Testimonials

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.

–Annika T.

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.
