Character Education


"Be the change you want to see in the world." -Gandhi 

What is Character Education?  It takes more than academics to raise children from being totally dependent on their parents to successful, independent adults.  At Wright City Middle School we strive to highlight character traits that will help students beyond the classroom.  Character traits such as honesty, respectfulness, integrity, responsibility, self-control, compassion.....  these are skills that will benefit children throughout their lives.  
Character Education does not replace school curriculum, but it is incorporated throughout the day as teachers emphasize the importance of developing good character.  Students will experience lessons and activities each week dedicated to character enrichment.  Additional activities and service learning opportunities will take place on occasion to help students apply positive character to all aspects of life.
