This school has felt like home almost since my beginning as a freshman. My classes and teachers have been pretty great, with a few exceptions here and there. Except for some specific issues, I have never felt excluded or unsafe in my school environment!
I liked the music department. The staff is wonderful, and the facilities are beautiful. Two wonderful theaters, a fully equipped band, orchestra, and choir room, over ten practice rooms (some sound-proof), a music production/ theory room, the whole nine yards. However, the school as a whole is so large that it becomes isolating very quickly. I would not recommend WHS for somebody who values community, good connections with guidance counselors and teachers.
One main thing that I think of when I think Wayzata is its diversity when it comes to classes, people, and experiences. I believe no two people are going to have the same exact experience in the school. You can get plenty of different classes for different things. There are plenty of people in my grade that I might never meet because we could have completely different schedules. I have been in Louisiana, North Carolina, and Alabama’s school systems and this school is by far the most diverse group of people that I have been with. I have had classes with people from Afghanistan, Vietnam, and a bunch of European countries. I have friends that have taken a bunch of classes of a different career path and they talk about their experiences and it is so different from mine.
