Theo R. Wright Elementary School was a magnet elementary school in the Birmingham City Schools system located at 625 14th Avenue Northwest in the Venetia Heights subdivision, now part of the Bridlewood neighborhood of East Pinson Valley.
Plans for the $500,000 school were approved in August 1968. The plans for the one-story brick-veneered building were drawn by Poole, Pardue, Morrison & Dean architects. Their design provided large open classroom areas for "team teaching". The school was later named for Superintendent of Schools Theo R. Wright. Its mascot was the Warriors.
In 2008 the school was placed on the Honor Roll for the National Center for Urban School Transformation.
