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 a rich curriculum with creativity, innovation, and experimentation with a focus on personalization and tailoring each student’s experience – all in an inspiring environment with caring people.

 

Personal + Inspiring.

Webb School is dedicated to creating and sustaining learning environments that encourage a student’s natural curiosity, helping kids discover who they are and what they love in a supportive, close-knit setting. Our faculty bring their passions into the classroom and foster deep, caring relationships that inspire a true love of learning – all the while incorporating honor, respect, and character at every turn. From morning community meeting and the multi-grade FAMILIES program in the lower school, to the middle school’s daily group advisories, to peer-to-peer support initiatives and the guidance of dedicated faculty and coaches in the upper school, Webb students are inspired, nurtured, and known.

 

Tailored + Innovative.

In addition to providing a superior balance of programs in academics, arts, and athletics to its 1,000-plus students, Webb is focused on innovative approaches and initiatives that engage students in creative ways and spark a desire to serve the community and the world. Webb faculty continually imagine, innovate, and implement curricula and extracurricular opportunities that expose students to different perspectives and demonstrate the interconnectedness of the world today. We also know that learning comes alive when young people are empowered to thoughtfully solve problems and formulate their own ideas while exploring their passions and interests. This is at the heart of Webb’s STEM offerings, as well as the fifth grade Creative Genius Initiative and the high school’s Research Fellows program. It also serves as the catalyst for student-created programs like Webb MD that puts upper schoolers in direct contact with mentors and experts in the healthcare field.

 

Extraordinary + Leading.

More than 60 years after its founding, Webb School stands as a top-tier Pre-K through 12thgrade independent school; proud to have realized the vision of its founder, Robert Webb, when he said, “I want to start a school that educates young people in extraordinary ways.” Our alumni are a testament to how an extraordinary education inspires and prepares students to lead extraordinary lives. Spartan graduates have gone on to change their communities as leaders across business, the arts, technology, medicine, government, nonprofits, education, sports, and others.
