Webster Groves is one of the more affluent communities of the St. Louis County suburbs. The large historic homes, central location and outstanding schools draw many families to the beautiful tree-lined streets. Webster is also noted for its strong community unity – the Fourth of July parade and carnival is a huge event that families throughout St. Louis attend and the Turkey Day football game between Webster Groves and Kirkwood High Schools is one of the most anticipated events of the year.
Webster Groves is home to the world headquarters of Webster University as well as numerous public and private schools.
The Webster Groves School District serves Webster Groves, Rock Hill and parts of Shrewsbury. For seven consecutive years, the district has received distinction in performance awards from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). Three of Webster Groves' schools – Avery Elementary, Clark Elementary and Hixson Middle
– have also been named Gold Star Schools by DESE and grades, graduation rates and test scores are consistently high. In addition, the WGSD has received statewide honors for its professional development and teacher training.
Visitors to Webster Groves are usually impressed by two features: the trees and the homes. Nestled among clusters of elm, oak, and maple trees are gorgeous homes boasting large wrap-around porches, second and third stories, gingerbread trim and abundant, verdant lawns. Webster Groves has received the "Tree City USA" award for 15 years and is often compared to the historic areas of New England. Approximately 300 houses are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and more than 100 homes have received the "Century Home" honor awarded by the Webster Groves Historical Society.
