As a resident of Maxwell Creek, your students will become a part of the Wylie Independent School District. You will begin to hear about, “The Wylie Way” from teachers, students and administrators. The Wylie Way is a focused effort that is research based and designed to set students on the path to achievement in every area of their lives. It’s built on the foundation of building strong relationships with the students, identify their strengths and interests, and help the students develop their plan and purpose for the future. The heart of the Wylie Way lies in core values that the community has helped identify and the goal is to instill these values in the students. While motivating students to be high performers, the intention is to also guide them in becoming good people and to do good things. Each nine weeks, a core value is identified, discussed with the students and special recognition is awarded to students demonstrating this core value consistently.
