My daughter moved over from Plano schools after several frustrating years. WPA is perfect! The curriculum, classroom/homework balance, Teachers, students, etc. are all a great fit. Her progress has been amazing.

My son started in 1st grade and is now in high school. We love the school and the people. Homework load is just right.

The school has a wonderful Christian environment, however the homework load is horrendous. One child will continue in this school, but my 'slower' child will be going to a different school next year because he has no social life besides school and homework.

My son began at Wylie Prep in his 4th grade year. I wish we had started earlier. It is a great school with challenging courses in a christian environment. A welcome alternative to public school!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
