Our story

What is the Wylie Way

The Wylie Way is the foundation of our district. We believe that if we focus on our students as whole people and equip them for what they need to succeed in life, then we will graduate good people who go out and do good things.

The Wylie Way is the sum of many parts: strengths & interests, plan & purpose, core ethical values, social & emotional health, and surrounding our students with positive relationships.

If we can make each of those foundations compelling and meaningful in the lives of our students, they will be equipped with what is necessary to increase their hope, well-being, and engagement. Being solid in those foundations is necessary to close the achievement gap and have success in life. 

Our Framework


Building strong relationships with students is vital to their achievement. We share a collective goal in Wylie that every student will have a meaningful relationship with at least one adult. The Wylie Way works because this is our highest priority.

Strengths & Interests

We firmly believe that if we can help our students identify and grow strongly in their strengths and interests, we can set their feet on the path to achievement. We all have innate gifts and talents; we want our students to explore what theirs are and allow them to grow as confident individuals.

Plan & Purpose

Many of us were not given the opportunity to really think through what we wanted for our future while we were in school. In Wylie, we want to help our students develop their future plan and purpose. Our goal is to connect what our students are good at and interested in with possible careers by providing classes in those fields.

Core Ethical Values

The heart of the Wylie Way lies in our values. With the support of the community, we have identified the core values we want to instill in our students. Not only do we want our students to be high performers, we also want them to be good people and do good things. We intentionally have designated days to understand, care about, and act on the focused value of the 9 weeks.
