    I graduated this school in 2012 and i miss it so much! The teachers are really there to support you and i felt totally prepared for middle school! I feel like the rules can be a little too strict but its better safe than sorry. The faculty works hard to ensure our safety and i think Webster has been underrated. Its a clean school and since it is up on the North end there is usually no trouble. I went to Webster from grade 1-5 and had a fantastic time! Parents if you are thinking if enrolling your child at Webster go ahead and do it! I made so many memories and learned so much on the way! ~R.C )

    My son has been going to Webster street since kindergarden and Ive been beyond impressed. The school's special ed team ( along with his doctor) helped us diagnose and make a successful care plan ( IEP) for him to make achievement and success possible. I feel like he goes to a private school in lieu of the caring helpfullness hard work and encouragement from the staff. I wish Webster street went up to the 12th grade. I love all the staff and cant say enough good things.Thank you!!!

    This caring neighborhood school has everything my grandchild needs and wants. The teachers are dedicated to helping each pupil develop their potential and enjoy learning. Students are treated as individuals and cherished. My granddaughter in high school says this was her favorite school. Its always a pleasure to go there for events and see the staff again. Thank you!

    used to be a great school but due to the 'Political Correctness' that the leadership of the school is trying to attain with 'students of different languages' and backgrounds the entire school is holding back the majority.

    I have had kids at Webster since 1996. I have had very good experiences at Webster School and wouldn't hesitate to recommend moving into the neighborhood. Mr. Dallaire is an excellent principal. If you have any kind of concer he is approachable reasonable and always happy to help resolve an issue as well as the teachers. I was involved in the PTO and/or as a room mother. The PTO is strong and active. I would give this school an A+.

    So far I have been very pleased with Webster. I was hesitant to send my daughter to a public school in Manchester I'm glad I decided to give it a try. The teachers are wonderful. I'm confident that my daughter is safe before during and after school. Athletic activities and instrument lessons lack for lower grades but are available for 4th and 5th grades. The PTO is very strong and active. My daughter enjoys going to school everyday and has established quality relationships with both her peers and the school staff.
