    "This school has been nothing but one bad experience after another. My oldest was bullied and came home crying and nothing was done. The principle yells at the children and let's them sweat in the summer in this school or freeze during the winter. They never have enough school lunches and the kids get the vegetarian lunch when they run out ( raisins and salad ). The principal won't help the children that need help and are falling behind but she is always taking the credit for the gifted children that are there. This school always has some type of fund raiser and wants are help and our money but puts $0 twards these children. This principle replaces great teachers if they don't side or get along with her. The only option my husband and I feel like we have left is to go to a lawyer so our child gets what he needs before its to late. He is being left behind. I know at least 20 parents that feel the same way about this principal and their kids are having similar issues."

    "I cannot get my child out of this school fast enough. Wayne School is a "School of Excellence" with the state of Illinois. It's easy to be excellent when the education is dumbed down about 2 grades. There is a MAJOR problem with bullying in this school, especially once you get past 4th grade - and the administration does nothing. Way to much authority is given to parent volunteers. The classrooms are over-crowded and the school heating/cooling systems need to be upgraded. The teachers for for the lower grades are fine, but for 4th, 5th & 6th leave much to be desired!!"

    "Wayne school has the best teachers. They are innovative and dedicated. One retired teacher volunteered to go back and teach for the last 7 years because it is such a great environment for students."

    "My son has been attending Wayne for two years now and I do not think the kids are learnign as much as the other schools in the area. The prinicpal is very slow in responding to parent issues and everything is about fund raising. What about teaching the children what they need to know. In kindergarden they put my son on the school bus instead of the daycare bus and then blamed it on a parent volunteer. How scary to be left on a bus on your first day of school."
