All are welcome at R.L. Wright Elementary!

R.L. Wright Elementary is a small school in Sedgwick, KS, just fifteen minutes north of Wichita. We Are Family! A feeling of connection starts as students step on campus. Every morning staff stand on the curb and greet students because we know relationships matter most! With 280 students, Wright is unique in that the school is on the same campus as the junior and senior high schools. We are proud of our connections with our secondary students, and teachers build relationships that can last for the fourteen years students are on campus.

FAB families are another way we build connections at R.L. Wright. Each staff member has a family of students from various grade levels. Each year that family stays together and adds new kindergartners. Families meet monthly connecting through different activities. FAB photos are proudly displayed as a testament to our feeling of connectedness. Small class sizes, emphasis on high expectations, community involvement, and sensational teachers are some of the reasons we have found success! The growth mindset of always wanting to learn, and leadership's encouragement of innovation, have made a difference for students.

At R.L. Wright, all students are a part of our Multi-tiered System of Support. This allows us to meet the academic needs of each student on their level. Data-driven decision-making is done through Professional Learning Communities as staff fine-tune best practices in meeting every student's academic and social-emotional needs. We are proud to be Sedgwick Cardinals!
