Academics at Noah Webster
Studies have shown that children who are given a digital advantage—such as in a laptop or tablet enabled classroom—reach junior high school and high school with a firm lead over their peers. At Noah Webster Schools, we believe in a quality education that uses technology paired with tried and true teaching methods to help your child gain the best education possible.
Our curriculum is aligned with and goes beyond the Arizona State Standards. Through digital programs, teachers not only have access to the hardcopy textbooks in their classrooms, but also to other engaging curriculum and resources, providing our teachers with easy access to the finest instructional materials available! With a few simple taps of the teacher’s finger, the library of material and lessons they have in their classroom grows considerably, allowing the curriculum and subject matter to be customized throughout the school year.
Classrooms are grouped based on ability, allowing teachers to adjust the learning pace for each group and provide more individualized attention, therefore boosting the confidence and determination of students as they realize their individual progress. Teachers use benchmark data obtained at set intervals throughout the year to make data driven decisions for planning whole class, small group, and individual learning and instruction.
Each classroom has an interactive display and document camera allowing teachers to actively engage all students. At our Mesa campus, each student, third through sixth grade, has a laptop assigned to them for use throughout the school year. Kindergarten through second grade students have scheduled laptop computer time during school hours. At our Pima campus, each student, first through sixth grade, has a laptop or tablet assigned to them for use throughout the school year. Kindergarten rooms have tablets in the room for small group learning.
Noah Webster uses Moby Max which is a computer based program where students take an initial placement assessment that will help determine a student’s specific learning needs. The program is adaptive and can be used to provide additional learning of concepts and also accelerate students who are ready to move on to more advanced concepts.
