Principal's Welcome Message

Dear Students, Staff and Parents

JuliGivoniWelcome to the 2021-2022 school year! 

Since its founding in 1968, Weston High School has established itself as a beacon in the community with a tradition of excellence. Our staff works collaboratively to realize our mission – to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers, and inspired learners prepared to contribute to a global society.

Empowering students means not only advancing their academic skills, but also refining their social emotional awareness and supporting their developing creativity and innovation. As such, we offer comprehensive curricular and co-curricular programs designed to challenge students to achieve their fullest potential. 

I am proud to assume the leadership of such a vibrant learning community, and I am fortunate to be able to work with eager students, passionate educators, and supportive families as we build upon the extraordinary record of achievement and contribution that has been the legacy of Weston High School.

I wish you a wonderful school year!
