The facts are great, but I can tell you, from a more personal perspective, how great Wylie is because I have lived in Wylie since 1994! We have two great schools and our cry is AHMO!! I raised all my kids in Wylie awesome schools and we really enjoy not having to drive to Plano for movies and shopping anymore. We have watched our "one stop sign" town flourish and honestly still love Wylie, the city between two lakes!
