Mission Statement

The administration, faculty and staff of J.M. Wright Technical High School believe that each of our students is unique and capable of achieving his or her highest potential. We believe in the importance of creating a safe and supportive learning environment for students. Our mission is to provide a dual comprehensive program of expert instruction in both a specific trade technology and core academic subjects.

We hold our students to high standards so that they can achieve their personal best. We strive to endow our students with the skills to become critical thinkers and productive citizens. We believe the success of J.M. Wright Technical High School is strengthened and advanced through cooperative relationships with business, industry, alumni and the local community of Stamford.
