This school is absolutely great! My son is in there special education class and the teacher and staff are so caring. My son has improved so much after attending this school. The school is so organized. I really like the principal, she is very caring and nice. She really takes time to talk to parents. This is best U-46 school in the district.

Wayne Elementary has been wonderful for our daughter who has attended 1st and 2nd grades there. The teachers really care about the children, and the creative ways that they continuously keep the children engaged and passionate about learning are unbelievable. Everybody at the school from the custodian to the principal are warm, friendly, and engaging. The communication is also excellent, with regular e-mail updates to parents to supplement the information brought home by the children. I cannot say enough good things about this school.

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 the administration does nothing. Way to much authority is given to parent volunteers. The classrooms are over-crowded and the school heating/cooling systems need to be upgraded. The teachers for for the lower grades are fine, but for 4th, 5th & 6th leave much to be desired!!

Wayne school has the best teachers. They are innovative and dedicated. One retired teacher volunteered to go back and teach for the last 7 years because it is such a great environment for students.

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. The prinicpal is very slow in responding to parent issues and everything is about fund raising. What about teaching the children what they need to know. In kindergarden they put my son on the school bus instead of the daycare bus and then blamed it on a parent volunteer. How scary to be left on a bus on your first day of school.

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 a school it is, you'd be better off in Geneva.

Wayne Elementary is a wonderful school to attend. Parent involvement is very high and the PTO does an excellent job of adding programs and materials for all of the grade levels. Teachers are dedicated and professional. Class sizes are a bit high but I've always felt my children have received enough individual attention.
