The Class of 2008 had the highest CAPT scores in the state in 2006.[3] In 2013 Weston High School was put on the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program list.[4] For the purpose of comparison with the achievement levels of similar schools, the state Department of Education classifies schools and communities in "District Reference Groups", defined as "districts whose students' families are similar in education, income, occupation and need, and that have roughly similar enrollment".[5] Weston is one of eight school districts in District Reference Group A (others are Darien, Easton, New Canaan, Redding, Ridgefield, Westport, and Wilton).[6]

The school is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.[3]
