Wayland Public Schools Reviews

It is a great school system but I feel that it is uber liberal, especially in high school. The academics are absolutely outstanding, and after school there are literally hundreds of activities for students. The teachers want you to not only pass their class, but to actually learn the material and will meet with you whenever possible.

I am a fellow Wayland High School graduate and a metco alumni. I would rate my overall experience with 4 stars because although I was introduced to new cultures and received an excellent education, I do not believe I was pushed enough because I was a metco student and I felt that my own culture and background was not recognized enough in this predominately white school system.It has known for metco students to be in intro or college level courses and I don't believe it's because the students are not equipped to handle the course, I think the problem lies in the teacher not looking at a student's full potential. From a social standpoint this school could do a better job with recognizing other cultures. During my Sophomore year Black history was completely ignored. This caused me and other students of color to feel as if we mattered less in this school and that our “history” is not important.
Wayland High School prepares everyone very well for college with its rigorous coursework and fantastic teachers and curriculum.
