i went to webster for about 4 days and hated it kids and kids and teachers are rude trust me. my mom pulled me straight out of the school and she got me into classensas parents dont send your students there all that gets done there is the boys and girls making out in the halls,bullying it is under construction so teachers dont even have there own rooms there is no air conditioner therer are roaches and mice.Students dont get to choose theyre own electives my elective were math enhancement and reading for information. dont let your kinds push you to let them go to that school they dont even get lockers. the bathrooms look like there small enough for kindergartners. the boys there like to pressure girls to skip class and leave the school grounds. there is a boy at classen whos cousin goes to webster and he said his cousin left with her friends and the went to ross and the rest of the stores and they even went across the highway to go to the halloween super store. get your kids into good schools like Dove,Classen,Belle isle,harding and any other good school but dont send them to webster it will be a horrible mistake if you do!

I am a student currently attending Webster, and it is almost never a bad school... No fights, no bad teachers, its a fine school. Admitted, Webster used to be a bad school, but that was fixed. No weapons can be smuggled in because there are metal detectors, police, and cameras. Obesity is not common at the school either. Gym teachers put children into shape. There are healthy food, athletes, and sports... Webster is over thirty - five years old and has over fifty sports awards. I reccomend it.

I am a former teacher from Webster. I changed jobs in order to be nearer to my own children's school. In my own 2 year experience at Webster, I found that most of the teachers worked very hard not only to teach, following state mandates, but to discipline and councel their students. Many students going to Webster come from troubled homes. That is not the fault of the teachers or administration. In my experience I found the principals easy to work with, and I saw them many times work with unruly students, and parents, bending over backwards to show as much respect as possible. Most teachers are there, because they want to make a difference in lives. No one else would put up with the stress and hard work. Try being a substitute, it will change your perspective!

I think Webster is a wonderful school! My child was being bullied and as soon as I told the Principal what was happening, it was corrected. I have heard other parents in my neighborhood say that they will not report the bullying because they feared the bullies would get worse. I have gone to the school on several occasions and the office staff and teachers are polite and willing to help my child. They will stay after school if needed to help with missing assignments or low test scores. My chils loves being at Webster. I can not how happy I am that my child is cared for and is getting a good education there.

My child attends Webster and is currently in the 7th grade, unfortunatly we live in the district and cannot afford private school so we have no choice but to send our child here. My child has experienced nothing but problems from this school. He was bullied and physically assaulted several times during the year, and nothing was ever done about it. The staff is very unprofessional and uncaring. The OKC police officer on duty there last year was a joke. I was non stop at that school last year. The school policy states that a child will be arrested if he or she physically assaults another, but clearly they have no desire to enforce school policy, but they have no problem suspendidg a student for flicking a pencil in class. This school is backwards and in my opinion is a dump.

As a parent, I am thrilled with the educational opportunities at Webster. All of the children are treated fairly and with respect. The staff makes a real effort to individualize education for all students. Mr. Brown has done an excellent job turning Webster around and making it a great school for all of our children.

My daughter attended Webster and I would never recommend anyone to that school. I believe that the teachers and principals need a lesson in respect. I have been to that school several times and not one time did I see any respect from any of the staff. Its ok to show these kids a little love...that is all they may be getting this day. I encourage all staff to say a kind word at least one time a day to these students believe me it can make a difference. Never have I heard a kind word come from them...I am glad my daughter no longer attends Webster...I had to move to get her out of there!

I believe that these teachers, need to go through some course, to review what teachers are suppose to do. I believe this is the worse year ever.

I am a former student of Webster and the school has went down alot. The for the most part some of the teachers go out of their way to help the kids but but of course you have teachers that are there just to collect a paycheck as well. As for the principals I personal feel that they are very unprofessional in dealing with the kids and parents. I also feel that they are not concerned with the education of the students. There is not teacher parents commucation at this school. The staff needs to learn that some kids to come to school to learn.

I have to agree with the other two comments. This is not a good school. I pulled my child out of one bad elementary so he could go on to jr high and not fall through the cracks. In the first 4 weeks of school there were at least 4-6 schedule changes because 'they were not prepared for this many entering 6th graders.' This is very sad for a jr high. Not to mention the crime rate. It's one thing to see a police car or two patroling the area, but it's another thing to go pick up your child from school and see 7 police cars and several children standing in front of the cars with handcuffs. I hope that this year, with new leadership, we can clean up the trouble and make this a school that will really teach the children.

I HATE THIS SCHOOLS AND I WOULD ADVISE NO PARENT TO SEND THEIR KIDS HERE IF YOU VALUE HIS/HER EDUCATION AT ALL , I HAD A CHILD ATTEND AND I SPENT MORE TIME THERE THAN I DID AT WORK , MY CHILD WAS SUSPENDED FOR TALKING IN THE LUNCH ROOM , HE FAILED A CLASS BECAUSE A TEACHER DID NOT LIKE ALTHELICS. THIS IS STILL REFLECTING ON HIS GRADE AND TOLD ME IT WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO ABOUT SO NOW MY CHILD IS SUFFERING BECAUSE OF THIS TEACHER , IT IS NOT A SAFE SCHOOL AND SOME OF TEACHERS DON'T CARE AND THEY WILL LET YOU KNOW THEY DON'T, I BELIEVE THAT THE OKC SCHOOL DISTRICTS KNOW OF THESE TREATMENTS OUR CHILDRENS ARE RECIEVEING THIS WHY THEY HAVE LETTING US TRANSFER THEM OUT TO A BETTER SCHOOL. IF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT DON'T CARE THEN WHY SHOULD THE TEACHERS AFTER ALL TEACHERS AND THE OCK DISTRICT ALL WORK TOGETHER , THEY GET PAID AND OUR LOSE ALL FUTURE OF EVERY SUCCEEDING .

This is the worst school you could possible send your child to. The food is terrible. Some of the teachers don't pay any attention to their students. I'm very appaled.
