Wayland High School has a lot of hard-working teachers who are committed to getting the best out of their students and preparing them for college. Nearly every teacher I had was available outside of class time to help me understand the subject matter. The arts programs are all good, especially the theater department. Although there is a heavy emphasis on sports and the administration can be sometimes too strict/bureaucratic, I think I learned a lot from my time there.
We moved here specifically for the school system before we had children, and we have not been disappointed. One of our children had health issues for two years and the schools (elementary & middle) were wonderful about keeping her on track academically. Our other child has ADHD and the middle school was very hands-on with testing and recommendations.
