    I still have my son in webster. This is his third year in the school since 2006. He is now in the second grade and the school and children have improved alot. Thanks to our dedicated teachers and principal who strive for nothing more but to help give our children the very best education. My son loves school .I have never once had any problems with the school children.They meet my needs and keep me informed about my sons progress. My son is a beginner reader and loves to read me stories .He also enjoys doing his homework together with me and talking about his day. I once again couldn't be happier with the choice I've made for my son and the help I have from webster to help me give my son the best. mrs.manni

    I have had kids in this school since 2000. I'm not at all impressed with the school this year. I've seen alot more fights this year than last year. There are however some really great teachers there. I've had some good teachers for my children . The science teachers are fantastic ..Kudos to Mr. Foster and former teacher Mr. Howell. I just wish the get the kids under control.

    Webster School has excellent teachers who must strive very hard to teach the children that want to learn!This school has a severe safety and discipline problem!My suggestion take out the discipline problems and let the good kids get an education that they deserve and want!
