I loved Wayzata! It prepared me so well for college and made me feel at home throughout my schooling there. All of the staff were very very helpful with whatever I needed or was struggling with. Everyone in the district was there because they wanted to and knew how amazing the district was. There are also sooooo many different clubs and activities that you can get involved with at Wayzata, everyone has their own place no matter what they like to do.

My experience at Wayzata Schools has been very good. I was able to make numerous amounts of friends. I also had the opportunity to take a Band class; I was able to learn how to play a little over 13 instruments. I was elected President of the Student Council, and was able to show my leadership skills with planning different events. I have had an overall great experience, and learned how to manage my time.

Something that I would recommend for the Wayzata Schools’ to teach could be to develop a better culture. I remember in my experience in Colorado, my Elementary School, “REMS,” did an exceptional job at teaching the importance of unity and inclusiveness toward others.

Wayzata Schools are overall great.
Wayzata Public Schools are consistently well rated for the academic standards, graduation rates, and achievement levels demonstrated by students. The teachers are generally passionate and willing to teach, there is a decent amount of diversity, and most students are prepared for the future. Sports are an important part of the schools, as are other extracurricular activities and clubs. However, the class sizes are larger than a lot of other districts, which makes it more difficult to obtain a sense of community. In the end, the Wayzata Public School district is a great place to learn and prepare for the future.
