A Town on the East Coast that is extremely close to Philadelphia. Many of the kids who go there are excessivally good looking, have rich parents, and own everything they want. You do not exsist if you do not consistantly wear ralph lauren, lilly pulitzer or lacoste polos, and if you do not use the correct launguage while interacting, then nothing will make sense to the people you are talking to. (Language consists of the phrases "mad" "chill" and "straight". Often kids will be sent off to boarding school due to bad behavior, and then kicked out since boarding school suplys more drugs than a rich wyo kid can ask for. During the summer if you do not sail or travel around the world then you most likely belong to a rich summer club (or green valley) that has either golf or tennis. Depending on who you involve yourself with, you could get nice friends, or friends who will always be your enemies. (also, parties are off the hook)The most popular sport is water polo and lacrosse (mainly for boys) and most all the water polo boys are exremely gorgeous and are excessive stoners.
Sebastian: That dude didnt pop his coller today, his polo wasn't even lacoste or ralph lauren
Dylon: Dude thats not straight, lets pop him at lunch after we hit that joint
Sebastian: Shyea dude, that sounds mad chill
Laura: Excuse me bitches but that doesn't seem right, i give him points for at least layering the nantucket red and sailboat yellow
Guys: True True that chick has a pretty heavy reason...thats chill
Sebastian and Dylon: Tall blondes with aviators and rainbows, IQ ranges from 55-75 points
Laura: Gorgeous girl who gets every guy she wants, blonde too and matches polos with everything.....chill
Wyomissing is one of the top ranked public schools in United States, let alone Pa. Anyone talking shit against Wyo is either jealous or has no idea what the hell they are talking about. Yes there is old money here, and sometimes that's sickening to deal with, but for the most part it is hard working parents who want to see the very best for their kids. I grew up in a humble part of Berks and moved to Wyo years later...so I know both sides of the tracks.
The Sports teams are well coached and the coaches themselves are very well respected. For such a small enrollment, they make the most of their talent. I am proud of the Spartans and their commitment to winning.
Now, for the downside of all this great education..
The school taxes here are out of control and the Superintendent is the biggest bitch in the East.
After everything is said and done, Wyomissing has a great tradition of being an all around great school for kids.
As someone who lives in the heart of Wyomissing I am really surprised by all the comments on this board. Wyomissing is not just for wealthy people. There are plenty of houses that are not mansions. There are semis, townhomes, and condos as well. No one in my neighborhood or any of the blocks around us drive a BMW or Mercedes. They are just regular hard working people. These posts all sound like they are made from the same teenagers. It is sad that is the image that they are portraying about this adorable suburb. The houses are old and charming and there is a gorgeous park system.
Wyomissing is a beautiful area to live in.
As an honors student and resident of West Reading, I was definitely interested in reading your twisted thoughts of the city I have lived in for the majority of my life. I always find it entertaining when I hear people talk about how they cannot walk through West Reading without getting shot. That's bull shit. I am not an illegal immigrant. I have not grown up in broken family. Just because I have not grown up in a family of doctors or lawyers does not mean that I am a worthless idiot nor do I feel at all inferior to my rich Wyomissing peers. In fact, in at least one respect, I feel that I am ahead of them, by which I mean some, including the writer of this wonderful definition, and not all, since I do not stereotype like others. I feel that I am ahead because I do not make such ignorant statements like the writer of this entry does. Have you ever lived in West Reading? Do you have any first-hand experience in the city whatsoever? If the answers to these questions are no, then you have no right to be making such statements.
In case you are thinking that I may be one exception of someone who does not live in Wyomissing but is not like other West Reading residents, I know many other people in West Reading who are in honors classes and go against your definition of a West Reading citizen as well.
A typical middle class town in southeastern PA. Because someone from a surrounding town got the wrong idea when they saw one of the very few mansions in town, they seem to have gotten the idea that everyone here is rich, snobby, overconfident, and/or over medicated. Not even close to the truth. Turns out, these kids have to babysit and shovel walkways like the rest of you to make their spending money. While most are 'comfortable' (not living paycheck to paycheck or in boxes on street corners), nobody is living in the OC, buddy. Also, its not fair to assume that people living in West Reading are illegal immigrants. It makes you sound like a douche.
'Oh you're from Wyomissing? You must have some good coke connections!'
'Nope, closest I ever got to blow was watching Johnny Depp.'
Wyomissing. Where to begin. Wyomissing is an upper class city outside of Reading PA. Everyone thinks we're preppy jerks. That is, for the most part, true. But people highly over exaggerate the attitude of the general populous of Wyomissing.
I live in this city. Always have. Does my family own any BMWs, Mercs, or Lexuses? No. Does a large chunk of Wyo? Yes. But can't judge a city till you've met everyone.
Where I live Bitch!!!! Wyomissing!
aka as wyo
1. filthy rich town outside of reading. pa
2. a pile of crap
3. a high school full of rich spoiled rotten pricks with spiked hair that buy all their clothes at the Hollister store and drive their mommy and daddy's bmw/lexus/benz to school.
Hey, watch out! don't step on the stinking pile of wyo over there that just came out of a dogs ass.
Q: Hey, did you see that spoiled rotten kid over there drivin his moms lexus at the Hollister store?
A: Yeah, he is from Wyomissing - go figure
Haha!! Wyomissing got their asses handed to them in that soccer game!
wow just for the record, everyone has definately blown it out of proportion. Although I don't like where I live, you've got a lot of it wrong. First of all, we don't have a water polo team, therefore, not every person in wyo plays that sport. Nobody goes to the f***ing starbucks...hard bean is where it's at and people from other schools hang out there too. Obviously, you are confusing the majority with the minority because not every single person goes to a party every night to get high and wasted. As much as you don't want to believe it, some of us are human beings and we go to movies and coffee shops to JUST TALK. Fyi, not all of us are the geniuses that you think we are. I know a good number of rich whores that can't tell left from right. We are good at sports and there are quite a few rich people that happen to get everything they want, but again, that is NOT everyone. You may see this as a crusade for wyomissing and it's defense, but you are wrong. It is merely a clarifying gesture so that if you decide to criticize wyomissing, you should make sure you get it right and know exactly what the hell you are talking about.
Person A: Oh, I want a new car!
Person A's parent: Anything you want pumpkin so that you can run our family into the ground in debt and disgrace. After all, we live in Wyomissing and we are all so perfect!
