The teachers at Weston High School are on average great! The downside to it is that two teachers may be teaching the same exact class but will have completely different teaching lessons and methods and in that way, the grade you get in the class is not representative of soley how well you were able to learn, but instead on the teacher you have and how they present the information to you. Most teachers are approachable but there are a handful of teachers that would make a student scared or intimated to meet one on one with them.
Review Weston High School
The school is without doubt top notch in academics. Many of the teachers could have been or were at some point college professors and this shows in their teaching. The courses are demanding and prepare students well for college while having teachers with a deep understanding of the material. The school culture, however, is fairly toxic. Students are cut-throat and competitive, and there is an unhealthy emphasis on the college admissions process.
The diversity is something that the school and the administration is trying to work on. The METCO program creates a little diversity in the school system. But there should be a push to increase diversity. The school is becoming more accepting too. In 2016, the high school made a change to have genderless bathrooms. It creating a better culture but very slowly. Student involvement is very small but ties to make change like Black and Asian History Assembly tries to shed light on issues in and out the classroom. The school has a long way to go but it is making baby steps to change it's culture.
