Welcome to 1st Grade at Noah Webster Schools!
Get ready for a fun and exciting year! Your child will have a blast as they continue to grow and learn each and every week. Students will begin developing their own methods of learning and familiarizing themselves with the 1st grade environment. Students will enjoy coming to school every day, seeing their teachers and friends, and working hands-on with some of the latest technologies. Although they may seem like beginners, our 1st grade students are expected to work diligently to prepare for a smooth transition into the next grade, while having fun in the classroom and working with others! Each school year, the 1st graders at Noah Webster Schools will venture outside of the classroom and away from campus to attend scheduled field trips. All field trips will align with the curriculum and complement a specific subject, topic or course the students are learning at that time. While field trips often vary from year to year, some past 1st grade field trips have included trips to the Phoenix Zoo, Phoenix Children’s Museum, and Vertuccio’s Pizza Farm.

1st Grade Teaching Team
Noah Webster Schools
I just wanted to take a moment to say how much we appreciate Noah Webster School. Our daughter is in Miss Tice’s Kindergarten class and talk about one amazing teacher! I never could have expected to have such a warm, energetic and compassionate teacher for our daughter. She puts so much energy and time into each day of learning, and my daughter literally cries if she is sick and cannot go to school. We look forward to our school adventure with Noah Webster. You all are a blessing to our family.
On the first day of school, while I was walking down the hall, I was kind of nervous because it was a new school. But when I walked in the classroom, I recognized some people I already knew, and that made me feel a bit better.
I have learned so many things this year, such as integers, Ancient Greece, and oxymorons. I have also learned things that will help me be a better person. I learned that respect is one of the most important qualities to have in life. My teacher is wonderful. She has empathy (most of the time) for us. She knows what it’s like to be in different kinds of situations, she knows how to cheer someone up, or make them feel regretful (when we misbehave). She understands our problems and gives us advice on how to solve them, whether it’s from personal problems to math or reading problems.
We went on a lot of field trips this year. My favorite one was the Water Day field trip at the Mesa Campus! We got to go on different water slides. I had so much fun sliding down the 40 foot tall Rhino slide and high-fiving everyone when I reached the bottom!
Everyday has been a different day, which I enjoy. I will always remember my experience in 6th grade here at Noah Webster Schools.
An excerpt from a 6th grade alumni to his 6th grade teacher:
“I just wanted to thank you for pushing me and my classmates as hard as you did. I recently took a math test to determine whether or not I should be placed in an advanced seventh grade class. Just yesterday, the results were received, my work was dubbed exceptional and they wish to place me in a freshman algebra class in high school! Of course I wasn’t the only one to do so, but one of the few. Thank you so much for everything, you will never be forgotten.”
I’ve made so many memories this year and I will always remember them. The best memory I have is just coming to Noah Webster Schools; knowing that I really enjoy going to school and not complaining about it in the morning. We had a lot of field trips and they were all amazing! This is the best school I’ve ever been too! I’ve learned so much more than at any other school.
The students here are all friends; there isn’t anyone who doesn’t feel welcomed. Everyone is nice to each other and treats each other the same. No one is different. The teachers are amazing and I just have to say “Thank You” to my teacher as she’s helped me out a lot and I know she will keep doing so.
This year was amazing and I will never forget it!
Our son was in Kindergarten this year and he loved it and loved the teacher & assistant teacher. He learned so much through the school year. I am very pleased to have started him at this school. To end this great school year with such a fun water day he so much enjoyed and talked about the whole day.
I am very impressed with my daughter’s improvement with all her academics and challenges of different schoolwork. I’ve seen an enormous difference in her and it has inspired her to love school. Thank you!
Our daughter absolutely loves that she gets to use a laptop in class. We’re amazed at how quickly she is learning.
My son attends Noah Webster and loves school. He’s always so excited when he gets home and ready to share what he’s learned each day.
Thank you to the staff at Noah Webster for making my child feel so comfortable. Starting school mid-year is never easy but he has really come out of his shell this year.
