Older Sister

Annie Wright School,
founded in 1884,
is the big sister to Tacoma's
Charles Wright Academy.

Annie Wright was founded as a school for young ladies.
It's now coed for younger students,
but the high school still is populated only by young women.

Charles Wright, which opened in the 1950's,
began as a school for boys
(the brothers of those Annie Wright girls),
but now Charles Wright is coed
from preschool through high school.

I wondered for quite a few years how long it would take to integrate these schools.
