Our mission is to encourage high expectations, in academics, attitude, and attendance, through individualized instruction and positive reinforcement as supported by a diverse, nurturing community.
Wilbur Wright recognizes that each child is an individual; that all children are creative; that all children can succeed. Therefore, Wilbur Wright’s vision is to respect the individual needs of children; foster a caring and creative environment; and emphasize the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development of each child in order to succeed in a global society.
Wilbur Wright strives to creates a secure, student-centered environment that promotes strong attendance, skill mastery, and positive attitudes needed to compete successfully in a global society. It is a forward thinking school that prepares our scholars for a rapidly changing world by equipping them with higher order thinking skills, a global perspective, and respect for core values of perseverance, honesty, integrity and compassion. Our students have the opportunity to participate in any of our extra-curricular activities: Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, cheerleading, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls track, and co-ed soccer.
All CMSD schools provide a full continuum of services for students with mild to moderate learning and behavioral issues. Depending on the child’s needs, he or she may receive instruction in the regular education classroom with accommodations and supports, or in a small-group resource room setting for some subjects, or in a single classroom environment for all core subjects. All CMSD schools have access to speech/language pathology, occupational therapy, physical therapy, audiology, and orientation/mobility services. For children with multiple or low-incidence disabilities, severe cognitive delays, or significant emotional/behavioral concerns, CMSD offers specialized classes within schools in every region of the city.
The District provides yellow bus service grades K-5 for all students who live at least a mile from their “assigned school.” In grades 6 through 12, CMSD will pay the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority to transport students who live at least a half-mile from their “assigned school.” If a student chooses to attend another school that isn’t their “assigned school” or a designated “specialty” school, then the District may not be able to provide transportation services. For information about transportation options, call 216.634.7020. Additional services available from Pre-K to 12 based on a student’s special needs and Individual Education Plan. Contact the student’s IEP case manager at the school for details.
