This is a great school. It makes me happy to see my little boy succeed in all his classes. I need to help him a tad bit but other htan that he is very hard working and the teachers have told me that he is a pleasure to have in their classes. He's a sweet little boy and i love him. And you should too :)

I have had 3 students attend Wyoming Park and have been very happy with their education. The staff is wonderful and work with students consistently. The athletic programs are very competitive and the coaching staff is great. I have attended every parent teacher conference and have known all of my childrens teachers, coaches, and counselors. I would recommend Wyoming Park because of the great experience it has provided for my kids.

I'm a student teacher right now at Wyoming Park. There are a handful of students who need extra attention, but the rest of the school atmosphere is great. The teachers are great, stickt, firm, fair and consistant. The only problem I see is the parents lack of involvement. And it's really sad. I come from a single parent home just as most of these students do. But my mom worked her butt off and was there for me, and now I'm graduationg college and doing something. I see no excuses. I have 150 students, I'm a health teacher, so I have general ed and special ed students, 9-12, so I have an excellent view of what the student population looks like. When we had teacher conferences, (4 days of them!) we had 15 gaurdians show up. And the ones that did show up, were the students who do very well.

My daughter came from a private school to WPHS and the teachers, principal , council and administrative staff has always been there to assist the student if there were a public school I would recommend it would be WPHS the communication between students and teachers is outstanding

WPHS has some great programs that allow students to be the best they can be. The academic departments are well above the State averages and most of the extra curricular programs are very good. The arts are excellent including band and theater. The musicals are outstanding. Athletics are very competitive and have a fine tradition. Conference championships are common in soccer, softball, tennis, basketball, and girls basketball. The baseball and football programs have excellent tradition but have not had as recent success. The State standardized assessments rate WPHS as the best High School in Wyoming. Parent involvement is good and community support is evident at extra curricular events and parent teacher conferences. Very few students are unsuccessful.

Coming from private school in K-8 my daughter's freshman year has been exceptional. The staff has made it a point to smooth the transition for her. Communication with staff is not a problem. When I email a teacher I have a response within 24 hours (usually less than 1 hour!). An issue that we needed addressed by administration was addressed immediately and to my satisfaction. All in all, after being very worried about 'public school' for the first time ever, I couldn't be happier and would actually pay WPHS to allow my daughter to be there!

Wyoming park has one of the best english programs in the area. The students are pushed to be their best in every subject. I believe that the school has a very well rounded academic process. There has never been cuts on any sports or arts ever at wyoming park. They are teaching my children to be well-rounded people. The involvement between parents are the teachers, is always available. The school has a program called parent connect. This allows parents to know when a child has anything missing, a failing test grade, or even an e in a class. The school is where i went, the place my children went, and where my grandchildren will go.

I would never, ever send my children to this school. There is no communication between teachers, council, principal. I am glad I pulled my son and daughter out of that school and put them in private school.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
