Middle School Program
Webb is a supportive community where students are challenged to succeed. Regardless of their daily schedule, faculty members have a special bond with the students in their dorm. The middle school curriculum at Webb is distinguished by personalized education, with a 7:1 student to teacher ratio. Small class sizes allow teachers to meet each student’s academic needs and offer support to foster success.
The Middle School offers a rigorous academic program that prepares your child for upper school success. Students complete required courses in English and humanities, mathematics, history and world geography, science, world languages, art and music. The WILD (wilderness instruction and leadership development) course teaches outdoor skills. The after lunch enrichment program gives students the opportunity to enroll in a variety of courses that allow them to pursue special interests and develop their talents. At Webb, we believe that each person has unique gifts and capacities and a responsibility to develop them.
