“As a military kid changing schools, I often feel like the outsider. When I came to Charles Wright, the first day everybody in my 8th grade class accepted me and I did not feel like the outsider. By the second week, I felt like just another one of the boys and I’ll treasure that feeling forever. Thank you, Charles Wright.”  — Julian C. ’23
