Sierra School at Wylie

Predicated on strong collaboration and communication between Wylie Independent School District (ISD) and our in-district staff, our district programs are designed to achieve their greatest potential. The academic, social-emotional, and behavioral needs of each student are met through such means as a high staff-to-student ratio, individualized and small-group teaching approaches and a comprehensive behavior management system. Our staff works in unison with district special education and general education teachers to ensure that our students receive the maximum benefit from both district resources and those of our program.
