The courses offered in the Wellness program seek to provide students with academic experiences that provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to be healthy for a lifetime. Students will gain a fundamental understanding of the importance of growth and development, nutrition, emotional and mental health, social health, disease prevention, community and public health, substance abuse prevention, violence prevention, motor skill acquisition and application, physical fitness, and positive personal and social interaction.

Grades 6-12 Standards

In 2022 The Weston School Committee updated the graduation requirement policy. One change allows 12th graders to substitute their participation in extracurricular interscholastic athletics to count for physical education requirements. If a student follows the process from that policy, their athletics participation can satisfy physical education requirements for their senior year.  Click here to fill out the sports substitution application form (class of 2023 only).
