At JC Wright Middle School, we believe all of our scholars will be successful and exemplify our school mission and philosophy. In order to be successful, we expect our scholars to arrive at school prepared and focused on learning. In order to do that, JC Wright scholars will be in uniform when they enter the building and equipped with the materials and supplies they will need for the day.
By enrolling your scholar at JC Wright Middle School, you are providing your child an excellent educational opportunity. In addition, you have incurred the responsibility as a parent to ensure that your scholar is appropriately dressed in his/her designated school uniform daily. Should you scholar come to school out of uniform, you understand that you will be responsible for bringing your scholar’s uniform to school immediately upon receiving a phone call.
