We moved to McKinney 2 years ago. We were nervous about moving to a new district / school, however, our worries quickly subsided as the teachers at Wilmeth are amazing! This is our 2nd year and again all 3 of my children have wonderful, sweet, caring teachers. They have all gone above and beyond in the classroom. Feeling blessed! Carla

We are new to McKnney & my 2 children have just finish their first year at Wilmeth. All the staff including the principle are just lovely. Cannot fault anything!!!! We are super proud to be Longhorns!!!!

There is a consistent review of a bully teacher dating back to 2012. This is concerning and unfounding that the problem has not been corrected. My child was one that was bullied by a teacher. I have her in a new school now and she is again the happy child I remember. There may be wonderful teachers in this school that are not getting credit. One bad seed becomes a reflection of the entire school. Though we have left the school and my child is happy, he is terrified to ask teachers for help and has occasional nightmares and his experience at Wilmeth.

Wilmeth is a wonderful school! My 4th grader is new to the school and loves it! I have a son in kinder this year and he loves going to school every day! The teachers at Wimeth are amazing and so is the staff! We are so happy to be at Wilmeth!

I am saddened to see such negative things said and written about Wilmeth's staff and principal. I have two children at this school (and have for a few years) and we absolutely LOVE it! Sure, there are some teachers that have been more strict than others, but they have ALL been wonderful. The principal is fabulous. She is always present and very involved. I have found her to be excellent with the children and with the parents. WIlmeth is exactly where we want to be!

In response to the teacher chastising parents for questioning the principal or anyone at the school: I am very concerned that you are teaching our children. It is our responsibility as parents to be involved and not only question the school but as Americans living in a free/democratic country to constantly question and interact. Our children should be taught that as it was how our country was founded! I am a tax paying citizen in McKinney/Collin county, with the majority of my taxes (amount the highest in the U.S.) going to public education, it is also my duty to be involved to ensure my children and others get the best possible education. Wilmeth could definitely do better by it's students, and the students should be our main concern. It is mine!

Cold doesn't even begin to explain the current principal at Wilmeth. In my dealings w/her & in my opinion she is out of touch with the young lives placed in her care & in overseeing their education. She MAY be a good educator, though I have yet to see it, but she is not suited to elementary education. I have 5 children, they have attended 3 McKinney ISD schools & I recommended them all, and MIGHT reccomend Wilmeth if a different principle was at the helm. Her stance on a little girl being bullied by several boys, was appalling. Her response was in essence - we've gone a little bit overboard with this bullying issue overall & it would help the girl to toughen up a bit. Appalling! Also when I'm at the school, which is at least weekly & the principal (14-15) seems uninterested about the children at her school. It isn't a happy place; in my experience elementary school is about fostering a joy in children about school.

Wilmeth is an absolutely amazing school. My oldest son attended 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade here and loved every day. My youngest started Kindergarten this year and his introduction to full day school was seamless. Both boys felt loved, invested in, and grew tremendously. They are also really great with special needs and do everything they can to ensure extra academic resources are available to those that need it. We recently moved away and it is hard to leave such a great school and staff.
