Mission Statement:

Our mission is to provide a learning environment that will improve student achievement. Our commitment is to ensure that each student is challenged academically and prepared for future college and careers. Students will experience success on a daily basis. We take responsibility and are accountable for the progress of each student.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

Noah Webster School is a public, non-profit, charter school located in Scottsdale, Arizona. Our school caters to Pre-Kindergarten through 6th grade students with a digital, hands-on and challenging curriculum that is aligned with and goes beyond Arizona’s State Standards and the technology based STEM Academy. With Noah Webster’s competitive edge, students are placed into classes by level of ability to allow each individual student to be challenged, but not overwhelmed. By integrating differentiated learning, students work ahead of the traditional grade level as they prepare for future college and careers.

Education for the 21st Century:
Noah Webster School not only gives your child the basic education they need, they also provide them with tools to help them succeed later in life. All of our K-6th grade students have tablets, and we also use a digital curriculum. Studies are showing that children that are given a digital advantage, such as in a technology enabled classroom, reach junior high school and high school with a firm lead over their peers. We believe in quality education that uses all of the technology and educational trends of the 21st century along with tried and true teaching methods.

Accountability and Academic Excellence:
We know each child has individual learning needs. Whatever level your child is at, or needs to be at, we can help them to reach that level or even work ahead of that level. Our commitment is to ensure that each student is challenged academically and prepared for future college attendance as well as going onto the workforce. Students will experience success on a daily basis. We take responsibility and we are accountable for the progress of each student. After all, we believe in teaching and teaching well, why else would we be named after Noah Webster?
