Webb School of Knoxville is a Pre-K through 12th grade private, independent, coeducational day school in West Knoxville. Founded in 1955, Webb School provides a world-class, college preparatory curriculum that is continually evolving in light of technological advances, new areas of inquiry and opportunities for extracurricular engagement. Grounded in tradition, but educating for the future, Webb magnifies the potential of every student by infusing its rich curriculum with creativity, innovation and experimentation, focusing on personalization and tailoring each student’s experience – all in an inspiring environment with caring people.
At Webb, we strongly believe that an excellent education includes rich experiences, strong connections and the inspiration to imagine your future. Webb faculty bring their passions into the classroom and partner with students to create a vibrant community where honor, respect and character are embraced and each student is empowered to dream big.
The relationships we foster set us apart from all other schools. From our Lower School “FAMILIES” program to the Middle School advisories or our Upper School clubs, students connect with peers, teachers, coaches, alumni, and the greater community. Our students are seen, known and loved for who they are. Their experiences, perspectives and talents are valued, their voices heard. Webb is a place of possibilities where every day is an adventure in learning together and all students are supported and challenged to explore, reach higher and grow.
At our Sunday, November 15 Spartan Showcase, a Pre-K through 12th grade admissions Open House event, we invite interested families to experience, firsthand, the opportunities for their child to connect, imagine and grow at Webb School. Beginning at 2pm, the free event will highlight Webb’s unique offerings and programs as well as provide opportunities to tour our campus and its top-of-the-line facilities.
This includes our new Middle School Innovation Center that integrates engineering and robotics, and promotes greater learning and collaboration; our Upper School Learning Commons designed to engage students and teachers, and promote higher learning and advanced research; and renovations to our Central Building, providing a more intentional “front door” to our campus that celebrates our history and welcomes visitors in spaces that represent our commitment to excellence and community.
“Our Spartan Showcase is an opportunity for us to share with the greater community not just our impressive academic, arts and athletic programs, but also the breadth and depth of the Webb experience, says Webb School President Michael McBrien. “It provides a glimpse into how we are reimagining what an extraordinary educational experience looks like and how we are making a positive difference in the lives and futures of our students.”
