Academics at Noah Webster
Studies have shown that children who are given a digital advantage—such as in a laptop or tablet enabled classroom—reach junior high school and high school with a firm lead over their peers. At Noah Webster Schools, we believe in a quality education that uses all of the technology and educational trends of the 21st century, paired with tried and true teaching methods to help your child gain the best education possible.
We nurture a partnership between our school and your family regarding the benefits of the technology programs and new technology based learning models. We also invite parents to participate in multiple technology and curriculum trainings and presentations throughout the school year. This commitment to technology helps each student extend learning beyond the classroom and into their home environment. Putting a strong emphasis on not only technology, but on science, engineering, mathematics (STEM), and the fine arts as well, our schools introduce students to a wide range of subject matter, allowing them to find what they excel at and what truly makes them happy!
Our Noah Webster Schools STEM academy, curriculum design, and technology programs teach students how to apply specific knowledge and skills necessary to their future success in higher education and careers. Our curriculum is aligned with and goes beyond the Arizona State Standards. Through a program called Beyond Textbooks, teachers not only have access to the hardcopy textbooks in their classrooms, but also to other engaging digital lessons, providing our teachers with easy access to the finest lessons available! With a few simple taps of the teacher’s finger, the library of material and lessons they have in their classroom grows considerably, allowing the curriculum and subject matter to be customized throughout the school year.
Classrooms are grouped based on ability, allowing teachers to adjust the learning pace for each group and provide individual attention, therefore boosting the confidence and determination of students as they realize their individual progress. Additionally, Noah Webster Schools adds another component of differential learning by implementing a standard-based technology program. Our curriculum allows the generation of student achievement data that provides teachers and their education design teams with the ability to identify concepts and topics that the individual student has either mastered, or needs additional help with.
Our curriculum is designed using A AnyWhere Learning System, an individual student performance management reporting system which provides feedback to parents, students, and educators throughout the school year. At our Mesa campus, each student, third through sixth grade, has their own laptop assigned to them for use throughout the school year. Kindergarten through second grade students have scheduled laptop computer time during school hours. At our Pima campus, each student, kindergarten through sixth grade, has their own Samsung tablet assigned to them for use throughout the school year.

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.
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."
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.
