Webster Micro Society Magnet School

School Overview

Noah Webster opened in 1904 as a neighborhood school serving the West End of Hartford. In 2004, the school underwent a dramatic renovation connecting the two original buildings maintaining the character of the old and adding the modern conveniences and technology. This became Noah Webster MicroSociety Magnet School. As a MicroSociety we connect the academics to the real world. Our students participate in classroom ventures where each room is a small business. Students, with teacher support, create the model, develop the business elements, work to earn money and then offer their products to other students to enjoy. As part of our MicroSociety model we also work with our students to ensure that we meet the Webster Way of taking care of ourselves, each other and our place. Our teachers work to create voice and choice in our classrooms to help to create relevance for the work in school as it connects to the larger society.

Outside of the classroom students have a wide variety of opportunities to engage in activities that broaden their skills and their opportunities in music, athletics and the arts in and out of school.

School Report Card – the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) has prepared this report, which includes information about student enrollment, student achievement, student and teacher diversity, and much more.
