Webb Elementary is a hidden gem! The staff at Webb is caring and supportive. My son loves going to school there and has had fantastic teachers each and every year. We love that the principal is all about the kids and always takes time to talk with us. When you go into the office, the ladies there are so welcoming and warm. We love Webb Elementary!

I have been an involved parent at Webb Elementary for 4 years, and thoroughly enjoy my children attending this school. Principal Kyle Luthi is engaging and truly all about the kids. The teachers are there because they want to be. This is a Title I school, and yet I guarantee that the kids will never be in want or need of anything. Visiting parents are treated like rockstars -- the kids LOVE parental involvement! Come out and see for yourself!

Webb is a great school. The teachers and administrators are warm and caring. My children wake up and want to go to school every day. As a parent, I always feel welcome every time I go. The ladies in the front office are so helpful and polite. If your child attends Webb, you are very blessed.

This school has great teachers and Staff. The principals are both excellent leaders, and truly care for the needs of the students. I really think that it is the best kept secret in McKinney.

My nephews attended Finch at the beginning of their elementary career, it was the worst experience a child had to go through. For two years now they have been at Webb and they now enjoy going to school and are actually learning. They have for the most part supportive teachers who are there for the students!

My sons have gone to Webb since Kindergarten. The school is warm and friendly and the teachers are attentive and caring. The school has a diverse population and is highly respected in the community.

Great school with great diversity. Teachers are attentive and concerned for your children's progress and well beings. The teacher/student ratio is excellent ( 20 per two teachers in my daughter's classese). This school is a hidden jewel, situated around income challenged housing, however, the teaching quality is high in value. The gifted and talented program is top notched. We are in other state now and my daughter to this day still remembers the good times she had there.
