As an institution with world-class aspirations, we continuously reimagine how we can support our students in going farther and going further. Building on an exceptional synergy of over 60 years of educating students in Knoxville, TN, our educators look forward, not back.

Message from the President

We’re so glad you’ve taken the opportunity to explore our website where you will get a glimpse into what makes Webb School of Knoxville so wonderfully extraordinary.

At Webb, our students are inspired to learn! You see it in the enthusiastic faces of our Pre-K Junior Spartans and the other Lower School children as they race to their classrooms each morning, and in the way Middle and Upper School students approach their studies with a genuine desire to know more.

Webb School of Knoxville is a unique place. The honor, respect, and compassion instilled in each student, combined with an exceptional education, fully prepare them for success throughout their lives. Our graduates are ready to be leaders of character and to head out into the world with the confidence to thrive and the conviction to make a difference.

To truly experience Webb, I invite you to come for a visit, so we can welcome you in person. I am confident that the moment you step foot on campus, you will get that feeling . . . a feeling that goes beyond the beautiful grounds and academic buildings, a feeling that is deeper than the creative spirit you’ll see in our arts facilities and far beyond the competitive edge you’ll recognize as you walk on our playing fields. It’s a feeling that comes from the warmth and excitement you encounter from Webb students, parents, and teachers. It is that sense of community that makes us all feel a part of the Webb School family.

Come explore our campus. Discover what makes the Webb School of Knoxville experience extraordinary.
