Welcome to 5th Grade at Noah Webster Schools!
5th grade at Noah Webster Schools has a rich curriculum and we are excited to share it with you and your child. We are going to reach for the moon; it will be an exciting and memorable time! As 5th grade students begin the upper elementary years, Noah Webster provides a departmentalized learning model. Each 5th grade teacher teaches a core subject while the students rotate through the classrooms for each of the core academic subjects similar to a junior high/middle school.
Our goal is to work hard for you and ensure that our program exceeds the standard. It will be challenging and fun. Because we believe in each child’s uniqueness and abilities, your child will be expected to excel. Ultimately, parents, students, and teachers working together creates a truly independent, successful student!
As a part of the learning experience at Noah Webster Schools, 5th grade students step away from the traditional classroom setting and discover a new way of learning by attending scheduled field trips. The field trips align with the overall curriculum and subjects learned in the classroom to the outside world and real life experiences. Our 5th grade field trips vary year to year, but have included chaperoned trips to the Arizona Science Center & Planetarium and JA Biztown.

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 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.
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 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’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!
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.
Our daughter absolutely loves that she gets to use a laptop in class. We’re amazed at how quickly she is learning.
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.
