Pros: Wakeland High School has excellent academic standards and most of the teachers are inviting and committed to teaching. My child really likes the 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, don't count on your child getting any decent parts.
