Welcome to Upper School


Welcome to the UMS-Wright Preparatory School website. Whether you are a current member of the UMS-Wright family or a prospective student, parent, or teacher, I anticipate this site will give you great insight into the past, present, and future of UMS-Wright. 

Since 1893, the UMS-Wright community has worked collectively to advance the mission of UMS-Wright:  “to educate all students to their highest potential in mind, body, and spirit and to produce in each student character of the highest possible order.” 

It is this mission that continues to drive our dedicated staff to develop in our students a commitment to excellence in the classroom, in our community, on the stage and on the athletic field and court.  The opportunities our students have to accomplish great things individually and collectively are highlighted by their commitment to “playing the game with honor.” It is by achieving great success while demonstrating integrity, humility, and honor that UMS-Wright students truly fulfill the mission of our great school.

The campus of UMS-Wright continues to grow and provide our students and staff with opportunities to develop and display a love for learning and discovery. By utilizing a variety of tools and methods of  instruction in our academic facility, we are able to extend our reach beyond our gates while maintaining our strong tradition of ensuring every student reaches his/her highest potential. 

There is no substitute for seeing UMS-Wright in action.  Please accept my invitation to experience UMS-Wright and the things that set this school apart from any other. Visit our campus, meet our teachers, read our senior profiles, witness our students volunteer their talents and time, watch a performance or game, and you will see very quickly the UMS-Wright mission is far more than just words; it is the heartbeat of this institution.
