Wayland Union Schools Reviews

Wayland union schools is very biased toward certain students. Students that participate in clubs and activities outside of the school are looked down upon. Those faculty members with students that go to the school automatically becomes popular, get homecoming queen/king, make varsity on sporting teams and get into clubs easier. This affects other students surrounding them by not getting positions they deserve. Most teachers are very easy going but others expect a lot out of us without any instruction. Instead of putting funding toward a safer football field, they spend money on new signs, parking lot, and iPads. Also, our school doesnt let us carry backpacks which causes many tardis and it's inconvenient. Some positives about the school though is most students are very accepting, music is appreciated by students, and our food is pretty great.

I have had a fairly good experience at Wayland. Many of the teachers have made me excited for my future and have greatly prepared me for the endeavors I have ahead of me. However, I feel as though many more opportunities could be provided to students interested in the math and science areas of study. There are very few classes in these subjects beyond the basic, entry level classes and the various, non-entry classes consist mainly of AP. I would like to see elective classes in these areas be offered to students in the future, allowing them to further dive in to subjects that interest them. Classes in areas such as genetics, research, trigonometry, and many other specific topics in math and sciences should be offered. These classes would allow students to discover new areas that they love before entering college and taking the time to find what they actually want to major in.
There is something for everyone at Wayland Union Schools. The district has a small town feel with larger city opportunities! Big enough to matter, small enough to care!
