Can't say enough great things about Wakeland. Have 3 teenagers that go there. Two are involved in the award winning marching band. Excellent music program, keeps the kids busy. Marching season usually starts around July 15, so no more long boring summers! Fabulous director & staff take this band to numerous competitions annually.

My oldest daughter is a senior and has been on Wakeland's swim team since freshman year. Coach Howard truly cares about each & every one of the kids on her team, very close group with some going on to college with some sort of swim scholarship.
Wakeland soccer teams also do very well.
Academics at WHS are top notch with AP options in many classes for college bound students.
We moved from California specifically to be in FISD school district & couldn't be happier with Wakeland High School.

Wakeland is a wonderful school with many opportunities. The classes offered are varied and mostly rigorous, allowing students to create an experiences suited to meet their goals. While the district somewhat coddles students by allowing retakes for major grades and prohibiting final exams, students have the opportunity to prepare themselves for higher education through the courses they elect. Wakeland offers countless extracurricular activities and allows students to create new organizations with ease wherever they see a need. The teachers are wonderful, supportive, and passionate. There is, however, a lack of support from administration. The guidance counselors are almost useless when it comes to college applications and real guidance. The administrators do nothing about the highly competitive environment that is fostered among ambitious students. The teachers, however, make up for this. Overall, it is a wonderful school for a student who is willing to apply himself and go beyond.
Wakeland High School has worked hard to create an inclusive and safe atmosphere to allow students to learn and grow together inside its walls. The staff is deeply invested in making sure that every student has an equal opportunity to become not only academically successful but well rounded, productive members of society as well. Wakeland not only cares about the students academically but personally as well. Our school provides lectures on mental health, counseling available at all times of the day, and places to go and relax throughout the school. Being heavily involved in our school, I see the way that the atmosphere and community the school emits positively influences the student body by challenging each student to be the best version of themselves. I believe that my four years at Wakeland has given me the skills necessary to start my next chapter of life in college and beyond.
