School History

W.A. Wright Elementary is a Kindergarten to Fifth Grade school located in the fast-growing suburb of Mt. Juliet. Named in memory of W.A. Wright, III, a Wilson County school superintendent, the school opened to students in the fall of 1991.

The K-5 school opened with 11 primary classrooms, 19 intermediate classrooms, 4 special education classrooms, and support rooms that consisted of a media center, gymnasium, cafetorium, computer lab, music center, and stage. In 1998, the county added 4 primary classrooms, an art room, and a large commons area for whole grade-level meetings.

W.A. Wright has operated on a traditional calendar since the school opened. However, in 1999-2000, a dual calendar was followed to pilot a modified balanced calendar. W.A. Wright Elementary was the first fully balanced modified calendar school in the Wilson County System.
