This is a tiny 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 they do not advertise more and have a poor website because Wayland Academy can be the answer to a lot of parents’ anxious search for a great private neighborhood school.
Pros: Pros: Amazing passionate and dedicated teachers
Cons: Cons: Quite a lot of homework! But what amazing results!
