Academics

The mission of the Weston School district is to provide each student the opportunity to pursue personal excellence. Toward that end, Weston High School offers a rich and expansive program that requires the student to plan and make decisions based on personal strengths, goals and interests.

The high school curriculum is based on our school mission. Specific learning expectations are required and embedded into course assessments; these expectations and the importance of the Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) are noted in the Program of Studies.

Weston graduation requirements, the student's personal abilities and interests, and the student's future plans should serve as the basic guide in the selection of courses. Students are encouraged to consult  with appropriate individuals such as Weston High School Guidance counselors,  teachers, and parents/guardians.

Credits in all disciplines are required for graduation. Since our co-curricular program is designed to complement our academic program, opportunities in this area should also be considered in the overall planning process.

Weston offers a number of honors level courses. Honors course expectations are significantly greater than in the standard program. In fact, taking multiple honors level courses may require the student to reexamine after and "out of school" commitments in order to have the time to meet the demanding honor standards.

Students are encouraged to design a program of study that is personally challenging and requires personal growth.
