Weston Public Schools
Weston Schools have an outstanding reputation both locally and nationally.
The Massachusetts Department of Education report card for the district (3 elementary schools, one middle school and one high school) has an enormous amount of achievement and demographic information about the schools. The DOE also compiles per pupil spending by district, and in the 2013-14 school year, Weston spend $21,653 which is about 50% more than the state average of $14,518.

Students come from Field Elementary School which serves grades 4 & 5 after beginning at either Woodland or Country Elementary Schools, each with about 330 students. Weston Windows is the public integrated pre-school which operates two classrooms in each of the two elementary schools. The tuition for the half-day, five day-per-week program is $7,400.
