Oh boy. The absolute worst school committee. All they can do is keep throwing money at the school's shortcomings while raising taxes and retaining bad teachers. This school system is a mirage. Parents pay for price Outside tutoring, which raises the school's profile. So many weak parents who paid too much to live here cannot admit that maybe their money could have been better spent in a town that values leaning over standardized test perfection. Horrible, unqualified superintendent who has no energy and no motivation. They cant hire good administrators, or get rid of the bad ones.

Weston schools are excellent. They offer excellent variety of classes, especially for a school of its size - everything from film to Mandarin - and challenge students. Their music program is excellent. The parent who posted the above review a) can't spell "donated" and b) is a whiner. Weston's main flaw is that it has a lot of whiny helicopter parents who are quite entitled. They complain about everything (often doing so on public reviews) then wonder why Weston scores low on reviews. Shaking my head. This is an amazing school that definitely focuses on academics. The above parent should check out a school in the Midwest or inner-city Detroit. We are fortunate to have a community that values academics above sports and we are incredibly well-supported and well-funded.

check out the elementary standardized test scores compared with other wealthy towns in the state. Weston is dissapointing. Since it boasts the highest per capita income in the state, one would expect MCAS scores to fall within the top 10. NO WAY...not even close...and the schools use doanted funds to tutor the chidlren for MCAS! Also be aware that the overwhelming majority of residents pay for their chidlren to be professionally tutored in HS (and many well before HS!), so any SAT or MS/HS MCAS scores should be suspect. The school is very mediocre and this is why you see so many people who moved here for the schools eventually sending their chidlren to private. The elementary schools are particularly dissapointing. Parent involvement in the school is superb! This is the main reason why the schools appear to be so good; this and genetics. Art program and music program are excellent, though most miusic students are given expensive private lessons at home so this is opart of the reason. Academics are of low priority, especially in the elementary years.

A generous Michigan teen was growing his hair long to donate to Locks of Love, but was suspended from school as a result. Was this the right cut? We’ll discuss both side of the issue.
A recent ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court bans public school use by churches outside of normal school hours, and we’ll take a look at both sides of this issue.
