A Career at Weston Academy

Weston Preparatory Academy (WPA) is one of the top performing schools in Detroit.  The staff works in collaborative grade level teams to provide high-level instruction and high expectations to our 300, K-8 students. All of our technology-rich classrooms include a Promethean board, a set of Activote clickers, a document camera and notebook/netbooks for all students to support instruction. Teachers and students have subscriptions to Studyisland.com, Brainpop.com, and Readingeggs.com.

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 and CHAMPS (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.

We are looking for energetic, talented and focused teachers who want to be part of our positive working team with small class sizes.  If you want to be part of a school culture with high expectations for all, collaboration at every turn and generous benefits then you need to apply today!
