    I am an 8th grader at webster middle school and i love it. (almost) all the teachers are amazing and I've learned so much that i have gone up a year ahead in math while I have been here. We have so many clubs to join and it is so fun. I really recommend Webster to anyone looking for a middle school.

    My daughter is a 6th grade student at Webster Middle. She has wonderful teachers who are inspiring her to learn. The music program is excellent. Administration is always accessible and willing to work with parents to create a positive learning environment.

    We had many choices for a middle school and I'm glad we chose Webster. It's a pretty well-maintained safe campus and I always felt welcome there when I showed up to help out. Class sizes are much smaller than at other middle schools and my kids had close relationships with several outstanding teachers. My two graduated in 2012 but we still visit and still interact with some of the faculty. We miss Webster!

    My boys graduated from Webster June 2012. It was an amazing journey. I love the education they received both academically and socially. The teachers and administration were wonderful. Webster has prepared my kids for high school. Go and step foot on the beautiful campus. Having a uniform was definitely a huge plus too!

    My son is going to 6th grade at this school in the fall. I would love to hear more reviews from both parents and students.

    I am a 7th grade student at Daniel Webster Middle School. The teachers at Webster are amazing they truly care about you. Although some kids may complain about this school I know that Daniel Webster is a fun place to be. Once you go into Webster you can feel the joy! I look forward to coming everyday and learning something new. A lot of parents may worry about their children being in a bad school Webster is completely the opposite of that and has risen up over the last few years. The students here are great and the faculty is fun and caring. You do not have to worry about keeping your children safe because here at Webster to teachers students come first. Webster is dedicated to excellence in all that we do! Go Webster!

    My son is in the 6th grade and loves this school! The teachers really seem to care and this is what impresses both me and my husband the most. The campus is very attractive and Webster's website is very helpful. You can find anything you need to know about the school. I understand that they really upgraded the website and it shows. We had 3 different schools to choose from and are very happy that we chose Webster.

    A good school with good leadership and great teachers. There are many options with schools I am happy that my kids go to Webster. My wife loves the uniforms. The principal is accessible. The teachers are creative and challenging! The classroom sizes are small which allows for better learning. Teachers and staff know and care about the students. This is a wonderful community school.

    This is my son's second year at Daniel Webster Middle school and we chose this school over a Culver City school. I know we made the right choice. I love the teachers VP's and principal the are amazing!! I feel many people overlook this school because of the bad reputation it had. Not now this is a GREAT school that needs parents to give it a chance. My son's classes have no more than 25 students in each and the current student population is less that 700. Need I say more?

    Webster aint half bad. I guess it's good school but it's SOOOOO boring. i know your supposed to go to school to learn and everything but sometmes we just need a lil slack. They got us locked up in the lunch area or the PE field with nothin' to do. And some of the kids there are kinda wierd but i've made a lot of good friends too. I like the teachers though which isn't something you normally here from a student but most of them are real cool and they actually show that they care about you. I'd recommend it most peoples.

    The principal Kendra Wallace really cares about the students and the issues that matter most to them and their education. She has hired a dynamic and enthusiastic faculty that inspire the kids as well as educating them.

    im a sixth grader at webster. many peple say its a bad school but i dont see anything bad. there are a couple of fights and people call each other names but which public school doesnt. many of the students are really smart. just today we had the honnor roll assembly and we had over 300 students get called up there. that is mostly because of the great support of all our teachers. my teachers ar ms. strong and mr. collins which teach science history math and english and all i can say is that they have helped me a lot. there are also a lot of teacher that teach electives. like right now i have mr.barret (music teacher) the class im in right now is beging strings and ive been playing since the 3rd grade but the kids are so much better than me already. well thats all.

    wow what can i say about this school....well first of all for everyone who says this is a bad school they're wrong. This is a really nice school... it has taught me so much.... i am in the SAS program and the teachers are amazing! They make class so much fun.... last year i was in 6th grade and i had the best teachers. I had Ms. Strong Ms. choi Mr. Berrett and Mr. Lewis. There is no one like them although Mr. Lewis doesn't teach there it is still good; he was a great teacher and taught us so many things. As for my other teachers they were great too. Ms. Strong had a special way of teaching she made it fun. This school has taught me so much this is where i met some of the best people and also Ms. Wallace is a great principal!
