Overall Wakeland is a good school in an exceptional area. However, every aspect of this area is extremely competitive. It is a place where you are probably not going to thrive unless you are exceptionally smart, exceptionally drive, exceptionally athletic. Kind of harsh but everyone grew up a star athlete or with parents who put them in coding classes before they could read. So while I was okay at a lot of different things I never felt like I was exceptionally good at one thing. Just your average jo!

Everything about this school is exactly what you want for your high school experience! The academics and sports are great! Easily one of the best high schools in Frisco and all of Texas. You are given the opportunity to participate in the best of the best sports shown by the 7 state championships in various sports in the 13-year school history. To go along with this is the even better academics which propels and prepares students for the highest of college success.
Wakeland High School has an overall very good atmosphere. The academic environment is very rigorous & competitive as there are many AP classes offered and the majority of students at this institution take advantage of these. This has resulted in the elimination of class rank at this school as most of the students are very high achieving and their class rank may not reflect this. This school has A+ athletic programs which do very well in district as well as state competitions, although school spirit is very low. The social atmosphere is not great at this school as many students form “cliques” and are not very friendly and involved.
