Wayzata Public School District Reviews

I’ve loved my time here at Wayzata. I’ve been able to find my place with sports, activities and people. The majority of my teachers have gone out of their way to make sure I am successful and strive to reach my goals. Being a part of the dance team has been the highlight of my high school career. The program is amazing and I was able to be a part of the best team ever. I will truly miss Wayzata!

My high school gave me wonderful academic experience. I had countless opportunities to expand my knowledge on a numerous subjects. The teachers are all very helpful and caring. They provided ways to get involved in helping out our school and community. The students' engagement created a great sense of school spirit. The only downside of my school was the extremely competitive nature of it. Rather it be academic, sport, or college related, students would compete for positions and not support one another. The other negative to my school was the lack of diversity both racially and economically. I felt like there was not a good representation of other cultures. Despite these drawbacks, Wayzata Public Schools provide an excellent education as well as a strong curriculum and staff.
I did enjoy Wayzata, however there were things about it that I do not appreciate. First is that the school culture and kids there are very toxic. The diversity is particularly low, there was not a space that was safe for people to go away from harassment. The teachers were pretty good, but the math department needs to be completely revised in order to make things work. Academics wise, the school was fantastic in preparing me for college. When in attendance at wayzata I was surrounded by people who also had drive to learn and improve their selves. It gave me the competitive edge that I would have missed if I attended another school.
