Learning Environment - Weston

Weston Elementary was built in 1963, with additions in 1990 and 2020. Our current student enrollment is approximately 530 students. Weston holds a variety of district specific programs and special education programs for students with a variety of learning needs (learning, emotional, physical, speech, etc).  

Our staff employs the team-teaching concept so your child may receive instruction from a variety of certified teachers. In doing so, we use a variety of strategies for mathematics instruction, incorporates a “hands-on” science approach, and integrates writing across the curriculum. In addition, Weston uses technology as a learning tool. Computers are integral in your child’s learning experience, and he/she will gain many computer literate skills as well as use this technology in his/her day-to-day learning. 

We will continue to promote wellness for students, staff, and the community. We will encourage healthy eating and increasing physical activity. Along with a healthy body, we teach students the importance of teamwork and social skills and will reinforce appropriate use of these skills. We also recognize students for their academic and behavioral success. 

The DC Everest district employs specialists to assist the schools in developing the total child. Certified personnel provide music, art, guidance, physical education, and library instruction. A school counselor is also available for individual, group, and classroom counseling.  

Weston Elementary is a STEAM school! STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Students will have a maker time each week as part of their encore time. Makerspace will be a time for our students to create and experiment in a very hands-on way. We will also focus on project-based learning, exploration, and creativity, as much as we can. This is a great opportunity for our students to explore and learn in an environment that promotes learning of all kids. We want to give opportunities to all students to learning a way that suits them best. STEAM doesn’t focus on classroom learning but fostering a love of learning that will last a lifetime. We want our students to become independent, creative learners who know how to collaborate and use what they learn in their future endeavors.  

As what we do, “WE DO FOR CHILDREN”
