I enjoy Wayland high school because I feel challenged by the material I learn in school everyday and by my classmates who are all very intelligent hardworking people. The teachers are very helpful and are enthusiastic about what they do!

The Wayland School District is an exceptional public education system in Massachusetts. All of the teachers and faculty are one-hundred-percent qualified to be working at such a high level. All teachers strive for their students success. Wayland offers courses that suit the need of each student, such as intro, college prep, honors, and Advanced Placement classes. No matter the class level, each student is challenged to their own limit, still being able to flourish in such an environment.
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.
