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.

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.
I really enjoyed attending Wayzata High School. I believe it prepares students extremely well for college, and the resources and staff are very helpful people. There isn't anything that I would change about the school district!
