I like almost everything about Weaver! The teachers and administration really care about the students and truly want to see them succeed. Our school culture is also very vibrant and unique. However, not everyone feels included and Weaver has some of the same problems as many other public high schools. Also, the facilities really need work and seem like they haven't been updated in quite some time. It's either extremely hot or very cold in the building. This does not diminish how amazing the staff is and how talented the students are. Weaver is a place where academic excellence is encouraged and fostered as well as a place where students can grow in their artistic pursuits.

Weaver is an amazing school and offers something for everyone. If you attend for performing arts you also concentrate heavily on academics so you become a well rounded student. There are also career classes one can take if that’s more their outlet, but they still get immersed in the Weaver experience. The teachers know what they’re doing, the counselors and phenomenal, and you will receive plenty of one-on-one interaction with the faculty. Weaver could, however, have a better facility especially since the student body is growing larger, and there should be more attention given to some of the smaller departments such as piano and music production who need new equipment. Overall, I highly recommend this school.
Weaver Academy is a great school to attend if you want to further your experience within your performing art. But the academics are a lot harder than a normal high school, that being there can be a heavy workload. You just have to prepare yourself physically and mentally for it. The school itself needs a lot of updating, or all in all a new school needs to be built. The ceilings are falling apart, we have classes outside in trailers, etc. The people there are mediocre, you will have your pros and cons for teachers and staff. But again all in all it is a decent school to attend, your pva teachers are usually phenomenal and you can easily build up your resume or portfolio!
