 From The Principal

Dear Wiley Families,

As this school year comes to an end, so does my career at Wiley. After 40 years in Utica Community Schools, I will be retiring at the end of the month. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Wiley’s students, parents and staff for making my 17 years at Wiley such an enjoyable and rewarding experience. I feel very fortunate and privileged to have worked with such an outstanding group of people!  To all of the wonderful Wiley students, you are simply the best! Thank you for your continued effort to work hard, to get along with others, and to make Wiley such a great school. To the parents, I cannot tell you enough how much I have appreciated all of your support, as well as all the time and energy you provided each and every year to help ensure all students have a positive experience! To the Wiley staff, the relationships you have built with your students, along with your love and commitment to them, is what I will always remember. You have truly made a difference in the lives of so many students!

 Thank you all! I will surely miss you!

Have a safe and relaxing summer!

Chris Cassin




Our Mission
The mission of our school is to create and maintain an environment that ensures that every member of the school community reaches a high level of academic achievement as determined by local, state and national standards. We commit to a comprehensive system of support to assure this outcome.

Our Philosophy
‚ÄčWe the staff, students, and community of Wiley strive to develop the whole person who grows academically, socially, and emotionally in an environment that encourages life-long learning and productive living.

“Summer slide” is a true phenomenon. Summer slide is when students lose some of the academic gains they made during the previous school year, from lack of practice during the summer months. Read on to find out how to stop the summer slide from happening with your child in reading! 

Six books to summer success: Research shows that reading and rereading at least six books during the summer may keep a reader from falling behind. When choosing the six books, be sure that they are just right — not too hard and not too easy.
How do you choose the books….Take advantage of your local library. Ask for help selecting books that match your child's age, interests, and abilities. Libraries often run summer reading programs that motivate kids to read, so find out what's available in your area. Also check scholastic.com booklists for recommendations.

Utica Community Schools is Michigan's second largest school district.   

Student achievement in the district outpaces all county, state and national averages. The district's graduation rate is 12 points higher than the state average and students and staff are regularly honored for excellence.
