Welcome to Webb’s Lower School Program where learning takes place in an atmosphere that is structured, engaging, and nurturing.
We seek to inspire active learners who think critically and take intellectual risks. Our program emphasizes the acquisition of skills and attitudes that will allow our students to express ideas effectively and to solve problems both independently and in groups. Additionally, we are interested in creating an ambiance in which learning is fun and where students begin to see learning as an inherently rewarding lifelong process.
We are also deeply committed to supporting the development of our young children as caring, good human beings as well as scholars. We believe that children work harder, achieve more, and treat each other with a higher level of dignity when they and their efforts are visibly and consistently encouraged and valued. To that end, we provide meaningful lessons, challenging standards, and a nurturing community that are designed to promote the best in our children.
In the Lower School, there is particular emphasis on the acquisition of language skills and problem-solving skills that transcend any specific discipline. There is also time to explore the arts, science, and technology as well as the traditional core of reading, writing, and mathematics. In all disciplines, we emphasize collaboration and cooperation in study and an integrated, hands-on, project-based orientation to learning.
I hope that you will enjoy this website introduction to Webb’s Lower School and make the time to visit the campus as you continue to learn about our Lower School.
