Webb School: Building for Tomorrow Today

Webb School of Knoxville copyA central goal of Webb School is to prepare students to enter into, and be successful and fulfilled at, competitive colleges around the country. As a college preparatory school, that is our core business. But beyond that end, Webb is equally committed to an engaging means – the daily experience of every Webb student every day – and we create programs and foster relationships that support those means. We also support our programs and students with exceptional facilities to inspire a best effort from all, and the newest phase of campus development reflecting that support is in full swing.

Four projects highlight this latest stage of development. The centerpiece is a 35,000-square-foot multipurpose building that will house a K-12 dance studio, a new robotics center, a broadcast journalism set/classroom, and additional classes for world languages and music. It will also hold a new gym used for Lower School P.E. and athletic teams.

The second project is an enhancement to the Upper School, including a new front entrance, an expanded weight training facility, and additional study space.

The third undertaking is an outdoor pavilion near Webb’s Lower School, which will enable Lower School classes to be held outside and provide sheltered space for social/recreational interaction.

The fourth project is a courtyard centered within our Upper School. It contains an outdoor classroom and gathering space for social interaction and/or quiet reflection and study. Its feature attraction is an eight-foot-high Spartan (the school mascot) crafted from scrap iron, stainless steel, and copper. This project is complete.

Exceptional facilities are not a prerequisite for a quality education, but being able to learn on a campus designed to inspire one’s best is an advantage for any student, and having specific facilities to support specific activities is important. Webb takes great pride in the work of our students and faculty, and we invest in and design our facilities to best ensure that their work is supported.
