The students in this photo represented Weston High School at the JFK Library and Museum's annual federal budget simulation on 3/23/17, where students from around Massachusets use national fiscal data to determine priorities and build a mock federal budget.  The participating students were: Nikki Liu, Joanne Lee, James Summers, Aleka Agre, Valerie Lehr, Kyleshia Buchanan, Spencer Braunsein, and Joseph Lydon.



Spring 2008 National History Day
The history/social studies curriculum goals are to help students acquire the knowledge, judgment, and skills to participate intelligently and responsibly in civic life and to continue to learn for themselves. Essential skills of reading and writing expository materials, using library resources and technology, reading maps, interpreting documents and data, preparing research papers, and participating in discussions are taught and reinforced in all courses, grades 9-12.

All courses have a required summer reading component. Students are assigned one to three titles to be read by September and are responsible for obtaining reading lists when they select their courses. An assessment of the students‘ understanding of the books is done in the fall.
