My child is almost through this school and we'll be sorry to move on because he did so well here. Loved his teachers and the administrators. We're very happy with the quality of education at this school and the level of challenge. Plus they do try to make it fun while covering all they need to in the curriculum. Very involved PTO.

If your child doesn't fit into their "mold" then they will label him/her as a "problem child" and will not help them. They would rather you dope your child up on meds then nurture them & help them. I'm at the point where I'm looking to move out of this district so my child & myself do not have to deal with the Wayne school system!

Theunis Dey tries hard to make children learn alot but still have fun once and awhile but the staff is sometimes hard on the children but that is only if the children are not caring about others or not listening. This a nice fun school but staff is hard on children but mostly on the 3rd,4th ,&5th graders the education is AWSOME!

I have kids in this school for the past 8 years and I have had nothing but great teachers and a safe learning environment. My kids enjoyed all of their teachers and were well prepared for the next step.

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.
