My overall experience at Webster Groves High School was amazing. I feel that it is a very accepting place to go to school. We have so many opportunities for everyone to feel included in some way. There are so many clubs that students can join along with sports and many other extracurricular activities. You can even start your own club as long as you get a teacher sponsor! There are so many ways for students to become involved with the school. Many people come from many different backgrounds, ethnicities, sexualities, etc. and I feel there is very little to no discrimination, at least from what I have experienced. All the teachers and most of the students are very open and accepting to everyone. I also feel that every year I have had several teachers who I feel that I could come to about anything. To me, Webster has been a very supportive environment and I have loved every bit of it.

I liked Webster Groves High School (WGHS) a lot. The teachers knowledgeable about their subjects beyond the curriculum. WGHS also chooses class different than most schools. They choose classes based off what the students want and then form the teachers schedules last. Also WGHS a broader selection of classes, we have a lot of programs that many other schools don't have such as, the automotive department, makerspace, and computer technology that you can earn actual certifications in.
I've noticed that WGHS is #26 for STEM schools in my area (63119), at first I was dissapointed, but after some thought, am relieved....this is for STEM...
not STEAM!
Webster Groves is a quaint neighborhood with friendly, peaceful, intelligent, (for the most part) colorful, and cultural savy individuals. You can not raise and nurture these type of individuals and this wonderful environment without the ARTS. So Kudos to WGHS for accomplishing both!
