  • Algebra 1 and Geometry EOC Testing Information

    Susan Evans
    The Weiss School offers the Florida Statewide Assessment (FSA) End of Course (EOC) exam for either Algebra 1 or Geometry. Passing one of the two End of Course exams will meet the requirement for graduation from a Florida public high school.
    Both the Algebra-1 and Geometry EOC are computer-based tests administered in two 90-minute sessions on the following dates.  Students must attend both sessions to complete the exam.
    Session 1: Wednesday, May 3rd - 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm (no calculator)
    Session 2: Wednesday, May 10th - 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm (approved calculator allowed)
    To register, please complete the survey on the link below:
     Who should take the EOC? 
    • Students currently enrolled in Algebra 1 Honors.
    • Students currently enrolled in Geometry Honors but have not taken the Algebra 1 EOC. Your child may use a comparative score on the Geometry EOC to meet the Algebra 1 requirement.   
    • If your child has already passed the Algebra 1 EOC, the Geometry Honors EOC is encouraged but is not required for credit transfer. 
    The School District of Palm Beach County also offers EOC testing for private school students in both May and July. For more information on district site testing, click on:  Statewide End-of-Course-Exams-Memo 2023.

  • School-wide Standardized Testing Schedule

    Brittany Theimer
    March 13th - 17th, 2023
    8:30 am to 11:30 am
    The Weiss School will administer the Comprehensive Testing Program (CTP) as our school-wide standardized for grades 1-8. The CTP computer-based administration will replace the traditional TerraNova3 pencil paper testing administered in previous years. The Comprehensive Testing Program (CTP) is a rigorous research-backed assessment covering reading, listening, vocabulary, writing, and mathematics. For more information about the ERB Comprehensive Testing, please visit
    Practice Test Session - Friday, March 10th, 8:30 to 9:15 in place of Friday Morning Show. Please have your student’s laptop, or Ipad fully charged and ready for testing. 
    Prepare For Testing
    A student who is well-rested, eats a nutritious breakfast, and has a positive attitude about testing is best prepared to test! You can help your student do his or her best by considering these tips below: 
    • Make sure that your student is in school and on time on test days. Reschedule doctor/dentist appointments and other out-of-school time on non-testing days.
    • Be sure your student gets a good night's sleep and eats a healthy breakfast before each day of testing.
    • Remind your student that these tests are only one measure of what he or she has learned. Emphasize that you have confidence in his or her ability to do the best job possible.
    • Remind your student to listen to the directions and read each question carefully during testing.
    • Encourage your student to ask the teacher for help if he or she does not understand the directions.
    • Please have your student’s laptop or Ipad fully charged and ready for testing each morning.

    The Weiss School Student Re-Enrollment is Now Open

    Mrs. Brittany Theimer
    February 10th - February 24th
    We are excited to announce that The Weiss School Student Re-Enrollment period for the 2023-2024 school year is now OPEN! The regular Re-Enrollment window for the 2023-2024 school year began yesterday and ends on February 24, 2023.
    For the 2023-2024 school year, parent(s)/guardian(s) of current Weiss School students will again review, complete, and submit student Re-Enrollment Contracts through the myWeiss portal. The first step in the Re-Enrollment process is to log into your myWeiss portal on The Weiss School website using your myWeiss username and password credentials. Once you have logged in, you will see a yellow bar at the top of the page that indicates you have a Contract to Review. Please click on the yellow bar to review and complete the Contract. If you have more than one child re-enrolling at The Weiss School for the 2023-2024 school year, a separate Re-Enrollment Contract will be listed for each child. 
    Weiss School Contracts are integrated with the Blackbaud Tuition Management payment program for a simplified contract and tuition payment process (unless a specific request was made to the Weiss School Admissions Department for a Non-Tuition Management Contract). Blackbaud Tuition Management is fully integrated with myWeiss and unless you have previously not created a Blackbaud Tuition Management account, your myWeiss login credentials will be the only credentials needed to complete the Re-Enrollment Contract. If you have any questions about the Blackbaud Tuition Management process, please email Maribeth Lenz at
    If you are planning to apply for Financial Aid for the 2023-2024 school year, decisions regarding Financial Aid award amounts are expected to be made on a continuous basis throughout the months of April and May 2023. Administration strongly encourages families who are planning to apply for Financial Aid to submit their Re-Enrollment Contracts as soon as possible in order to secure an enrollment seat for your child for the 2023-2024 school year before contracts for new Weiss School students are issued. Re-Enrollment Contracts that are awarded Financial Aid for the 2023-2024 school year will be updated when the award is made. Discounts that have been awarded to your child for Re-Enrollment (i.e. sibling discounts) are reflected in the Re-Enrollment Contract.
    Following the submission of your Re-Enrollment contract(s), The Weiss School Admissions and Business Department staff will review the contract(s) and process all the required Re-Enrollment steps for the 2023-2024 school year. You will be able to monitor the status of your submitted Re-Enrollment contract(s) through the myWeiss portal.
    If you have any questions regarding the Re-Enrollment process or the Re-Enrollment Contract, please contact Mrs. Pam Tripp at or Mrs. Brittany Theimer at Additionally, if you do not remember your username or password for myWeiss, please click the "forgot login/first time login in" button to retrieve your username or to reset your password. If you experience any errors related to logging into myWeiss, please email Mr. Tom Eissey at
    We look forward to our continued partnership in education at The Weiss School for the 2023-2024 school year!
