WPA is a neighborhood school, located on 10 picturesque acres in a safe, west side Detroit neighborhood. We value the partnership with our parents and neighborhood association. Bimonthly events are held to celebrate the accomplishments of our students and nurture the relationships of our stakeholders.
The staff participates in focused professional development 12 days a year that directly relates to the Weston educational program. Professional development is embedded to support Success For All (Reading Program), 6 + 1 Traits (Writing Program), data driven instruction andCHAMPS (School wide PBS system). The Common Core aligned math curriculum includes a variety of research based resources such as Go Math!, Everyday Math, Houghton Mifflin Math and Prentice Hall. In addition, new staff members participate in Weston University, a course taught by the school leaders, that provides an in-depth study of the school’s philosophies and all instructional programs.
