Noah Webster has been the best school my 4 kids have been to. 2 of them were failing and 1 of them needed the extra help and they are all succeeding now since entering in October 2009.
All three of my children attended. Very satisfied with their education and supportive loving environment!
I am very satisfied with my kids' education at this school. My kids have been on honor roll each semester!! Teachers are great!! Staff are great!! I honestly don't have one complaint about this school........ And I would highly recommend it!!
This school is not only concerned with teaching a fine curriculum but also the caring ways of life.
Noah Webster is awesom! I have sent three of my kids there, and plan to send the rest. My kids have thrived and all become better and more responsable people.
It has helped our daughter excel in her learning. I love the way Noah Webster cares about each child and their individual learning needs.
I love this school! I love the entire staff from the custodians, crossing guards to the principal. Everyone seems to pitch in to get the job done. My kids are getting a great education that is far advanced compared to some of friend;s children. They are very focused on respect and character building as well as academia. I feel blessed to have found this school.
It takes a tight community to raise good children with values, respect,confidence and 100% participation. Noah Webster is the heart of our community! This school is the best school and deserves the recognition!
I love the dedication and positive attitude that just emanates from all the teachers and staff at this school. I've never felt so appreciative for these people helping guide my child through life.
Great teachers and Staff. I have a 5th grader at this school and she is working way above grade level. My 7th grader has moved on to junior high and is in honors classes due to the education she has received at Noah Webster. The teachers are awesome and put alot of time and attention into their students. There are alot of activities and fundraisers that the kids love. My daughter has medical problems and they have gone above and beyond to help her. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a top knotch education for their children.
My Son has been attending Noah webster since Kindergarden. He is in the second grade now and we are about to pull him out. We have had conssitent problems with his teacher this year not communicating information to us. For example he is left of of class event like valentines day and birthdayy parties. When we ask why the teacher did not send anyhting home she always says she did. His grades began to slip and he fell from an A student to B student and falling very low in two areas, Math and Grammer. We ask the teacher to give us specific examples and she never did. We asked about tutoring and she said there was none available, but sent us private tutor that also works fo rthe school that was going to charge us thousands. It turns out there was tutoring available the entire time. Many more strange issues.
My daughter has been going to Noah Webster since Pre-K and I have nothing bad to say about this school! It has awesome teaching staff and awesome facilities! Its a very close knit kind of school and I def would recommend them to everyone!
My child is in first grade at NWBS. New this year. My child attended our neighborhood school at Higley last year and I was so very concerned about safety and lack of discipline and overall competence and organization of the school. I found NWBS and decided to try. Yes, it IS different from public school. Is that not why we seek out alternative schools in the first place? I was very surprised at the lack of parent involvement too. I contacted the teacher, let her know I would like to volunteer in the classroom and go in once a week. They welcome me. There is much to be said for the structure and organization NWBS. I actually like that it is run more like a business. My child is in a safe, competent school. She is learning so much and is extremely happy and so am I.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! The Fright Fest was an AMAZING event! Noah Webster, you all did a fantastic job! Keep up the good work!
My son is in Kindergarten this year, and absolutely loves it! I love the fact that he is so happy and is learning SO much! He is reading, writing, spelling and doing math all at a first grade level and is thriving better than I ever could have imagined! He came home the other day and told me that he told his teacher that he loved her! That speaks volumes about how wonderful this school is! I look forward to watching my son learn and evolve even more throughout his school years at Noah Webster. I researched schools for the last 2 years, and I am so happy with my decision to put him in this school. I KNOW he is challenged and learning at a level that he would not be getting at our neighborhood public school, and I'm so grateful to have Noah Webster as an option!
Going to Noah Webster was my biggest mistake! Think twice before taking your child here. My child went to Noah Webster for the last 3 years. Starting at kindergarten. I thought NWBS was the best school. He was on the honor roll. His strongest subjects were math (always got A s), science and social studies! I was always an advocate for their school. Till we ended moving over the summer. My son is now enrolled into a Gilbert District public school. He is behind in his studies. And he has been appointed a reading specialist, and math specialist!! His new school has requested to NWBS, that my son's previous transcripts be faxed to them. NWBS has neglected to provide the information needed for my child s education. I am very disappointed in Noah Webster Basic School. How can a child go from the honor roll student, to needing a reading and math specialist!!?? This has damaged his self-esteem!
I have 3 children at NWBS and after moving this year had to move my children into Kyrene School district. I wasn't too concerned as all i heard was Kyrene was one of the best in AZ. My child in kindergarten was bored, and my 2nd grader told me his new school was 'easy'. I decided to take them back to NWBS. Yes, parking and traffic are a nightmare but no school has good pick up options. (i have seen the others school parent pick up lines!) I LOVE the fact that they don't have a PTO. You can volunteer for any field trip, school event or party. I also LOVE the fact that it is a closed campus. As a parent I am pretty sure that even some creepy people have kids or could find a way to be on school grounds if it were not so well controlled.
Academically this school is excellent! The high turnover of teachers/staff is ridiculous. The director seems to get rid of people who are good at what they do and think outside the box. The front office staff is useless. They don't return calls, they are rude, and they have no clue what they are doing. The director cares more about the business side of the school than the kids. I would not recommend this school and my kids will not be returning.
