    I was in the last graduating sixth grade class of Webster and i have to say that it's everything i could every ask for. I have established a very good friendship with all of the teachers of diferents grades of this school even if i never had them but they were like my second family from home. With the foundation of my education whilst entering middles chool i was able to take what I learned in the wonderful learning enviornment and applied them to my middle school experiences. When graduating from the middle school Webster had place me in I was honored with becoming validictorian and was awarded with the most acedemic awards in the entire graduating class and many other clases of previous years. I have become very successfull and currently attend Classical high schol where im starting freshman year already ahead of average students. This school is still my second family today and i visit since I live near by. I give my greatest regards to the wonderful principal Alicia Jones for she may be a true friend of the alredy elite group that I obtain.

    I have not been impressed with this school. The teachers are not helpful and the principal is way to scattered to care. I think there is not a whole lot of learing going on here. I have a child with an IEP and it took me to remind THEM when it needed to be reviewed...disappointment! This is to bad cause it WAS a great school...
