur Wright, a variety of extra-curricular opportunities are available to all students. We have over 25 after school clubs/sports that are available for students as well as a strong co-curricular music and fine arts program. Regardless of your interest area, there is something for everyone when it comes to the educational and extra-curricular program at Wilbur Wright.
Students will spend three years in middle school learning and growing academically, physically, emotionally, and socially. Our goal at Wilbur Wright is always to make those years fun and exciting as we push students to reach their full potential in everything that they do. I would encourage every student to get involved at Wilbur Wright beyond the regular school day by finding an activity, club, or sport that they enjoy. These after school activities allow students to extend their education at Wilbur Wright by working with friends and teammates toward a common goal with the expertise of a mentor or coach guiding them every step of the way.
The office staff, guidance staff and school administration are always available to assist parents, students, and the community as we work together to provide an excellent education to every student. If you have any questions, concerns, or need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 836-6260.
Yours in education,
Dr. Andy Sargent
