    Our Mission
    As members of the Webster Groves High School community we are dedicated to helping young people become capable, responsible and productive members of families, communities and a global society. To these ends, we provide a foundation of knowledge in a variety of disciplines designed to strengthen communication and problem solving skills, technological competencies, ability to gather and assess information, and the capacity to adapt to a changing world. We encourage life-long, aesthetic involvement, character development, and active concern for others. We foster a safe working and learning environment in which all members of the school community are encouraged and expected to succeed. By respecting and promoting the development of the individual, we enable all to strive to their fullest potential.
