About Us

Wright Denny

Located one block off the main street of Charles Town, West Virginia, Wright Denny Intermediate School serves approximately 430 students in grades three through five. Our building has been a community institution since 1929, serving as a high school, a junior high school, and an elementary school. Following major renovations in 1993, our facilities include a separate gymnasium, media center, computer lab, music room, art room, cafeteria, and a beautiful 475-seat auditorium in addition to twenty-five classrooms.

Our gracious, Greek-columned building is not only a historical landmark, but also a center of activity that we are proud to share with the community.

Under the leadership of principal Chris Walter, Wright Denny has a faculty of 27 regular and special education teachers, two instructional aides, and full time art, media, physical education, and music teachers. The school is also served by a counselor, a speech pathologist, a psychologist, a nurse, and a band instructor.

The majority of Wright Denny's teachers have worked together for a number of years and offer a warm welcome to new staff members, thus forming a closely knit faculty who have comfortable professional relationships. This creates a mix of experience and renewal and enables the staff to undertake group projects and decision-making with a high degree of efficiency.

Remembering Wright Denny's history, our staff deals confidently with present challenges, and looks forward to the future.
