Wylie Independent School District is a public school district in Collin County, Texas. Serving the cities of Wylie, Murphy, Sachse, St. Paul, and Lavon, the district has been around for more than a century. In 1901, Thomas Birmingham started the district after discovering parents in the area were struggling to fund the one school in the area. Birmingham had one condition – all residents in the district had to pay the taxes to keep the district. As the years went by, the Birmingham family continued to be involved with the district in some way. Even today, they provide scholarships to the 22 best graduating students each year. Because of all their care and involvement, the city of Wylie has honored the Birminghams with numerous things, including street names and even an elementary school.
Today, Wylie ISD is highly-respected among the all the districts in Texas, partly due to the high academic standards met by every school. Most of them have earned one or more additional designated distinctions, as well. Students continuously score above state and national averages in their SAT/ACT exams, producing National Merit Scholarships every year.
