I went to Weston and my children go to weston I have 2 that need special ed. I am not with the "in crowd" and my children get picked on alot. I think that you have to be part of the family to get somewhere in this school. My daughters teacher talks on her cell phone about a son that got introuble with the law. Homework is crazy and my children do not understand half of the stuff they send home and say the teacher does not help them. I have called and set up meetings and nothing ever gets done. I hated Weston when I went there and still hate it. I do not think that they help children with special needs at ALL.

Excellent school who have teachers who care about their students. Students are well prepared for post-secondary education.

I went to Weston High School. It is an amazing school. I personally know the teachers, and they are some of the best in the state. Weston is the only school in our parish to receive the Exemplory Acedemic Growth award multiple years in a row. Mrs. Potts is the new principal, and she is doing a great job. Of course there are clicks... but you will find that at any school. I love Weston and it will always be my home. I would gladly send my children there. You will not be dissappointed.

It is unfortunate really, a town that lacks its own zip code with a god complex. I would not send my dog to Weston after attending there. Everyone knows there is an 'inner-ring' of favorites. Everyone knows who they are too. And too bad if you aren't one! I am not impressed with the teachers, the basketball team, the students, or the building even.

I am a proud graduate of Weston High School. Although I only attended the last two years of high school there, I still see it as a blessing. Most can not make comparisons if you have never attended else where. No matter what school you attend there will always be clicks. It's up to you to make the best of the one your in. How could you not expect favortism in a school when admit it or not we all show favortism in one regard or another. As for the teachers at Weston, I personally know several and would like to applaud them for the good works they do. I think it might be shocking to a few who submitted a review to know that Principal Potts should be referred to as a 'she.' If that escaped you then maybe others things have as well. Weston gets a 10 from me!

I have attended Weston High School and i have beleived and still belive that this school is absolutely horrible! When Principal Mr.Alford left, it went totally downhill. Current Principal Dr.Potts, tries to make herself seem like she's making everything better by making things more strict, but is actually making things worse for students and parents. Getting ISS and OSS for stupid things such as shirts being untucked or having gum or candy in your back pack. Many high school students at Weston dispise her and Weston all together because of the 'cliches' that students and teachers make for themselves and other students. Basketball and baseball players are also very favored over regular students at Weston. As a 3 year cheerleader, i have experienced the favoratism over other students, even on school trips. I feel that this school is unsatisfactory and my children will never attend Weston!

I have two children currently attending Weston High School. Academically I believe that Weston is an amazing school. I too have noticed that 'certain' students tend to get away with misbehavior whereas others are punished quickly and sometimes unreasonably. The question is this though, would you prefer the school to be too lax or too strict? Is there a medium? I have been pondering that question most of this year. I was extremely upset to see a new principal come in and I have yet to determine whether the new prinicipal is 'right' for the school or not. In comparison to other schools in this parish and schools in the surrounding parishes I must say Weston is a very nice school!

I am a student currently attending Weston High School. Most of these reviews are very upsetting. Although some of them are true, Weston is a very good school to attend. I have been going to this school for since my seventh grade year, where I am now a junior and will be graduating from here. All schools have their problems and downfalls but Weston is by far the best school I have been to. I attended Southside Elementary School and Jonesboro Hodge Middle school before I came to Weston. I love Weston High School and it's a very good school. The teachers are great and help you with your needs. So before you put down this school, try it for yourself. It's a truely great school.

My son attends WHS. From the beginning, I've noticed there's an inner circle of children from certain 'families' who get away with acts that would mean instant punishment on regular students. In recent years there have been hazing incidents, and racial tension has begun cropping up. I feel the school would benefit if teachers were not allowed to have their own children attend, but I realize that's not going to happen. There is a tight ring of inner politics that goes on here, and while it makes it uncomfortable at times, out of this area, Weston is by far the best option.

I have two children in this school (one of whom is ADD) and one that will start this year and I have been very satisfied overall with the level of education that they are receiving. The principal is excellent...very strict but very caring. I was taught by this principal when I was in high school. He is an experienced educator and I appreciate all that he does for our children. I have had a couple of teachers that I haven't been too pleased with but you will have that with any school system and overall I can say that I am VERY pleased with the quality of education that my children are getting at Weston.We have raned 1st in the parish with our test scores several years in a row, which is something that I am very proud of.

All of my family attended Weston High School. It has always been a great source of pride for the Weston community. I am very proud to see that it is a school of academic distinction. I personally know many of the teachers at Weston and I know that they are doing a great job of educating our future leaders. Congratulations Weston faculty and students for a job well done.

I attended Weston K-12 and LOVED every second of it. I would suggest this school to anyone that wants to learn and to be disciplined. As far as the principal, he is there for the kids and does a GREAT job.

this school really is bad. everyone thinks they are better than you. I would never allow my children to go there so thats why I moved. The teachers are very unhelpful. The principal is arrogant and loves his power trip. I would rather be taught by the custodians than the teachers there. So when picking a school go elsewhere because this school is a disgrace to humanity and a disgrace to its community.

My children attended this school for 5 years. 2 Were in special resources classes. One was on medication and when he was on it he slept all the time even in school and made a's, but when the doctor pulled him off it he started doing his work and made f's. The class is under staffed for kids with special needs. The only thing my child learned was not to say a word and he would be alright. They all graduated at another school where the teachers worked one on one with them. I would'nt recomend this school for any special needs child.
