Weston METCO high school students may attend a summer review program to prepare for the upcoming academic year. The review session is a week long and cover a variety of courses.  Past offerings have included:  English 9 & 10, World History, AP US History, Geometry, Algebra II, PreCalculus, Physics, Biology and Chemistry.  Students attending summer academy have also visited MIT (pictured below).  The goal is to get students in grades 9-12 prepared for expectations in CP, honors and AP level courses. The review sessions are taught by Weston High faculty. This is a week of hard work for the students who choose to come back early and get a jump on their courses.
