Webb Elementary was established in 1953. It used to be called East Ward.
Webb Elementary delivers a distinctive, challenging and enriched educational experience to kindergarten-5th grade students. Building a strong academic and social foundation is paramount at the elementary level. For this reason, McKinney ISD teachers and staff are committed to teaching the “whole child” in our elementary schools. The elementary curriculum is consistent from campus to campus, ensuring a high quality education regardless of the school, yet allowing teachers the latitude to develop innovative strategies that are tailored to the individual child.
Webb currently has 420 students in K-5 and is also the home campus for the ALPHA program in McKinney ISD. Webb currently has 11 iPads in each k-1st classroom and 2-5 students each have their own laptop.
