Statement of Philosophy
The Webb City R-VII School District believes our ultimate goal is to promote the total development of the individual student so he or she may become a useful and responsible citizen in our ever-changing society. We realize the major responsibility for formal vocational, academic, and aesthetic training rests with the school; however the family, church, and community must share in the total educational process.
We realize the uniqueness of the individual and believe in the right of each person, regardless of ability or aspirations to an education geared to his or her own needs in so far as the satisfaction of those needs does not interfere with the overall welfare of the group. It is important the student be recognized for his or her own value as a human being through the academic program, co-curricular, and extracurricular activities. This recognition should encompass each facet of school and community life.
Throughout the educational process, the democratic ideas of our heritage should be stressed so that the political, social, and economic values of our society will be perpetuated. By this, we hope each student will be given the opportunity to develop civic responsibility through awareness of and involvement in democratic processes.
The mission of the Webb City R-VII School District is to prepare today's youth to meet the challenges of tomorrow's world by guiding all students in the acquisition of knowledge and the development of skills that will enable each to become a productive and responsible individual.
