    Wayland is a unique place to go to high school. Students are somewhat sheltered because by the time you get to college...people are very different. Wayland will always have a special place in my heart because I know that I am truly privileged to attend such a fine school system.

    Great school equipped with many new tools in order to better prepare the already fantastic teachers. Great students. Great education. Enough said.

    This is a great school. With the new high school building being put in place and the swimming pool completely renovated (almost as new) students will definitely have more to benefit from.

    Fantastic school faculty and community. Our school is in desperate need of funds for a new building.

    Wayland really works hard to support the children who attend the school and to provide a great education. They have been helpful and really work to have their kids succeed.

    The school offers something for everyone from state champion athletic teams to award winning media development programs and art and culture along with some of the best academics in the state/nation. The teachers are second to none (biased parent). My daughter and many of her classmates are graduating and going to the best schools in the country. They are not only well prepared for the intellectual requirements needed to survive in todays competitive marketplace they are morally prepared to be excellent citizens and future leaders. I could not be happier for my decision to move to this town 12 years ago based on the quality of the school system. And now the process has begun to build a new high school facility which will only strengthen an already superior program.

    Strong classic high school with great extra curricular programs. Fine teachers & good program delivered in a small somewhat obsolete facility.

  • (7 years ago)

    I agree with the last review about the principal. however coming from a bigger school makes me say the extracurriculars are low quality and there aren't many of them. The teachers are bad and the education is very focused on test scores; not at all personalized

  • (7 years ago)

    great academics but has some really horrible teachers. The kids can be extreemly unwelcomeing and it's a very cliquey school. It will get you into collage though and is constitnly a challenge. The new principal has taken away almost all of our rights and traditions after just a few months.
