    Webb has been a wonderful choice for our family! The Faculty and Staff truly care for my son. They want the best for him in all areas of his life! The Admissions department are so friendly and professional! They were super helpful and VERY knowledgeable of the school and its departments. The Academics are challenging but manageable. The school provides study centers, extra help and advisors. They give every possible opportunity for success academically in the classroom. The Athletics department is second to none. The coaches are not only present but are a very active part of the students' lives. They are positive, hard working and examples to the athletes. They arrive early and most days leave late. Many faculty and staff live on campus are readily available noon and night. My son loves the food and atmosphere created by Webb. Chapels are a nice and refreshing part of the day to regroup and connect with the student body. We love Webb!

    ACADEMICS
    Our history, math, and art classes are well-organized and inspiring, but the science department is really falling apart. The school offers a lot of AP classes, and students generally get good scores, especially in history, math and English.
    TEACHERS
    It depends, some teachers are caring and knowledgable, while others are not actually serious about their jobs. The best teachers always leave after they teach for a short period.
    CLUBS & ACTIVITIES & SPORTS
    The school doesn't provide enough time for clubs, so a lot of them are not functioning well. Afternoon activities are generally nice. Sport is surprisingly good for such a small private school.
    ADMINISTRATION
    HORRIBLE! A lot of excessive rules that some teachers don't even follow.
    DORM LIFE
    Some of the dorm parents are extremely nice, but others lack a sense of rationality. Teachers have a higher standard for students than for themselves. Without any trust, and the whole dorm lives under an atmosphere of suspicion.
    Three of my daughters attended Webb. It was a wonderful experience for them. They were exceedingly well prepared for their colleges and graduate schools, were very tell taught, and made lasting friendships with fellow students and teachers. I most highly recommend Webb!
