Who We Are

Weed High School is located in the town of Weed, California. Looming in the background of the school is the majestic 14,162 ft. Mt. Shasta. The mountain overlooks a town that was once a vigorous lumber-producing community. The economics have changed, but the environment still boasts the beauty of the Eddy mountains, the clean, crisp water of the Sacramento, Shasta, and Klamath rivers, and a multitude of wildlife that awe hunters, fishermen, and naturalists alike. This environment still affords some timber harvesting and invites plenty of outdoor recreational activity. Breathtaking scenery surrounds the campus and access to more natural beauty is never very far away. The school is far removed from urban life, but is fortunate to possess a diverse ethnic population of students. The student population mirrors the natural aesthetics of the school. The multi-ethnic, multicultural students at Weed High School respectfully and harmoniously relate to one another, giving a stunning campus an even greater sense of beauty.

Weed High School received a six year accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) in 2012.


Weed High School has incorporated a one to one computer to student ratio. All students are given a chromebook that they use during their high school career. Students are learning to use the computer as a tool to access curriculum and teacher developed assignments and projects. Part of this experience teaches research, collaboration, and communication skills that will be necessary for their future college and career choices.

Weed High School also provides all students with college and career exploratory experiences during each of their high school years. The following is an outline of these experiences:

Freshman: Interest inventories, future college and career exploration, Develop College and Career Plan, College visit
