Welcome to Weston High School-Your school of choice

We are a school of choice serving students from 9th-12th grade.  Weston High School was founded in 1986 by Linda Weston.  At that time she was an Assistant Principal/Vocational Director at Arlington High School.  Linda was concerned that students who dropped out of school had no other options within the district.  They needed a place to go.  With this vision in mind, she created the Arlington Alternative School where she remained principal until 1992.  In 1994, the student body voted to change the name to Weston High School in Linda's honor.

Dear WHS Parents /Guardians, 

As most of you are aware, there has been a great deal of policy changes at OSPI surrounding student discipline this year. At Weston High School, we pride ourselves on taking proactive, non-traditional approaches to help reach and teach our students. We are excited to announce that on Wednesday December 4, 2019 from 8:00am until 10:30am, The IF Project will be facilitating a whole school assembly, which will include the screening of The IF Project documentary film and the sharing of personal narratives from the speaking team. We want to open up this unique assembly to not only all of our students, but also their parents and guardians.

Since 2009, I have worked closely with this Seattle based non-profit organization, from coordinating interventions with the program with my students in North Carolina to serving on their Board of Directors from 2016-2018. I have yet to find a program as effective as The IF Project for reaching our most struggling students. During the whole school assembly on December 4, our students will hear the stories of The IF Project speaking team about what somebody could have said or done (during their formative childhood years) that could have changed the path that led them to incarceration. The team will be accompanied by Detective Kim Bogucki, from the Seattle Police Department, who started The IF Project over a decade ago in her quest to help serve the kids that were ending up in the back of her police car.

It is our goal that by hearing the stories of the speaking team, which includes reflecting on mistakes, overcoming tragedies, and insight into prevention, that our students will walk away inspired and willing to ask for help when they need it. If you'd like to join us, please check in at the main office. To learn more about the organization, visit TheIfProject.com.

In the event you do not wish to have your child participate, please reach out to me directly.

Thank you, 

Andrea Dixon-Hundredmark
Principal
