WELCOME to Wakefield High School, home of the Warrior Nation. We are happy to have you and your family as part of our community, and can’t believe the 1st quarter of 2017-18 is over! We are the PTSA – Parent/Guardian-Teacher/Staff-Student Association, and we would love for you to join us!  (see Welcome Message from our PTSA Board)

  • If you are a freshman family or a new family to Wakefield (or Arlington), please visit the Resources for New Families page the PTSA has put together.
  • To understand how to get connected, please visit our Get Connected page. Messages are frequently sent through our PTSA-Boosters listserv – the Principal, counseling staff, activities director and our college counselor use this listserv as a primary means of communication. We communicate often, but are pretty good about putting the subject in the header so you can ignore information you don’t need or want. We also engage parents through robocalls (mostly second language parents) and APS SchoolTalk messages.

Your PTSA: A Parent-Teacher-STUDENT Association

We are are not just a regular Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) at Wakefield but a PTSA – the “S” stands for students. At every PTSA meeting this year, we invited students to speak with us about their activities, initiatives and concerns. It is a great way for us all to connect with our high school students, hear what is important to them and be sure we are meeting their needs. Come join us!

A good piece on the importance of relationships with students and how it can reduce failure and dropout rates. Grateful that Wakefield emphasizes relationships through home visits and other practices that help connect students to adults who know and care about them.

Thanks @WakeHistory - this was a terrific conversation. Also a great way to hear from our excellent educators. Hope @ARLnowDOTcom has additional conversations planned so we get to hear more of our teachers' thoughts on relevant topics.
