2019-2020 School Year- On March 23rd, 2020, the Webster Groves School District began virtual instruction, which ran until the end of the school year. The district adopted a hold harmless approach—grades were not lowered from where they were as of March 12, 2020, the last day before Spring Break. Students’ grades could be improved, however, through teacher-provided virtual assignments. In addition, some final exams were not given for the spring semester.
2020-2021 School Year—Webster Groves High School moved to a 4x4 Block Schedule for the 2020-2021 school year. Students will earn .50 credit per class each Term (quarter).
Semester One = T1 (.5 credit) & T2 (.5 credit)
Semester Two = T3( .5 credit) & T4 (.5 credit)
The district has not determined at this time if we will be virtual or in-person for the second semester.
