“Long after the facts and figures faded, what has remain with me from my days at Webb are the memories of my teachers. They gave me the skills and confidence to tackle future challenges I couldn’t even have imagined back in high school. Throughout my college years, graduate studies, and career, I’ve gratefully carried the joy of learning they instilled and cultivated in me.”

"I began attending the Webb School of Knoxville in 6th grade, played plenty of baseball, and graduated seven years later with the Class of 2013. I enrolled at the University of Southern California and majored in International Relations with a minor in Economics."
"Attending Webb School had an enormous impact on my life and the direction that it took. I arrived at Webb as a freshman after the unexpected death of my father the year prior followed by a sudden move to Knoxville, away from the friends and support that I had known up to that point."
Leadership is about making life better for those around you. It is a culture on our campus and the experience our students gain gives them the courage to be leaders outside our campus. Our teachers help students build their capacity for leadership by teaching them about themselves and their strengths and weaknesses in working with others; by giving them opportunities to lead; and by supporting them to reflect on and learn from experience.
Students love to be challenged and they love to solve real world problems. Memorization doesn’t excite them, stimulating learning does. From plugging oil leaks at the bottom of the ocean with remote operated vehicles to improving health care in rural West Virginia, our students are engaged in real world learning.
Incredible growth transpires when students are stretched beyond their comfort zone with great support. This plays out daily in the classroom, on stage and on the athletic fields. It is enhanced by opportunities within our local and global communities. Teachers provide the pathways and students provide the energy. Students grow beyond their wildest expectations and they learn the value of hard work and dedication to a task.
