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!

Webster Groves High School is an incredible school. There are a number of great teachers, nice students, and more than enough opportunities to satisfy anybody's interests. There are many fun events held, and there are even connections with local businesses that allow for certain events or connections to happen. The counselors are also very helpful, providing assistance with college, scholarships, schoolwork, or just guidance and assistance.
Overall, I love wghs. The community is so close, and there are so many clubs and activities to choose from. If you play a sport it really limits your ability to be in a club. It can be hard to get involved within the school. Also the school doesn't give a crap about the orchestra program despite being one of the best. The orchestra is growing exponentially and no one seems to care. The child development classes are the best! I definitely reccommend those. Webster has been my home for the past 18 years but I'm excited to leave and bring on this new chapter of my life.
