The Webb Schools Reviews

72 reviews
All Categories
One aspect The Webb Schools could improve on is the communication between the administration and the students, specifically the administrators who represent student bodies in the community.
Some administrators are extremely approachable, reliable, and helpful, but other administrators, especially the ones new to position of high authority, seem to have trouble balancing personal emotions and being strict. Many times, this balance is not constant, making the administrator unreliable. The inconsistency in balance of the administrator diminishes students' trust.
Administrators are less approachable when they have not only infants, but also young multiple children that they bring around campus without the presence of another caretaker, making it even harder for students to approach regardless of during academic hours or on the weekends.
Administrators' method of transportation on campus during academic hours also make them less approachable.

The Webb Schools are unique in that you get the benefit of two schools in one plus a world-class fully accredited paleontology museum - all wrapped up in geographic proximity to the Claremont Colleges and neighboring Los Angeles. The culture is one of high academic standards, personal attention, and independent living combined with a fun and casual atmosphere that fosters lifelong friendships and strong bonds with adults. And yes, the ultimate measure of a college preparatory schools is college placement and readiness. This school delivers.
Webb is wonderful school - the academic program is amazing and even though it is small, it provides a broad array of excellent arts and sports programs. The faculty and staff are dedicated, smart, caring and polished. One of the best things about Webb is the shared sense of community that exists there, where everyone - faculty, staff and students - is valued and respected. It says it is committed to the upholding the standards of honor and to do that by modeling honesty, responsibility, respect, fairness and compassion and it delivers on that promise. Quite an extraordinary and refreshing thing in today's cynical, me-first world.
