School Profile

Faced with the certainty of a rapidly changing world, Webb recognizes its responsibility as a college preparatory school to provide an intellectual, moral, physical, and social framework that will serve students both in college and in the years that follow. The faculty, administration, and board of trustees agree that a strong liberal arts education best prepares students to respond constructively and imaginatively to the challenge of change. Students are, therefore, encouraged in all courses to think and communicate critically, as well as creatively. Webb offers College Preparatory and College Preparatory-Honors courses in most disciplines. This "two-track" system allows students to take accelerated courses in their areas of particular academic strength.

In academic and co-curricular areas, Webb strives to meet individual needs. A dedicated faculty and a low ratio of students to teachers ensure that each student receives thorough instruction. Although Webb seeks out students of varying backgrounds, a sense of community is encouraged both during and after the academic day. Webb students are taught to live harmoniously in a student body that reflects global diversity in socioeconomic status, race, and religion.

Faculty

Webb's faculty members are outstanding, committed educators, who come from a wide range of colleges and universities; most of whom possess advanced degrees. The average faculty member has 16 years experience in the profession and 9 years at Webb. Throughout the year, Webb encourages the faculty's continuing education by funding graduate courses, workshops, conferences, and seminars.

Webb's average class size is 10, but some classes are as small as 5 students. In that type of environment it is very easy to see that topics are being grasped and concepts mastered.
