Academic Success Leads to a Confident Boost for Noah Webster Student
E.R. is currently a 6th grade student and came to Noah Webster in 4th grade. She was performing below grade level. During her time at Noah Webster, the teachers and support staff were able to assist her in obtaining success in academics, increasing her knowledge with subjects, and currently no longer needs academic support. In addition, over the last two years, E.R. has managed to reach grade level expectations and beyond. By surpassing all expectations, she is confident with herself and her academic abilities.
From E.R.’s mother, “I don't even know how to thank you. Not only for the change and your attention to all of my concerns. But most of all for everything that Noah Webster has done for E.R. You have no idea what a struggle every year has been for E.R. and it has really killed me to watch her. Our experiences at Noah Webster have been incredible. I probably don't have to tell you, but you have an amazing staff. My biggest regret is that I didn't bring E.R. there sooner.”
From E.R.’s mother, “My daughter E.R. has gone from barely getting by in previous years (even being held back one year) to being on Honor Roll 1st quarter. Her teacher is absolutely amazing. Not only has she brought E.R. so far, but she has also worked closely with me to do whatever we can to help E.R. She has raised her confidence level beyond any expectation. E.R. has also been involved with the "Girls Club" program. This program has really worked wonders with E.R. The teacher has gone above and beyond the roll of a teacher. She has always returned my phone calls/e-mails within hours.”
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!
