I attended Webb for 6 years. It is the ideal situation. It provides a top notch education, and exposes students to a wide range of cultural, geographic, and economic backgrounds. The principals of the honor code stick with me today, and I would encourage any parent or student to go visit.
The school is awesome. Challenging academics, super variety of sports including lacrosse for girls and boys! Great strings classes and performances. Supportive and caring teachers and staff that really take time to know each student. Even the headmaster knows those kids! Beautiful campus - like a small college. Amazing place!
Excellent college prep., we have been extremely pleased. Terrific faculty--very caring. Excellent strings program, art, and wilderness education. Also good athletic programs.
The Webb experience has been an incredible one for our son. He is a rising senior and 4th year boarding student. The academics offered at Webb provide challenge and rigor. He has grown to be a very independent thinker and has developed the ability to organize himself and to manage his time productively. He has also developed a global perspective of the world and his place in it. There is no doubt that he will be well prepared in all ways for college and for all that life has to offer.
Our son has been at Webb school since 7th grade and he is now a senior. He is very prepared for college and has a genuine joy of learning. The teachers are inspiring, encouraging and ethical. The students learn great study skills and work ethic. I know he will have no problem getting in the college of his choice.
This being my fourth year at Webb, I can say it's one of the best decisions I've ever made for myself. I was not forced to go to Webb, I honestly begged. The work amount can be stressful, and at many times, students want to give up. The best part, though, is that they don't. If anything, that's what Webb teaches you. You learn not only academics, but integrity, honesty, and pure friendship. I could not be more thankful to be part of such an amazing community/family.
I am a rising 8th grade boarder at The Webb School, and I absolutely love it. Classes are rigorous and engaging, and students really learn the material instead of just memorizing it. Webb also has a wide variety of clubs and athletics to take part in. Because we are such a small school, we have a very family-like community. The Webb School is great school, and I am grateful for all of the opportunities that have been presented to me while attending.
I am currently a rising senior at The Webb School and this will be my fourth year attending this school. I could not be happier anywhere else because of the fact that Webb is just a perfect place. While the school year can be stressful and keep you swamped with work, the pay off is what really matters. The teachers are always available to help you out after school, on the weekends, before class, in between classes, or if you are procrastinating and turning in an assignments five minutes later. The Webb School's student body and faculty make up a family and we are all very close because the school is so small. IfI love The Webb School and know that I am so blessed to be able to attend.
I am a rising senior at The Webb School and this will be my fourth year living as a boarding student at Webb. It was the best possible thing that could have happened to me. The classes are rigorous but the faculty is always available and willing to help a student that is struggling. Everyone at Webb is willing to take the extra mile to help each other succeed. However, my favorite part of being a member of the Webb community is the sense of family each student feels. As a boarder, I live with one hundred other students who all feel like my siblings and dorm parents who feel like friends and mentors rather than just teachers. I love being a student at Webb and despite the fact that Webb has prepared me for college I still do not want to leave the school that has been my home for four years when it comes time to l graduate next year.
We have been very pleased with The Webb School. We have two children that have/are attending Webb, a rising Jr. and one that graduated this year. This will be our youngest daughters 6th year. I didn't give the school a perfect score because there is no school that could do everything perfectly:)
My son just completed his first year at Webb; he was a 5 day boarding student. He loves Webb so much, that he wishes they had summer school. Webb is very challenging academically which is exactly why my son wanted to attend. The teachers are top notch and the communication the school has with parents is unbelievable. Before we learned about Webb, private school was completely out of the question for our family. First, financially it would be a problem, second, we couldn't imagine sending our 14 year old off to a boarding school, and third, I am a counselor at the public high school he would attend if not going to Webb. He just completed his first year at Webb, and we have no regrets. It was one of the best decisions we have ever made. I wish all students had the opportunity to attend such a high quality school. I just can't say enough good things about it.
I just completed my junior year at Webb and i was and continue to be thrilled with the The Webb School. It offers a good range of classes for you to choose with varying levels of difficulty. But no matter what class you take the teachers are always willing to make sure that you understand the material. They take the time to ensure that we meet all the requuirements to excel and strive for excellence. Also although Webb is not the number one school in sports you will find a hard time finding another team to match the heart and dedication of each competitor at Webb in any sport.
Our daughter just completed the 7th grade at Webb after attending the top rated public school district in Michigan from a national testing perspective. Still The experience at Webb from an academic perspective was head over heels. She began the school year as a 12 year old boarding student. The attention to safety and security Allowed us to sleep comfortably at night knowing that she was in good care and hands. Through email, phone and Ren Webb we were more directly involved in her day to day activities from 800 miles away, than we were when the school was just around the corner. Webb offers an excellent environment for learning, personal growth, and self decipline and development.
I am an alumni of Webb (just graduated this May!) and I could not be happier with the education I received there. My decision to go to Webb is the best decision I ever made. Webb is the most welcoming, stimulating, positive environment to learn in; I grew as a person in my four years there. The best part about Webb is how well it prepares the students for college; not only did I get in to my top choice, but I have also already lived independently, learned excellent study habits, and gotten ahead of the game academically. Webb is a wonderful choice!!
My daughter started attending The Webb School for 7th grade and she graduated this year. We were very pleased with the academic standard, teachers,staff and head of school. She is more than ready for college.We also loved that Webb has an honor code which instills honesty and builds character. The student teacher ratio and the availability of the teachers was reason that our daughter did so well. Webb was an excellent choice. I would suggest if you are looking at private schools in this area be sure to check out Webb!!!!!
Webb is an academically very, very weak school. if you are smart, consider other places.
faculty members are not good at teaching at all. plus, they would hire people who just graduated from colleges and has no previous teaching experience. if you are serious about academics, this isn't the place.
I love Webb because it moved me from a path of shame and failure to a journey full of joy and success.
This was my first year at The Webb School and I am truly impressed by the school. Academically this year I was really challenged! However, I know this will benefit me in my future. At Webb the small community of students and faculty is something I really enjoy. In my 5 other schools I have never had such dedicated faculty as I do here. For me learning at Webb was enjoyable because of the passionate faculty member we have here. The students at Webb are all friendly and caring towards everyone they meet. My transition here was smooth due to how helpful everyone was towards me. In this short period of time I have become extremely close to all my classmates. I m really excited to start my senior year at Webb!
Excellent school. My daughter was finally challenged & loves the small class size. We wlll be sending one son in the fall, and another son in two years when he reaches sixth grade. The teachers are caring both in and out of the class. The student body is kind and respectful. Great headmaster.
