• Scott Gengler, Wayzata High School PrincipalGreetings,
    On behalf of all of the teachers, students and staff at Wayzata High School, I welcome you to our school community. Whether you are a student, parent or community member, we're here for you! Together, we will achieve a common goal – to equip our students with the skills and confidence they need to be happy, healthy and successful, both while here at WHS and long after they graduate.
    We know parent and community partnerships are the key to any successful high school and the reason why Wayzata has a long-standing tradition of excellence. Remember, this is your high school, so don't be shy about asking questions, sharing ideas and becoming engaged in our school community. Feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or simply to say hello. You may reach me at scott.gengler@wayzata.k12.mn.us or at 763-745-6610.
    Best wishes for a great school year!
