My child attended Wyman last year for third grade. I have never seen so much craziness. While visiting I stepped into the gym to watch the kinders practice a lemonade song and saw a kindergarten teacher drag a boy across the stage. No teachers stepped in to help. It made me wonder what else happens there. Needless to say my child did not return for his fourth grade year.

We live a short walk from Mark Twain elementary I got her enrolled late for kindergarten and on the first day I got a call that their were two many kids and she was being moved to Wyman. It's her 1st year of school she was so upset to change. And I couldn't believe with a close as we lived we were sent across town. But after this 1st semester I'm so glad she was moved. She loves it and genuinely want to be there and her teachers love her and are just great. She behaves better there than home I'm just amazed at the progress she has made there that while this year the schools provide a bus to take the kids between schools I just go a short distance regularly to pick her up. I'm going to file a transfer request with Wyman to have her remain there for as long as we are in Rolla even though I will have to drive her everyday.
All three of my children attend Wyman. We have fallen in love with this school! The teachers are very dedicated and caring and our children are excited to go to school everyday! The PTO is very active and the teachers are very good at communicating with the parents. I will be sad when my children are too old to attend!
Our youngest son is autistic and has been enrolled in the special education preschool program at Wyman since November 2004. The teachers are wonderful and really care about the kids. I am able at anytime to drop by for a visit ask a question or just give an opinion about something. I always feel like my position as a parent is very respected and I will miss their friendships and professionalism when my son transitions into kindergarten.. I wish he could stay in their classroom but they are only to accomodate kids until they are five years of age..
We have been very happy with Wyman. Our son loves it and is very happy there. The teachers are great. The class size is a bit larger then we would like but overall it has been a wonderful experience.
