One daughter just graduated from Wylie East High School. The other still attends. They went to Birmingham Elementary, Davis Intermediate, McMillan Junior High & Wylie East.
 
I think all the schools were great! The teachers and staff are great. I thought the school district beautifully handled COVID-19, especially when they gave staff and students the option to come back or go virtually.

I am the parent of former students of Wylie ISD. The love and care I felt when my husband passed in 2016 was special. At his funeral, my extended family couldn't believe the superintendent, administration, teachers, and students were there to say their goodbyes to Ricky.
 
Tate had just started junior high when his dad passed away. I am so thankful that he had the administrators that he did at Burnett Jr. High. Ryan Bickley, Michelle Lindsay, Justin Mork, and Heather Smyder are my angels and were a complete godsend. I couldn't have made it through that school year if it wasn't for them.
 
Mr. Cravens and Mrs. Jurotich were also instrumental in being there for Tate. As a community, we are so blessed to have these people investing in our children.

We are a family with 3 children who are currently entering their 13th year with Wylie ISD. As parents, we are active, involved, and invested in this school district beyond our own children and family and we have had nothing less than the best experiences.
 
Starting in elementary, where all 3 of our children were afforded the opportunity to participate in the Dual Language program, they had some of the best, top-notch and caring teachers. Two of our three children have been identified as GT and the other was identified with Visual Processing Disorder and memory span. The support for these programs alone has been stellar.
 
Our 3 also have had the opportunity to take advantage of additional programs including Band, Theatre, and Cheer.

The choir program at WEHS is phenomenal. Dr. and Mrs. Dame are a dynamic team who've made the program into what it is today with their enthusiasm and commitment to their songbirds. Every student is given an opportunity and every student is showcased, which I feel is a rarity in any program.
 
My child began his choral career 3 years ago under the direction of Ms. Jackson at McMillan JH. The sky has been the limit from there. He's received nothing but encouragement, positive advice, constructive criticism, and support from the fantastic role models associated with the Wylie East program. From performances to trips, we can't wait to see what the next three years will bring!

We absolutely love Wylie ISD. I want to start there. There are two people that I would be ashamed not to call out for being exceptional and that's the Dame's. They are the most caring, supportive, FUN teachers my kid has ever had.
 
I also want to call out one other, and that's Kara Milot. My daughter struggled in Elementary with comprehension which hurt every subject but there's something profound about connection. Mrs Milot was TREMENDOUS with our daughter and from that year on, her grades and attitude towards school all shifted after having her class.
 
These are significant impacts these teachers are having on our kids and I believe at the root of it is love, kindness, and caring.

This past year, my son entered Burnett from Harrison. For years, we have struggled to get him into the right program to help him with issues that he's had past from not only his own traumatic life, but the trauma that has been caused because other adults have not understood how to work with him.
 
We have found the perfect team to work with my son at Burnett. The AP that we work with is Justin Mork and he is beyond excellent and thinking outside the box and really looking out for our children.
 
His teacher Mrs. Rippy works very diligently and tries to keep a balanced setting for my son as well as the teachers. my son has learned to trust For the first time in his academic career. We are very grateful to Burnett Junior High.

I retired from RISD after 30 years but decided to sub in Wylie as we live here. I am so pleased with Ashley Hopson and the entire sub-system. She is so very helpful and gets right back to me when I have a question. Payroll does the same when I have a question for them. The kids at both schools are well-behaved, respectful, and seem to really want to learn. I am so happy I chose to sub in Wylie ISD. Our daughter got a wonderful education here, went off to OU, and now works for NBC and is very successful.

Akin Elementary has been amazing for both of my kids. They have been great at keeping us up to date on upcoming events. My kids love going to school to see their teachers. Everyone at Cooper Junior High has been so welcoming. They are all checking in on me to make sure that I have everything I need to help myself and the students that I am serving. The administrators are always visible and willing to help at the drop of a hat no matter what they are doing at the time. Wylie East High School has amazing teachers who go out of their way to help each other and their students.

As my last kid graduates this year, I could not be more grateful for the district in which she and her sister have grown up. I think what I appreciate most about Wylie ISD is the fidelity with which it has influenced them to be the best version of themselves.
 
There has been such a strong focus on developing their character alongside encouraging positive forward-thinking about their future and all its possibilities. I've seen the district's intentionality from the perspective of a parent, a volunteer with PTA and now as an employee. In each facet, I've seen a consistency and clarity in what the goal and purpose is for every student and the focus on building relationships.
 
I completely understand why Wylie ISD is a destination district.

My family and I love being a part of the Wylie ISD family. We have two kids who are attending Wylie ISD schools, and they are getting a quality education that prepares them for college and beyond. As an ISS Administrator at Burnett Junior High, I work with amazing teachers and staff who create a positive and supportive learning environment for the students.

My wife is a board member of the Wylie East Booster, and she supports the Pride of the East band program that fosters creativity and teamwork among the students. Wylie ISD is more than a school district, it's a community that values diversity, innovation, and excellence.
