About Noah Webster Schools
At Noah Webster Schools, we want our students to succeed, and with two campuses in Arizona—one in Mesa and one in Scottsdale—you’ll be able to choose the perfect campus for you and your family. This allows you to send your child to a technologically advanced public, non-profit charter school, at no cost to you! Of course we understand that you have a lot of choices when it comes to your child’s education, and this decision is not something to take lightly. With our 5-star promise and wonderful team of educators and staff, we know you’ll be pleased with your decision to join the Noah Webster Schools’ family.
We also know that each child has individual learning needs. No matter what level your child is at, or needs to be at, we can help them reach that level and even work ahead of that level if that is the best route for your child. Our commitment is to ensure that each student is challenged academically and prepared for high school, future college attendance, as well as prepared to go onto the workforce. Believe us when we tell you that we stand behind our 5-star promise!
Who Was Noah Webster?
Though he is now considered an American hero, Noah Webster’s beginning was very humble. Born to your typical colonial family in 1758, young Webster enjoyed learning more than most children his age. He decided to pursue a career in teaching, where he quickly realized that the American educational system was outdated. Webster pioneered change by producing his own textbook, referred to as the “Blue-Backed Speller”, which taught children how to read, spell, and pronounce words for over 100 years!
One of his greatest achievements was the creation of the American Dictionary of the English Language, now known as the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. Webster’s dictionary transformed the American language from traditional English to a unique, common language that unified how people across our country communicate with each other.
In addition to his contributions to the American language, he also founded Amherst College, fought for universal education, and raised eight children with his wife of 54 years. We are extremely proud and honored to be named after a true innovator of American education!
Studies have shown that as many as one out of four students has been bullied. Today, children are also using technology to bully others – through email, text messaging, and social networking sites such as Facebook.
Research has made it clear that this growing problem can’t be dismissed as “kids being kids.” Bullying can affect children’s attendance, schoolwork, mental and physical health.
Our school is committed to providing all students with a safe and secure learning environment. At Noah Webster Schools, we believe one of the best ways to do this is by working closely with and involving parents.
This year we have started implementing the research based Olweus Bully Prevention Program. Olweus is a program that helps to change the culture of the school over time by implementing four key components that reduce bullying.
We encourage students to always report instances of bullying to an adult at school and an adult at home. If you learn that your child has been bullied at school, please report it to your child’s teacher.
By working together, we can make sure all students have a positive experience in school this year and in the years to come!
Please learn about the components of the program, the definition of bullying, rules about bullying, and more in the parent pamphlet and presentation.

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