My daughter has grown so much here. The teachers go above and beyond to offer her enrichment and opportunities in areas she is interested. She is very bright and needs to stay challenged. We love the MicroSociety theme as she has enjoyed creating her own "ventures" which are like class businesses. The diversity is a wonderful bonus as she exposed to all walks of life in an academic setting.
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 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.
