First, this is an actual statistic taken from the school's annual report card that they submit to the government and the public, 92% of the students here are white. 4% are black, 3% are hispanic, and 1% other. NINETY-TWO PERCENT!!! Literally, this town is pretty much all white. Hence, you cannot blame the town's downfalls on the West Reading population, it would be frivolous since most of the town is white rich kid.
Secondly, YES this town is infested with wealthy people. This town spawned Taylor Swift, the country star (who, to the town's humor, has announced that she was raised on a farm in Wyomissing, and there is no farms in Wyomissing). If you gone two blocks down Wyo and haven't spotted a rich girlie with oversize sunglasses, bleached hair, clutching a cell phone that was over $300, blasting whatever tops MTV's hit list with their iPod at the time in Daddy's convertible, then you may just have walked out of Wyomissing. (By the way, NEVER walk in Wyomissing, everyone will stare you down with a look on their face going 'Why are they walking????') And yes, it is true that most of these chicks wear Lacoste polos and carry their schoolbinders in oversized Coach or Vera Bradley bags. Shopping sprees every other weekend at King of Prussia mall! Because clothes isn't reusable, except flip flops and Uggs (which you need in every color available). Somehow, they manage the miracle of acing all the AP classes possible and having a 5.2 GPA (on a scale of 4) while still being inconcievably dim-witted. Maybe it helps to be "extra close" to your math teacher or cyber with your band director, who is dumb enough to save all the e-mails on his school pc.
More recently, a small percentage of the younger girlies who live in big houses and have easy carefree lives have decided to become emo, doll up in AFI merchandise and cry about how miserable they really are "on the inside" and how hardcore their favorite bands are (MCR, Fallout Boy etc...)
The slang. These kids HARDLY deserve the right to utlize the term "ghetto" under any circumstance, because they have no idea what ghetto is. However, the trend continues.
Athletics. Wyomissing can do track and tennis, that's about it. Sometimes they can do football. The soccer team SUCKS. Wilson always kills them.
By the way, Wyomissing does NOT have a water polo team.
Drug usage and alcoholism in Wyomissing: yes. Not too much drug usage in females, however males engage in overpriced marijuana and cocaine/confectioner's sugar mixtures. Alcoholism is a yes for both genders.
In conclusion, this town is absolutely ridiculous, a seemingly fictional town from a cheesy teenie bopper book about preppy girls.
Non-Wyomissing girl: This yellow sweater I bought from Abercrombie & Fitch last night.
Wyomissing girl: Yellow? Is that anything like Caribbean Sunrise?
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.
'Nope, closest I ever got to blow was watching Johnny Depp.'
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.
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!
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.
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!
