List of 7 items.

  • National Honor Society

    The National Honor Society (NHS) promotes the values of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These four pillars have been associated with membership in the organization since its inception in 1921. National Honor Society membership is invitation-only with invitations sent to students in their junior and senior year.
  • Peace by Piece

    Under the auspices of the Faith Alliance of Metro Atlanta (FAMA), Peace by Piece at The Weber School aims to promote respect and understanding among Jewish, Christian, and Muslim high school students. Weber Peace by Piece activities include participating in religious ceremonies, attending panel discussions about religious tenets, and learning about the history and culture of each faith.

    Students in grades 10-12 apply for membership in Peace by Piece each spring for the following academic year, and blind applications are evaluated by off-campus readers. Fifteen students from each of the three participating schools are selected each year from the many applicants. 
  • Peer Leadership Program

    Peer Leadership at Weber is an orientation and transition program that welcomes new students and makes them feel comfortable throughout their first year at Weber.

    Our Peer leaders exemplify leadership on and off-campus, acting as mentors to new students. They guide new students through their first weeks as they discover how to be socially and academically successful at Weber.

    Peer Leadership is overseen by The School Counseling Department.
  • Rams For Israel

    Rams For Israel is focused on Israel advocacy and education. Students meet during lunchtime and after school to socialize and learn about Israeli culture, current events, history, and more. Students who choose to take an active part on the board are given many opportunities to strengthen their connection with Israelis through various programs and leadership opportunities.

    Rams For Israel hosts guest speakers throughout the school year and partners with local and national agencies including the Atlanta Israel Coalition and AIPAC.

     “After middle school, joining Rams for Israel gave me the opportunity to learn about Israel from cultural and historical perspectives. Attending AIPAC’s Policy Conference and the Teen Summit with my Rams for Israel and Weber delegation makes me a stronger leader.” Amit Rau, RFI Co-President. 
  • Student Ambassador Program

    Ambassadors serve as role models both inside and outside of The Weber School, lead tours for prospective students and parents, assist with visit days, serve on panels at admissions events, and participate in admissions programs and activities.
  • Student Council

    Weber's Student Council is a group of students elected by their peers who work on behalf of the entire student body. Student Council members initiate and implement projects and activities to encourage student scholarship, promote school pride and values, and work with the school to seek collaborative solutions to challenges that may arise for students throughout the year. Weber's Student Council has been twice recognized as a National Gold Council of Excellence by the National Student Council for its exemplary record of leadership, service, and activities that serve to improve the school and community.
