Learner centered. Forward thinking. Reimagining extraordinary!

Webb School of Knoxville founder, Robert Webb, instilled in our community a desire to constantly strive to prepare our students in extraordinary ways for the world they will eventually lead. We refuse to rest on our laurels; rather, we continue to move forward in researching, evaluating, and designing current and future programs in our effort to reimagine extraordinary in how we teach and how children learn. We are reimagining not just our educational landscape by providing innovative and engaging initiatives that promote 21st century skills, but also the physical landscape with new state-of-the-art facilities that will inspire and enhance our students' educational journey. It’s all about how and where our students learn best.

"Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.."
