Wayland Reviews

3 reviews
It's a very small town, with the same types of people. Children who move there from the city have no chance in mixing in with the other kids. There is nothing much to do, so most of the kids there turn to drugs/alcohol at very young ages. The parents and even police allow most of this activity. There have been multiply under age parties that cops show up to and tell them all just "take it somewhere else" or "get home safe". The schools are more focused on the behavior rather than the teaching/learning experience. Most teachers don't know how to deal with "different" types of personalities.

Many small minded residents that don't treat people very nicely. Nice country area and schools are decent. There isn't a lot to do in the immediate area.
The community is safe and family oriented
