Nothing short of wonderful! Very pleased! There 2 years with currently 6, 8 and 11 year olds. Nothing but good to say about the wonderful teachers between PK4 and 5th grade. I wish they had a language, but in the grand scheme of things, that is minimal.

Noah Webster Microsociety Magnet School is an excellent school. My kids ages 12 and 4 have excelled since enrolled. This is the second year for my youngest. She started in PK3 and this year is in PK4. She has matured and grown tremendously since she attends the school. My oldest started this year after a bad experience in a different magnet school. Noah Webster is the best thing that have have happened to us as a family. We live in Plainville and commute everyday to give them the opportunity to attend the TOP school in Hartford. H switched schools and was failing due to not completing homework. The teachers communicated inmediately and we were able to work as a team to get him focused in school work. After a few months his grade improved to the point he is now is in the Honor Roll and was promoted to the honors class. My family LOVES Noah Webster!

Noah Webster has excellent teachers, strong academics, and a principal who deals with issues effectively and humanely, without violating privacy. Mrs. Cole rocks!

Noah Webster has wonderful teachers! My children love coming to school here, and receive great special education assistance. On the other hand the Administrative aspect of this school is lacking. On numerous occasions I have witnessed and had my own child's safety questioned. Please remember that this school is located in Hartford, and while most of the students are respectable, not all are. The Principle, Mrs. Cole is more concerned with the public image of the school to notice the chaos that surrounds the upper classmen. I think that school would be Wonderful all around if there was an Administrative change. I Too, question whether my children will still be attending this school in the fall.

The teachers in this school are wonderful, but because of the administration, morale is terrible among teachers and parents. There is absolutely no line of communication from the administration to parents. Teacher positions are also being cut...particularly in the middle school where there are troublesome behavioral problems. It is unfortunate that this is happening to such a wonderful school with such dedicated teachers.

The school is excellent and the teachers work very hard to make the students excel. I am very satisfied as a parent.

Posted March 11, 2010

I believe the teachers in this school are awesome ,that being said the administration leaves much to be desired.As a parent of children that will soon will be withdrawn from this school it saddens me that these teachers have to work under rules that prevent them from giving the kids the education and attention they deserve.I hope the school gets rid of the principal,dean of students,and others who follow her and maybe then the school can be the place it can be.For now i would not recommend any parent to send their child to such a sad excuse of a school

This school is fantastic! They have the best teachers and all the students live it. My daughter has been going there since pre-school and she has not once complained about it.She loves all her teachers. She is now a 7th grader there and still loves it. If you live in CT near Hartford and your looking for a school for your child, Noah Webster is the way to go!

I believe the teachers are well knowledgeable and really take time out to help each child achieve. My kindergarter is reading very fluently and she continues to amaze me everyday with the new experiencees she has each day at school. So I believe Noah Webster is a very good school.

I love Noah Webster School. As a parent from the suburbs who drives her children in every day, every second of the commute is worth it for the quality education they receive. My kindergartner is reading fluently. My second grader has become a model student after a rocky start in his elementary education at another school. I find the staff very responsive and extremely sensitive to the needs of my children. I can not begin to express in 150 words all the fantastic experiences I have had at Noah Webster.

Posted January 22, 2007

This school is filled with amazing teachers. But as a involved parent there, I was able to see they lacked the support from their principal. I withdrew my children and would not recommend this school, as it is unsafe. Free preschool is tempting but not in those conditions. They need a real leader to support and follow through with the needs of the children and staff.

This school is going downhill since the old principal, Mr. Burr, left. This school also doesn't envolve the 7th and 8th grade in with what the rest of the school is doing. They leave them out of concerts, and other activities.

Noah Webster provides quality eduacation. It also beats paying the high price of private schooling and the kids recieve the same great results.I love going to pick up my son and seeing all the children in their uniforms. I wish to have my child continue his eduacation until it's time to graduate to high school!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted July 25, 2005

In my opinion I think that Noah Webster is a great school. Their curriculum is excellent and they are extremely focused on the advancement of the students. In addition Mr Burr who is the principal of the school is very open to parrents and is always willing to help out in any way he can.
