Webb School of Knoxville emphasizes a world-class college preparatory curriculum that is continually evolving in light of advances in technology, new areas of inquiry and opportunities for extracurricular engagement. Ours is a story that magnifies the potential of every student by infusing our rich curriculum with creativity, innovation and experimentation with a focus on personalization and tailoring each student’s experience – all in a dynamic environment with caring people. At Webb School, we don’t just know your child, we know their heart. We strongly believe that an excellent education includes rich experiences, strong connections, and the inspiration to imagine your future.
The experiences that our students are exposed to support the values that we instill in all students: honor, integrity, character, grace, self-confidence, and a love of learning. The connections 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. In addition, Webb students are encouraged to imagine a lot – to imagine what their future may look like; to use their imaginations to dream great things; to envision new discoveries; and to nurture their creative and innovative minds. Our students don’t just imagine it, they make it happen!
At our Sunday, November 10 Spartan Showcase, a Pre-K through 12 grade 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 in our Bishop Center and continuing across campus, the free event will highlight Webb’s unique offerings and programs through interactive presentations, classroom tours and more. From trying their hand at driving a 100-pound robot used at past FIRST Robotics competitions to sampling French cuisine in Webb’s International Center kitchen to learning what “passion projects” students are working on for the Lower School’s Creative Genius Initiative, guests will explore our signature programs, connect with our faculty and administration, and chat with current students.
“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 re-imagining what an extraordinary educational experience looks like, and how we are making a positive difference in the lives and futures of our students.”
