We love L.C. Webster! The teachers are very invested in the students, they truly care about this little school. There has been very little turnover of teachers, most teachers have their masters degree. I think the teachers really think outside the box, and see something special in each child. The staff at Webster operate as a cohesive team and I appreciate how hard they work. Not only will you find the students being taught reading, writing, math, music, etc, but they also are learning how to care about each other, and how to respect each other. While this little school is not fancy, it is very special, I always tell people it is a diamond in the rough.
