Our Story

Richard Wright provides rich, balanced, and diverse opportunities to all students, supporting the mission and vision of the school, fostering intellectual, cultural, social growth, and promoting physical health and wellness. Students participate in various clubs, sports, activities, events, and trips that encourage students to utilize mental and physical practical application of concepts, skills, and processes they are continually learning both in and beyond the classroom.

From professional organizations in the media industry, distinguished colleges and national educational associations, visiting artists and journalists, to an end of the year multimedia gala event, RWPCS continually provides unique opportunities for its students to enhance, supplement, and stimulate each student’s life holistically.

The hallmark events in which RWPCS celebrates the achievements of students and the work they have produced throughout the year is the annual Black Tie Gala. The content and products screened and shared with the general public continue to amaze, inspire, and entrance viewers, garnering a bigger audience, venue, and growing support of the school and its talented, motivated, and determined young people every year.
