This school gets better each year. I love the staff and their commitment to teach every student to the best of their abilities. I find that the environment is pleasant and the students having a lot of potential to become brilliant members of society.

My son has been a student at Webb Middle School since 6th grade. Many people has had negative opinion about this school and I always said that it is up to the student to make the school. My son has been a Honor Roll student since elementary school and has continue to be. Mr. Murillo is a great principal and he has done a GREAT job to make sure the school runs the way it should. He is very good with the students and has a good heart towards them. The only problem that I have had is "return calls". When I have left messages for the teachers or/and staff, I never get a call back. I would have to call back SEVERAL times and maybe I get a call back. There were times that I had to go to the school personally so that I may get some kind of answer for my concerns. This is an issue that needs to be taken care of. Other than that my son did great at this school and he will be graduating June, 2012. GREAT JOB, MR. MURILLO

I am a parent of three students, one of which just went to high school graduated from Webb 09', and two in 8th and 7th. If was not for Mr. Murrilo, he has followed my son with his accomplishments and also his non, he been with him with the good and the bad ( and always found good), My children are now motivated and seem more focused on whats real important not just the soliaclizing. Mr. Murillo is diffently move than just someone in the hall or behind a desk/phone, he is a mentor, for which I greatly appreciate. From the neighborhood Webb is much better than it's past reputation, then we grow up with...

Webb Middle chool was a pretty cool school..but the teachers need to worry more about the students' actions and studies more...Sometimes the classes go crazy and teachers dont care much..So they need to fix that..they need more activities for us students like more sports and clubs...but they rest of the school is great!

I have been teaching for over 10 years but it was my 1st year teaching at Webb and I have to say I had an awesome year. The school has a great group of kids. The new principal, Mr. Murillo, really cleaned up the school and established structure. All the kids will tell you how much better the school got once he arrived there as an assistant prinicipal. They all would tell me how bad the school was the past 2 years and the school is soooooo much better, cleaner and safer now. The teachers at the school are very giving and concerned about the students many times donating money from their own pockets allowing students to go on field trips, food for activities and awards for their accomplishments. People who are complaining about the school now are upset at the fact that they have to follow the rules!

Webb middle school is an amazing school with many, many intelligent and well performing teachers. Some may be on their first or second years of teaching but do it very well have very good degrees such as: doctorates and master's. Also some teacher's have Ph.D.'s or are in the process of getting one. I mean they even have a P.E. Coach with a doctorates degree. I am very amazed by how well the school is doing and how much better they have gotten. I am very proud of Webb Middle School!

This is my son's second year at Webb Middle School, and I must say I am very impressed by all of his teachers, they have kept me informed all year long on his progress. They all have my cell number and I have theirs. After my son took the FCAT in sixth grade, and scored high, he was then placed in advance classes, which proved to me that the they are indeed looking at the FCAT scores of students. In the two years my son has been at Webb, I have never had a problem with any of the staff, and they are always happy to help in anyway they can. I will not have a problem sending my 7 year old to Webb. I feel the principal is one of the best in hillsborough county.

Webb is the best school I'v ever been to. They have so many activities and it gives me a challenge unlike other schools I'v been to. And last but not least the principal is so nice but strict which I have great respect for.

Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
