Straight As for Weston’s Public Schools

Weston’s public schools have continued their exceptional performance during the 2019-2020 school year. Our schools’ consistent outstanding reputation and results is part of the reason Weston is always near the top of “best places to live” lists.

Weston’s schools achieved a perfect 4.0 according to The Florida Department of Education’s 2019-2020 Florida School Accountability Reports. Each of the eleven elementary, middle and high schools that serve the Weston community was rated A.

The school grades provide an easily understandable way to measure the performance of a school. Parents can use the school grades and their components to understand how well each school is serving its students. Just like students, schools are graded on an A, B, C, D, or F scale. The grading program is made up of 11 components. There are four achievement components, four learning gains components, a middle school acceleration component as well as components for graduation rate and college & career acceleration.

Congratulations to the students, teachers, and administrators at Country Isles Elementary, Eagle Point Elementary, Everglades Elementary, Gator Run Elementary, Indian Trace Elementary, Manatee Bay Elementary, Falcon Cove Middle School, Tequesta Trace Middle School, Cypress Bay High School, Western High School and Imagine Charter School at Weston. Broward County Public Schools saw significant improvement in results across the district.

Indian Trace Elementary Principal Amy Winder says she is proud that her school once again achieved “A+” status. “The key to our school’s success continues to be the partnership of inquisitive students, supportive and involved parents, and a staff that is committed to their own professional learning for the good of the students.”

While congratulations are in order for each of Weston’s schools, this school year will be quite different. All of Weston’s public schools will be teaching students remotely for the beginning of this school year. Schools have made significant efforts to offer as many extracurricular activities as possible virtually.

Teachers are engaging with students using a number of new technological tools, including Microsoft’s Teams platform which allows teachers to hold discussions and give lectures much like they would in person. With the wonderful teachers and the dedicated families involved, we are confident Weston’s success will continue.
