It is a gift to have Webster as our public school. The campus is spacious & gorgeous. The teachers, staff, and very involved parents are all fabulous. From K-3 we have had nothing but the best experience- even through a principal change of the beloved Phil Cott to the lovely Dr. Susan Samarge-Powell.
Webster Elementary School is a school that students skip into and cheerily skip out to greet their parents. Individual attention is provided to each student for whatever learning and developmental stage is naturally appropriate. Art, music, physical activity, leadership are offered by experienced and professional teachers. School spirit is evident from K-5th. Webster students shine because of amazing parent and grandparent volunteers. Students thrive in reading rich environments from access to a modern library and teachers, like Stacy Harris, that focus upon engaging the student to find the joy in reading hardback and electronic books. Webster Whales arrive and leave school happy!
Being a Webster mom with two kids is like having a full time job without pay. I'm completely exhausted.
Webster is our home away from home...the incredible principal (Phil Cott) teachers and staff who all care and work so hard for our kids. They are supported by an incredible PTA that strives to make up what the CA state budget deficit has cut. Webster has been our village, where our kids have flourished. I couldn't begin to thank them enough!
Webster deals with the entire experience of a school: social, educational, emotional and leadership. The principal is one on one and knows all the students names and every teacher we have had so far cares beyond the beyond about helping their students learn...great school!
My daughter has just completed 1st grade and I absolutely LOVE the school. Imagine learning words as obstreperous and surly as a first grader and loving your school environment. Bother her Kindergarten and First grade teacher are AMAZING!!
My daughter is in Kindergarten at Webster, and even at this young age I see the school making a huge effort in teaching the children more than just finger painting. These kids get to go to Art, Computers, Music....other school just do not do as much. All the staff and faculty is extremely friendly and super helpful. I am glad to be a part of Webster!
I love this school! My girl is in 5th there and loves it! They offer music which is mandatory to get your kid higher educated!

My daughter is in 5th with Ms.Cook and loves her! They are doing greek and Latin words in class! The school takes an overnight trip, but they help with fundraisers! Mr. Cott is a sweet man, and the ladies in the office( Lore & Linda) are very helpfull and nice!!!
Mr. Cott & webster ele is a fantastic school. they are very well organized, pta is great at raising money for extracurriicular activities at first I wasn't so sure because my kindergardner was being bullied, but as soon as I started volunteering and was able to see the problem they just need more supervision and the recieved it.
First-rate school in all respects, particularly the teacher-student ratio. When my daughter was in kindergarten with a class size of twenty she had four teachers. Mr. Kott is the greatest.
Webster is a school where the parents are very involved. The PTA raises tons of money and then uses that money to provide full time aids in each class room, a computer lab and teacher, a art teacher and a variety of other services to the children. Webster does very well with teaching the children about history, art, math, computer and english, but less well at teaching science.
