About Us

The Community

Wayland is a picturesque New England town located 19 miles west of Boston. It was settled in 1638 as "Sudbury," and today retains much of its colonial era charm. Old stone walls, open fields, many acres of conservation land, Lake Cochituate, and several large ponds characterize Wayland's landscape. Within the community, there are many recreational and enrichment opportunities for families.

Town residents share a long-standing commitment to the school system which enjoys an excellent reputation both regionally and nationally.
