    "I agree with much of what the negative reviews say, but, as a former student, I think some of the negativity has been exaggerated. While some of the teachers at this school were undoubtedly much less than satisfactory, there were many teachers that were indeed worthwhile, like one of my English teachers, all of my science teachers, two of my math teachers, and one of my social science teachers. Most memorably, my Spanish teachers were amazing, one of whom has unfortunately retired. However, none of my teacher-student experiences can make amends for the rough path my family and I traveled against the principal, who was and still is egotistical and terrible at doing her job. In addition, my counselor, perhaps the same one as mentioned below, failed to do her job when I needed her assistance. Average school..some great teachers and some horrific admin."

    "So much happier with the new school I put my child in after pulling my child out of AE Wright Principal is so full of herself and very unhelpful to parents.One counselor in particular who hopefully for the other kids still going there has retired was awful.Spoke to another parent who had the same exact terrible experience with her .A few old time good teachers but most not very impressive. P.E teachers are the worst and even if you have an athletic child they will wind up dreading P.E with the drill seargents that call themselves teachers.School is over half filled with kids from out of district as anyone can lie to get in.They don't do any checking. Much happier with the other LVUSD school we switched to.Completely different atmosphere from how the campus is kept up to the attitude of student's and teachers.Wish I would have made the switch earlier because this school is seriously lacking for a LVUSD school."

    "While the principal is nice, as a parent, I have found many things lacking about this school, from the curriculum to the quality of teachers. Moreover, my child was bullied on the basis of his race, and this is not the first time this school has had such challenges in the past. There is even a video, posted by kids, that demonstrates this ignorance."

    "Thank goodness I am almost done with this school. I have spent 3 dreadful years here. The teachers here are horrible because all they want is their monthly pay check. Also, the principal is sexist. In her 6 years of being a principal, she only hired one male teacher. Also, if a teacher is friends with the principal, she won't get fired. No matter what she does, she will stay at the school if she's friends with the principal. There is this little circle of teacher friends that think that their all that. Also, the kids have their way of bullying that teacher don't understand. It is not talked about in this bullying program that is usless. Also, we have to write essays in every class twice a semester. (Even in PE) because the principal wants us to write more. Instead of writing, how about we LEARN more. Also, this school stresses PE way too much. We run 2 1/2 miles every Tuesday. PE is broadcasted as more important than academics. Your GPA will be affected if you have a B in PE. Overall, do not send your kids here."

    "DON'T GO TO AEWRIGHT. Worst school ever!! The teachers hate their jobs and just want the monthly pay check and good test scores. It is a complete joke. The school dances are poorly funded and are NOT fun. The kids are snobby and VERY perverted. I came into aewright not cussing at all and come out knowing every curse word on the planet because of these kids. And another thing is you can't express your individuality. Everyone dresses the same in their exspensive slutty outfits and they expect everyone else to be like them. I've been called many names by the kids. One child told his PE teacher he would commit suicide if he didn't meet the unbeatable state standard mile cut off time. Then he failed and the teacher did not care when he told her while crying. I have spent 3 dreadful years at this school and do not advise it for anyone. The best compromise is to home school so ur kept away from the corrupt school systems. :)"
