Wylie is your average high school with less class options, a huge football program, and a lot of entitlement. It's the "rich" school in town, and often times I feel like the rep is overwhelming and competitive, especially among the students. Some of the admin are okay while others are impatient. Wylie's communication with families is no good (no parent involvement)! I've had good teachers, but I've also had a few teachers who just don't care. Plus, all of the material and lessons are centered on standardized testing. The school lacks a lot of class options. Wylie is focused on science/medical, band, theater, agriculture, and athletics. Wylie offers no foreign languages except Spanish, too. I wish they would expand the art and design programs. Other than that, school safety is decent. The facilities are okay, but Wylie is growing a ton right now. The high school building is mostly up to date, plus the stadium and Performing Arts Center are nice! Lastly, the dress code is a little dumb.

The school overall is very interesting. They don't like acknowledge racism or domestic violence on campus. On the good note, they don't tolerate animal cruelty. Most of the teachers are wonderful, while others cause many students to go into depression. As a student diagnosed with depression, i struggled in math quite a bit. She laughed at me along with the class and made fun of me all of the time. She said i wouldnt amount to anything. She said "i think of life like baseball. There is no crying in baseball" and the admin didnt do anything about it. The school also only allows certain students to succeed. The students that need help, they will push them to the side while the students that are succeeding, they will spend all of their time on.
Wylie highschool is a very good school. I play Tennis and all teachers stress the importance of keeping grades up in order to play sports. The councilors here are very good and make sure that all student who need help, mentally and sports wise, get all the help that is needed. The food is mediocre at best but I've definitely had worst. I believe that the biggest problem at wylie would be the lack of communication between teachers and principals. I believe that with better communication would make things run smoother between teachers and students.
