Weymouth High School was first established in 1854. Since that time, it has gone through several incarnations:
Athletics and Activities
Weymouth High School students partake in a range of after-school clubs and activities. These activities include chapters of SADD and Amnesty International, a Student Senate, a Math Team, a Concert Band, a Choir, a Drama Club, an FRC Robotics Team, and a Yearbook Committee.
Weymouth High School also has many athletic teams. Fall sports include cheerleading, boys' and girls' cross country, dance team, football, golf, boys' and girls' soccer, swimming, and girls' volleyball. Winter sports include boys' and girls' basketball, boys' and girls' hockey, boys' and girls' indoor track, wrestling, and gymnastics. Spring sports include baseball, softball, boys' and girls' tennis, boys' and girls' lacrosse, boys' and girls' outdoor track, boys' volleyball. Ultimate (Sport), also known as Ultimate Frisbee, is also offered as a club sport in the spring, open to both boys and girls.
In the 2009–2010 Season, Girls Cross Country, Football, Wrestling, and Boys Outdoor Track were Bay State Carey Division Champions.
Weymouth High requires passing the MCAS and a minimum of 21 credits to graduate. A credit is rewarded each time a class is passed with an average letter grade of D- or higher, or at least 60%. The amount of credits is dependent on how often the class is taken. For example, a Calculus course that meets every day for the year will reward the student with 1 credit if that student passes. In classes that do not meet every day or that are only a semester long, such as Psychology, which is only for half the year, will receive reduced credits. In this case, Psychology meets every day in a 6-day cycle for either the first two or last two quarters of the term, so the passing student would receive .5 credits.
For the past 6 years Weymouth has received Academic Support Grant money to tutor students who have failed the Math and/or English MCAS exam. There are small numbers that need support for the retests. A six-week program is run for these students immediately prior to the exams. The students generally come from studies to tutoring. The student to teacher ratio is often 1:1 or 1:2. This individualized approach has been very successful.
The minimum amount of courses that one must take from 9th–12th grade are as follows:
In contrast with other educational institutions, WHS's non-vocational schedule structure is not static from day to day. The school year is based around a repeating seven-day schedule lettered from A to G with each day broken up into 7 blocks labeled 1 through 7. In a full-length school day, there will be Standard standard blocks of 45 minutes and one long block of 70 minutes that consumes either the preceding or proceeding block.
The Weymouth High Schools' Alumni Association is an independent, open-membership organization which was created and is operated by persons who have graduated from a Weymouth public high school during the period, 1900 to the present. Membership is open to all graduates of Weymouth High School, Weymouth North High School, Weymouth South High School, Weymouth Vocational-Technical High School, Weymouth Evening High School and Weymouth High School/Vocational Technical High School.
