Alum: I went here my freshman year but then moved. I did not like my school then but I did not realize how good I had it. The classes are the best. They are always encouraging students to think independently and beyond the classroom. Classes were so fun compared to my other school. The best learning environment I have ever been in. Learning was easy and most students did very well. They give us 2-3 electives and one study hall each semester. This gave us the opportunity explore what we were interested in and have fun. There were not that many extracurricular activities, but they were fun and had good involvement. They have great technology and a beautiful school. They gave many freedoms to their students. The worst part about the school was that most students were spoiled rich brats. The social environment was awful. Everyone was super judgey and cliquey. You were only liked if they were rich and good looking. Too much pressure to be cool and people would pretend to be rich to be liked.

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!
