  • I think that weston is a great school I attend school here and I think that is a school that should be respected for what they are and who they are. I think that people don't respect us because they think that we think that we're better than everybody else but we're not we are just reagular people trying to make it through high schoool and yet make it fun for everyone else. But when we don't associate with people who are a bad example and who are bad role models then we are considered as showing snobbery. We are not snobs we are very good people trying to make a change in the world and stand up for what we belive for.

  • 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. I love Weston and it will always be my home. I would gladly send my children there. You will not be dissappointed.
