This is a samll school (non-for-profit) with a very innovative program that has been developed by the founders some 30 years ago. Based on reading and phonics, it fosters kids’ natural curiosity with reading, science etc. It is a very nurturing environment, where respect for each other and dedicated attention to the teacher are an essential part of the school life. Our daughter started in K and our son in pre-K. It is their 3rd year and they love going to school everyday! Wayland Academy also has a great full-time Pre-K program that is affordable compared to full time daycare, and provides so much stimulating joy to the little ones! It is just too sad nobody knows about it because Wayland Academy can be the answer to a lot of parents’ anxious search for a great private neighborhood school.

Wayland Academy is a really hidden gem. My daughter joined this school from pre-school. She is now in second grade. Teachers are great and the school encourages independent learning and realizes different kids learn at different pace.

We have had all six of our children attend this school. You really cannot beat small classroom size coupled with attention to matching curricula to individual students and loving care by the faculty.
