Webb School is a private, coeducational K-12 college prep school. The school was opened in 1955 by Robert Webb with just four students in a leased space at Sequoyah Hills Presbyterian Church. Today the school rests on 100 acres of land in West Knoxville and has an enrollment of more than 1,000.
The school’s eight buildings house classrooms, visual and performing arts space, libraries, athletic facilities, cafeterias, a nursing office and more. Many of the school’s buildings have been built since 1997. An Upper School Science Center and International Center for the Study of World Languages and Cultures are scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2009.
The school is easily accessible from both Interstate 40 and Pellissippi Parkway. It is located at 9800 Webb School Drive.
The school is served by 100 staff members; more than 75 percent hold advanced degrees. Class sizes are small: both Webb’s middle and high school have an average of 16 students per class.
Athletic facilities include a football stadium, softball, baseball and soccer fields, volleyball and basketball courts, swimming pool, outdoor track, outdoor and indoor tennis courts and a wrestling room.
As a college prepatory school, Webb Upper School (i.e. high school) has 25 Advanced Placement courses available to students.
Webb is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools.
