Twenty-one Webb seniors were recently inducted into the Mu Alpha Theta Honor Society, the national high school and two-year college mathematics honor society. Webb’s Upper School math department recognized the newest inductees during a recent Upper School Chapel.
Webb School Academics
We teach students, not a curriculum.
We spark curiosity and our students ask questions. We collaborate on real issues and our students see the world from a new perspective. We view learning as an opportunity and our students embrace a lifetime of discovery.
Schools are about students and our students are at the center of every decision we make. From our Junior Spartans to our senior leaders, we design learning opportunities that engage, motivate, and inspire. In turn, our students stretch and grow beyond their wildest imaginations.
Webb’s developmentally responsive curriculum provides dynamic learning activities that allow students to grow in confidence and excel. A balance of content mastery and skill development ensures that students are ready for their next exciting learning opportunity.
This year, the College Board announced that 103 Webb School students, both current and graduates from the Class of 2019, earned AP Scholar Awards with eight Spartan students achieving national ranking. The average score of Webb’s award winners was an exemplary 3.68 on a 5-point scale. In May 2019, 190 Webb Upper School students sat for 503 AP exams. Eighty-eight percent of those students achieved a score of 3 or higher, which included 76 scores of 5 and 153 scores of 4.
Webb School’s French students carried on their proud tradition of earning top-level scores in the annual National French Exams with the reporting of this year’s results.
This year’s graduates had much to be proud of with 100 percent college placement and 436 offers of admission to 159 different colleges and universities.
