The program at Noah Webster MicroSociety Magnet School provides students with a rigorous academic learning environment built upon high expectations and inquiry-based learning within our meaningful standards-based curriculum. As a magnet school, we embrace our MicroSociety theme and pride ourselves in its integration of mathematics, writing, science, and social studies while weaving it throughout our academic day. Our students create a miniature society within our school and are all employed in ventures and agencies that encourage them to be productive and responsible citizens within our learning community. Our students are given voice and choice through the student government that is active in decision making and plans school-wide events. Our MicroSociety theme is in alignment with our rigorous academic curriculum and connects learning to the real world, making each student's education relevant and empowering them to make decisions and monitor their own progress. Noah Webster MicroSociety students leave our school with a vision for their future.
