I would definitely call a private school called Kenley: 325-698-3220

Here's a little of what's on the website:

"If a child doesn't learn the way he is taught, we teach him the way he learns."
Kenley teachers are on a quest to see how each student learns best.
Kenley teachers teach and reinforce basic knowledge using visual, auditory and
kinesthetic channels.

We specialize in individualized instruction. Testing is used to place students in appropriate instructional levels and to help teachers and parents understand the nature of problems and strengths of the child. Direct focused instruction is used to remediate areas of weakness.
Testing is used to measure students' educational progress and the effectiveness of our programs. It is optimal for students' grades on assignments to be in the 90's. Every nine weeks Progress Reports are sent to parents.
Cooperation and tolerance are encouraged. Competition is minimized.
Each student is encouraged to do his best to improve his weaknesses and celebrate his strengths. Students are involved in forming personal goals and are encouraged to meet those goals.
It has been said, "Success is like a vitamin." Kenley teachers look for ways to help students become successful.
Classrooms are staffed with a certified teacher and an assistant. There are no more than 12 students in grades one through four, and no more than 13 in grades five though eight.
The morning begins with recreational reading and soft Mozart music. Teachers help students choose books on their recreational reading level. They read with the students and discuss the stories.
Computer lab is offered on a daily basis.
A majority of students at Kenley have language based learning disabilities. A speech and language pathologist offers remediation and works with teachers to help students in the classroom. Teachers consider the language level of the student when planning instruction.
We seek to instill a love of good literature. Teachers read to students everyday.
We provide instruction in phonics and word study.
We grade kindly in green ink. Incorrect items are given a check mark and students then correct their errors.
Fun is an important part of each school day.
Students are encouraged to look beyond self. Each class is involved in a service project.
Teachers at Kenley School participate in professional growth and are knowledgeable in the latest educational research.
Education of parents and the community is one of the goals of Kenley School.
We sponsor speakers in the field of learning disabilities and have books and videos that can be checked out.

No, you cannot. But, the Abilene schools are every bit as good or better in some areas than Wylie ISD.
The buildings themselves are not as new--that's the only inequity!
My children went through AISD & had the most awesome teachers, excelled academically, and loved their school years. I would encourage you to give it a try! Ward, Madison & Cooper are excellent!!! ... more

2301 Crescent is in a “Flood Plain”, and Flood Insurance will most likely be required. A lot of Abilene Texas is in some part of the flood zone. Crescent is also showing up as “Sale Pending”. Truila and other internet sites often lag behind MLS available information. If you want/need a list of up to date homes for sale call or email me with your wants needs & price range.
