Parent: We open-enrolled our child with autism to this school district. Even though it was 2.5 hours in the car each day getting him to school and back, it was worth every second. Unfortunately, we had to relocate to a different part of the state and leave behind VES. The new school I have my son in has a reputation of being "a good school district," but I feel they are nowhere near VES. Every member of my son's team, including the teachers, therapists, and para professionals were outstanding. My son loved attending school every day, and the only regret we have for moving was leaving VES. The team valued our opinions, and cared about our child almost as much as we did! The IEP process was effortless, and I felt each member of the team knew my son very well; they knew his strengths, his challenges, and how best to handle those challenges. These are things we are currently struggling with at the new school district. It just makes us miss VES all the more.

Senior: Wayland is a great experience for all students! The student body is less than 200 students and about half of the students are international. Overall, there are students from 32 different countries, which makes this school very diverse compared to all the public schools and many other boarding schools in the nation.
The Academy becomes strict when it comes to academics; They treat the school as if it were a college. The average class size is 14 students per class. With the class size being very small, there is more 1 on 1 times with the teacher during or outside of class.
Although athletics might not be the best, it is good for students to be able to get lots of playing time on the field or court, even though they are not a star player. There are also many clubs and other activities outside of athletics.
Overall, I think Wayland is a great school and I definitely recommend it!
