This school has been nothing but one bad experience after another. My oldest was bullied and came home crying and nothing was done. The principle yells at the children and let's them sweat in the summer in this school or freeze during the winter. They never have enough school lunches and the kids get

The principal won't help the children that need help and are falling behind but she is always taking the credit for the gifted children that are there. This school always has some type of fund raiser and wants are help and our money but puts $0 twards these children. This principle replaces great teachers if they don't side or get along with her. The only option my husband and I feel like we have left is to go to a lawyer so our child gets what he needs before its to late. He is being left behind. I know at least 20 parents that feel the same way about this principal and their kids are having similar issues. Read less

I cannot get my child out of this school fast enough. Wayne School is a "School of Excellence" with the state of Illinois. It's easy to be excellent when the education is dumbed down about 2 grades. There is a MAJOR problem with bullying in this school, especially once you get past 4th grade - and

My son has been attending Wayne for two years now and I do not think the kids are learnign as much as the other schools in the area.

This school is about as good as it gets in U46 and that isn't saying much. The level of parent participation is high and there is much local support for the school and the teachers. Still, class sizes are larger than nearby schools. You had better like Wayne to go to school here, because as good as

We have a first-grader and kindergartner there now. The kindergarten teachers need help, as in aides, badly. They say the district doesn't have the money to pay assistants. We think our first-grader would have fared much better in a smaller kindergarten class. The district leaves much to be desired.
