Wakeland is a strong academics oriented school. They push the kids into thinking outside of the box and they have such a wide variety of AP classes.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree

I do feel some of the teachers could benefit from more training. We have had a couple of teachers that we felt where not very helpful.

Pros: Wakeland High School has excellent academic standards and most of the teachers are welcoming and devoted to teaching. My child really likes this school and is getting an excellent education in my opinion. Cons: The theatre teacher has her favorites and consistently gives the lead roles to these students. If you are not the President of the Booster Club, your child will probably not get a lead part or any speaking part for that matter, no matter how talented he or she is. My child still loves this class even though there is an blatantly obvious bias for a handful of students.

Wakeland is a academically strong school. After sending our child to private school, then enrolling him at Wakeland I could not be more pleased. Strong faculty, excellent sports program and great extra curricular activities make for a well rounded student. They excel at it all. My child now attends one of the top universities in the country. We could not be more pleased.

Wakeland has some of the best dedicated staff I have ever encountered. I have seen the Band Kids up at school at 6:15 AM to practice and then attend school all day. Not only do they excel in band/marching band, the excel individually in their instrument and academically. Most of the kids also hold down jobs and volunteer within the community. Most of the Band kids are commended on TAKS test. The best way to enjoy High School is to become involved.

If by the time our kids are in high school we don't ask that they act mature when do we ask? By their age they should act mature! Yes kids will be kids but there is a time and place for all of this. I have senn these teachers give countless hours of help here/there and encouragement. Seek and you shall find! Perhaps you should visit the band hall! These teachers are there for the kids night/day. These kids thrive in school, band and also hold down jobs! These kids work their butts off to be the best they can be. Wakeland is the best school around, but you have to get involved. So quit your whining and wake up and do something with your live and yes act mature.

A place to belong, grow, and become! You will find many good, loyal friends. You can also depend on the faculty to actually care about and for you.

Wakeland expects students to act mature and is a bit too strict on dumb things like dress code and the off campus lunch policy. The classes are WAY to easy and they dont push the students enough. They spend too much time trying to help the kids who arnt passing and never pay attention to the kids who are actually getting good grades.
