Middle School Program
New 7th and 8th grade students are taught study skills during the first quarter. Classes meet one period each week and are taught by the Director of the Study Center. This allows for these students to gain the same skills that are taught during the first quarter of the 6th grade Focus class.
In this way, the new middle school students in 7th and 8th grade will be on the same level playing field as the 6th graders by the time they enroll in the upper school at Webb.
At Webb, we believe that each person has unique gifts and capacities and a responsibility to develop them.
Our Middle School Fine Arts Program
With both an international and national reputation, The Webb School's Fine Arts program is admired for the breadth of its course offerings and the outstanding quality of the school's faculty. Middle School students at Webb are introduced to musical, theatrical and visual arts courses offered, including piano, guitar, pottery, speech and choir.
The faculty members, who have degrees from some of America's finest conservatories and universities, give their students both outstanding instruction (in private lessons and classes) and insiders' views of the fine arts as working professionals.
“Grit. Perseverance. Integrity. These are key principles that are instilled in our middle school students, and they will stay with them for the rest of their lives.”
