I would like to welcome all students and staff back for another school year. We expect this year to be an excellent opportunity for student success and personal growth. I would like to welcome six new staff members to our building. Angie Chamberlin will serve as our new aide in the jr. high and high school, Tracy Collins is our new librarian, Niki Johnson is our new high school intervention teacher, Milagros Richardson will be teaching Spanish, Haley Shuff will serve as our new jr. high intervention teacher, and Greg Sullivan is our new assistant principal and athletic director. Welcome aboard. You will make great new additions to the “Jeep Family.”
We strive to offer our students the very best educational opportunities while here at South Webster. During the 2016-17 school year we had 44 students receive college credit through dual enrollment or Advanced Placement (AP) opportunities, and those students combined to earn over 316 college credit hours. This resulted in a savings of $75,840.00 in college tuition for our students and parents.
This year we have partnered with Zane State College (ZSC) and Shawnee State University (SSU) for dual enrollment opportunities. Our students may now take English 1500, 2450, 2500, and 2600 through ZSC, Math 1200, 1250, and 2110 through SSU, Biology 1210, Psychology 1010 and History 1200 & 1210 through ZSC, and Art 1101 through SSU. All classes are taught by our teachers in our building during the regular school day. We are able to offer our students 41 hours of college credit through either dual enrollment or AP courses. We are very proud of this fact, and we strive to offer even more opportunities for our students in the future.
We are dedicated to the motto, “Doing what’s best for kids,” at South Webster Jr./Sr. High School. Our faculty, staff, and administration will continue to live up to that motto and work diligently to make every student’s experience a positive one.
If I can be of assistance or answer any questions, please feel free to contact me via telephone or email.
