My children have been attending Wiley Canyon for 4 years now and have had nothing but awesome experiences. My oldest child who is now in 2nd grade has been a student here since TK and absolutely loves it! The staff is polite, caring, and helpful. I appreciate all that this school offers my children and how much work is put in by the PTA to keep special programs going for our kids!
This once great school is going down FAST. Teachers are transferring or taking early retirement. The good reviews for this school are not the recent ones. Check the dates. The administration is leading this school in a downward spiral. I don't know why the school board allows it. Maybe it's time for a recall. Myself and my friends are changing schools next year. Shame on the administrator who ignores parents concerns and let this once great school down.
I think the start of using the Core standards will help bring Wiley Cyn Elementary up in Star testing rankings. I have high hopes for this procedure. I'm excited to see what the new year brings. The PTA all seem very caring about bringing the best for the kids.
I agree with others that have stated that this school USED to be the best in the valley. After a change in administration, this school lacks communication, a family feel and seems to be more concerned with the ESL students, than the lower API scores. With my other two children, I was very pleased with everything about the school, including the teachers and how they were taught. They were definitely prepared for Junior High and beyond. But sadly this is not the case with my child currently in the school. They are always bringing homework home that has mistakes on it, being given tests after they've been absent and those scores are placed on their report card, was never taught that spelling was important and has a teacher that doesn't want to be there. So now I have a child that I feel is not prepared for further school years at all. At one point I was thinking of homeschooling. Now, I wish I had or at least transferred to another school when I had the chance. I'm sad that I have to write such a review. I really used to love this school.
