About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.

Noah Webster Basic School Reviews
Best school ever. They push you to do your best. I finished off my sixth grade year strong. Thanks to all the teachers especially Mrs. Silvas. You see hardly any bullying. Send your kids to this school. It's great.
My son has attended Noah Webster since pre-k. Mrs. Flanagan was the most wonderful teacher and helped him easily make the transition into being a student as well as being away from home all day. The quality of education my son has recieved the past three years can not be compared to that of my older child who has always attended Mesa public schools. In fact he is far more advanced than the neighborhood children his same age who attend Jefferson.
Unlike most Charter schools, this school lacks none of the amenities of public school. They also offer a diversity of afterschool programs and have functions for the entire family. The fact that many of the students live as far away as Apache Junction and Queen Creek, should speak for itself!
There is a large teacher turnover and I have been bothered by the teacher/student ratio which has grown over the years, however this I have attributed to budget cuts (which also affect Charter schools). I feel the school to be very well organized, maintained, safe and secure. I have never once regretted the decision to send my son to Noah Webster.
My child was also in ms. leah's class for kindergarden and he did great. I appreciate that she gave the children down time at the end of the day to watch t.v. while eating their snacks and packing to go home. Full day kindergarden is not offered at every school so I feel my child has excelled just because of that extra time there. They also have homework nightly and I see his progress at home. However I would appreciate a live person answering the phone at the front desk while school is in session.
My child went to noah webster and after completing kindergarden with mrs. leah we found out that she was watching TV shows every day for up to 2 hours a day. This year she struggled in first grade because she was so behind in her learning.
