2023 DESE School & District Report Cards Published

February 15, 2024

Dear Families:

Every year, each public school and school district in Massachusetts receives a report card. Just as your child’s report card shows how they are doing in different subjects, district and school report cards are designed to show families how our schools are doing in different areas. Following are links to Weston’s 2023 district and school report cards:

Weston Public Schools Report Card

Country School Report Card

Woodland School Report Card

Field School Report Card

Weston Middle School Report Card

Weston High School Report Card

The report card includes multiple measures of a school’s performance – more than just MCAS scores. It represents a new way of looking at school performance, by providing information on student achievement, teacher qualifications, student learning opportunities, and more.

Report cards are designed to be useful tools for everyone connected to our schools. Families can use the information to have meaningful conversations with us about what the school is doing well and where there is room for improvement. Community and education leaders can use the information to better understand how to support students and our schools.

You will notice on our report card that we are doing quite well in a number of areas, including our overall standardized test scores, completion of advanced coursework, attendance, and graduation rates. You can also see a few areas needing attention: standardized test scores among our high-needs subgroups and MCAS growth in mathematics. We encourage you to become involved in helping us improve our schools. We see parents as critical partners in the success of our students and school, and we are grateful for your continued support.

Finally, if your child attends a school that receives federal Title I funds – Woodland School or Weston Middle School – you also have the right to request the following information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers:

  • Whether your child’s teacher is licensed in the grade levels and subject areas they teach
  • Whether your child’s teacher is teaching under an emergency license or waiver
  • The college degree and major of your child’s teacher
  • Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

If you have questions about our school’s report card, would like to become involved in school improvement activities, or would like to request information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher, please contact your child’s principal or one of us.

Sincerely,

Dr. Karen Zaleski, Superintendent

Dr. J. Kimo Carter, Assistant Superintendent for Teaching & Learning
