Dr. Anthony Rossetti

Welcome to our website and to the Webb City R-7 School District, where we offer students an educational career to transform their potential into personal and academic achievements. The success of our educational program (reflected in our achievement data over the years) stands as testimony to the intensity with which educators and our community are united in pursuit of the objective.

Webb City Schools have a rich history of setting the highest achievement goals for students and maintaining strong links to our families and the community. Our schools routinely earn the Distinction in Performance rating from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, an honor we will continue to rigorously uphold. We're proud our high school ranked 17th in the state of Missouri as reported by Us News & World Report's Spring, 2013 listing of Best High Schools. View the rankings here.

An active community with a history of strong support for public schools, Webb City, Missouri is committed to providing and nurturing of family-friendly amenities. Webb City is well-known for its dedication to enhancing the lives of children and Webb City Schools play a central role in fostering personal growth and motivating students daily, as they grow to their full potential. Our enthusiastic staff of teacher, administrators, and support personnel serve about 4,130 students, PK-12, across 11 schools. Partnerships with a wide range of community groups, vibrant PTO, and a school board committed to public outreach: all are key elements in our school district's equation for sustaining strong communication and interaction with all of our patrons.

We invite you to get to know Webb City Schools better by getting involved with the outstanding things happening in our schools, and across our district. I encourage you to:

With the continued involvement and support of our community, our school system intends to maximize the promise of our mission, "guiding all students in the acquisition of knowledge and the development of skills that will enable each to become a productive and responsible individual."

Sincerely,
Anthony Rossetti, Ed.D
