Although my children no longer attend this school I miss it. The school they attend now doesn't compare to Charles Wright. Charles Wright is a jewel in the DPS. I am sad Ms. Green is no longer principal but I met the new principal Mrs. Davis and I think she has big shoes to fill in Ms. Green's place. ...  Read more

I submitted a review on Sept 8th about my son's 2nd week at Charles H. Wright. While I love my son's teacher (Ms. Traylor), the progress that he's making and the level of the class material; I have to admit that the discipline of the children before school leave little to be desired.

I personally think in which this is my opinion Charles H. Wright could be better. I really think it depends on what teacher your child has. Sometimes I have to wonder if the teachers really care and do they take out the time to make sure that the students understand their assignments. I don't really ...  Read more

This is a very good school with consistent above average MEAP scores. The after school component needs to be better. Overall I think that this a nice school. In terms of the homework, many teachers do assign lots of meaningful homework with only about a twenty five percent return rate making it difficult ...  Read more

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2013
Charles Wright School
Detroit City School District
* In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
