We switched to Webb for middle school, after attending one of the better Knox County elementary schools. Both were positive experiences for us. However, Webb offers something that goes well beyond the typical school- it is an experience. We have been impressed with how enagaged the teachers and administrators are and how they thoroughly understand tweens. They take a genuine interest in the kids in academics, as well as their communication and service skills and extra activities.The lack of emphasis on weekly TCAP practice tests and the fact that they do not give grades in extra-curricular classes, allows the kids to truly focus on what is important. The other thing you really notice is that the kids are treated with complete respect- no one is yelling in the hallways, no one is managing the lunchroom. Class sizes are small (between 11-19) except for gym and this enables plenty of time for kids to ask questions and present their ideas in class. The teachers have a planning period where they literally all get together to discuss workload, children that may need special help, etc. Pacing of classes is aggressive but not too much to handle. We love everything except the cost.

My Grandson started Webb last yr as a kindergartener . He is now in 1st grade and we couldn't be happier with his Teachers and Angie Crabtree! She runs this School with Top-Notch precision. I feel so blessed to have such great support for our 1st grader, and look forward to seeing what the remaing yrs hold thru High School. For the previous responders that spoke of " money" being very important at Webb, We are an average family and feel NO pressure to " keep up with the Jones". Webb Lower School Faculty and Staff are the Bomb!!

Moved here from a northern state 2 years ago.Told we would get a top notch education at Webb.What a joke.I am thankful every day that we couldn't get our other child in because it was full.The middle school curriculum is so out dated and their 'technology' with the iPads is basically to use it as a word processor and presentation application.My other child is in public school 1 grade behind and is being challenged every day to capacity as well as learning 5 times as much material.Biggest waste of money ever. 'Feel good' and status school for people with too much money.Nelson, the Middle School head will tell you whatever you want to hear until your money is in.After that, it's an aloof, condescending attitude towards parents and students alike.A better use of the $12million they are putting towards an athletic facility would be to update their curriculum and hire some good teachers.Convinced most of the Middle School teachers are people that couldn't make it in public schools.There is no syllabus, no agenda, no accountability.2 of the math teachers aren't even able to grade papers correctly.The so-called learning specialist is nothing more than a glorified study hall teacher.

This is our second year in Knoxville and at Webb. My daughter is a 7th grader at Webb Middle School. She has had an amazing experience at the school. The teachers are excellent and the academics are challenging. This is the best education in Knoxville, no other private school can compare in academics in this area. It is expensive, but well worth it.

The Lower School is of very POOR quality. The main problem, the Lower School lacks leadership from the Lower School Director. The Lower School is a complete scam. It's just a holding place for the high school, which anyone can get into as long as they can pay the tuition. Knowing everything I know now, I wouldn't send my dog there....it is that bad. FIY: Do your research and talk to people in the community before you make the mistake we did.

I am a sophomore in high school and I have been attending Webb since I was 5 years old. Webb has taught me so many things that I will take with me when I leave for college in two years. This school has shown me the light of the stage and music and the arts. Also currently I am taking two honors classes and I hope to take at least one AP class as a junior. The high school also encourages community service opportunities which lead to an open heart and smiles upon faces. The school enforces a no bullying tolerance so your child will be safe with the supervision of teachers and other students. Academically, I have gotten on all of my report cards As and Bs in every subject so if your child is willing to work hard and she/he is determined to get good grades then this school is great for him/her.

Academically ok. If you are moving into the area a tough school socially. Kids have been there since K-1 and friendships are established so that is is difficult for your child to make friends. In private school teachers do not have to be accredited to teach that subject.

Webb Lower School is providing an amazing education for my first grader. The teachers give individual care to each student and create a learning environment that is both challenging and nurturing. The lower school director, Angie Crabtree, treats every student, parent and faculty member with respect, and this respect is duplicated by every member of the community each day. The faculty have helped my daughter to develop into a curious learner who embraces each day. As a parent, I feel that we are part of a community that encourages and supports learning, creativity and the uniqueness of each student.

My husband and I considered all the private schools in Knoxville before we decided to send our daughter to Webb for kindergarten. While there are many very good choices in Knoxville, Webb offered the most in our opinion. Angie Crabtree, is a dedicated force within the lower school and her creativity and energy mold both the faculty and students. There is a very low turnover of faculty and a long waiting list for students, which speaks volumes about Webb's superior environment. What makes Webb such a unique school is a combination of factors: high parental involvement, the quality of the faculty, the diverse courses-sports-teams-activities and clubs offered, the quality of students attending and the facilities (campus) that support and inspire the whole. The only drawback would be the high tuition; which when you consider the above is well worth the cost.

Webb Lower School has a wonderful environment. The teachers are spectacular. They make learning interesting and fun. However, we did choose not to attend this year because of conflicts with the lower school principal. She is probably a very nice person but always seemed fake and unintersted. It is a shame because it is such a nice school. We will probably apply again in middle school.

Webb Lower School is truly a superb learning environment for early childhood learners. As a former teacher, I can tell you that the emphasis on hands-on, developmental learning will meet your child's learning needs in a much more complete way which will lead to further success in school and in life. The director, Angie Crabtree is amazing in so many ways, as are the teachers. The facility, 'specials' (art, music, P.E., computer, Spanish, chess, and other clubs) learning philosophy, and entire school climate all make Webb Lower School head and shoulders above area public schools. Parents are involved in every area, and are kept abreast of every possible detail through the school website. It is expensive, but worth every penny. During the application/information process, I was doubtful that it could be as fantastic as it was presented, but we have not been disappointed in any way.

I went to Webb several years ago. The education is outstanding and the school offers numerous AP and honors classes. The classes are small and students get more personal attention from teachers than most other schools. The only complaint I had about the school when I went there was a bullying problem. At the time, it was a BIG problem and no one at the school seemed serious about addressing the issue. If they have adopted the Zero-Tolerance Bullying Policy (and is serious about it) some schools in the area have adopted, then I would highly recommend sending your children here.

I attend Webb School of Knoxville, and it is a great school to get your education from. Even I am amazed by how much I have learned since I joined as a sixth grader. I am now in eigth grade, and am hoping to graduate from Webb in high school. The teachers here are always waiting to help you, and want to make sure you understand the material. The teachers also help you make the switch from middle school to high school by letting you know what the honors classes are like, and advising you on which ones you should choose by looking at your strengths and weaknesses. Webb makes sure you are involved in sports by not letting you graduate without a certain amount of credits. You must also have 100 service hours over a 4-year period. If you can afford the tuition, I would advise you to consider attending Webb.

Individualized education K through 12. Small classes and wide range of AP and Honors classes for high school. Excellent college preparation and college counseling, including 2 fulltime counselors who ensure that each student has a complete application packet sent on time to every school. Expensive but worth it if you want your child to set high goals, be expected to meet high expectations, and move on to a college that fits his or her talents, strengths, and budget.
