So excited! My child will be going to Webber next year!!! Best middle school in Ft. Collins. Even if we have to drive him, it is worth it.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 7, 2014

I couldn't disagree with the February 5 statement more. Both of my children attended Webber and I found it to be the most inclusive and accepting school in the city. The teachers are of the highest caliber, and all staff are friendly, helpful and compassionate. It is unfortunate that someone had a negative experience with bullying and I sincerely hope that situation gets rectified soon. No school in American can guarantee a seemless childhood for students and I hope the parents are sharing the responsibility of teaching their child how to deal with this situation. Knowing Webber the way I do, I'm sure the administration will get to the bottom of the bullying and all parties involved will come to a compassionate and caring conclusion. Webber rocks in my opinion and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone!

My son has bin going to Webber for almost two years and has bin bullied the hole time. We are taking our son out of this school because the staff won't do anything about it. We are very disappointed in the Weber and don't think you should enroll your kid their!

My son has attended webber for almost 2 years. He is constantly bullied and the staff does nothing about it. I would absolutely never send my kid to this school. If your child is a bully they will fit in great! I'm pulling my son out of Webber and my other child will not attend there either. If I could give 0 stars on this school I would, its that terrible.

We have two kids who attend Webber and are extremely pleased with it. The teachers are superb, enthusiastic and dedicated to a high degree. The principal is wonderful, friendly to parents and students, involved, and accessible. Counselors are concerned, caring and attentive. My boys' teachers have interested them in every subject and both kids excel academically.

Webber is a great school for a junior high student to be at. It has many great teachers (especially the music department), and the administration is good at weeding out the bad teachers that occasionally get hired. However, be warned: as a junior high the teacher turnover rate is rather high, with many of the best teachers moving on to high school and higher education. Athletics here are superior to all the junior highs in the district. Music department can only be rivaled by Lesher. CSAP scores are consistently top ranked. The only big problem here that I can think of is the cliquishness: Due to many high income families attending, I have consistently heard Webber called

This is an okay school there is a different varity of races and types of people and different learning types. The standards are set pretty high for a public school but most of the people are able to learn very easly.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
