15 Parent Reviews for Weston High School

Parents and the students ensure this school stays in the rankings. A handful of outstanding teachers that really shine but the Teacher's Union protects the bottom of the barrel and they seem to have quite liberal sick leave. Principal is trying to make it more personal but it still reminds me of an ...  Read more

This is a great high school and I'm very happy that my child attended this terrific school

Weston High School has been established as one of the best, if not the best, public high school in the state and one of the top public high schools in the nation. That's no small feat, and as a current student, I absolutely see how WHS achieves that lofty status. The teachers are, contrary to what many ...  Read more

This school is just like many other public schools and struggles to address any individual needs and doesn't really care about whether the student is actually learning. The language program is a joke where no one can actually speak the language that they are taking, what's more, it appears that both ...  Read more

As a current senior, I am afraid I must disagree with several of the comments below. The school does have strong academic departments, but the school seems only focused on academics. Sports aside, our extrascurriculars are a joke. We have 1 45 minute block once a week for clubs to meet. Other schools ...  Read more

The school used to be strong, supportive and produce very academic students who were well prepared for college. What happened? Much has changed in the past 5 or even 3 years. We can only blame the Superintendent and the School Committee. HS students are being limited to classes they can take, many ...  Read more

The administration of this school system needs to worry less about imparting their moral wisdom on the student body and be more concerned with strong academics--which are now taking a back seat. The academics at WHS are taking a downward spiral and as parents, we are happy that our last child will graduate ...  Read more

Hey, let's face it. College acceptance rates are at the top because of one main reason: genetics. The other factors for the high tier 1 and Ivy acceptance rates is parental legacy and the demographics--access to outside educational programs like private tutoring.The school does very little to promote ...  Read more

This is an exceptional public school system that is looking to improve further. College acceptance rates for the very top students as well as the middle of the class stack up well against private schools. They are moving to an Honors English offering in the fall.
