Webster Groves is right smack in the middle of everything. Highway 44 runs right through the middle of Webster which makes getting anywhere SUPER easy. Highways 270 and 64 are also super close so the location is ideal. The houses in Webster are full of charm and character. Some of the houses are more than 100 years old so you have to be willing to take on an old lady with all of her baggage. There will be knob and tube wiring and older basements. The adorable downtown area offers shopping and restaurants all within a great walkable community. The school system in Webster Groves is great. One of the local traditions is a Thanksgiving Day football game between Webster Grove high school and Kirkwood High, the neighborhood just to the north. There are 5 different elementary schools and one middle school. The community is very close knit and there are a lot of local events and festivals throughout the year. The annual 4th of July Parade is one of the most popular in St Louis followed by nightly fireworks at the Webster Groves middle school Hixson.

There is no lack of food to walk ride or drive to in Webster Groves. The Old Webster “downtown” area of Webster offers everything from wine bars to fine dining to Mexican to Sushi. Old Orchard has several options on the east side of Webster. Frisco Barroom is a great place to get some pub food and enjoy and LOVELY patio if the weather will allow it. Great wine list and always a good selection of local beer on tap.
Just down the road is a totally different experience at Cyrano’s. Cyrano’s offers a fantastic lunch and inner menu with some of the best desserts you will find in St Louis. Cyrano’s has become a favorite of those going to enjoy a play at the Repertory Theater of St Louis just across the road on Webster Universities campus.
Head west on Lockwood and discover Old Webster and the wealth of options for food there. One of our families favorites is Deweys Pizza on Lockwood. Great Pizza and again a great selection of local beer on tap. If you are looking for sushi check out Sushi Station on Gore or some of the best bean dip in the city can be found at our favorite Mexican joint San Jose just next door on Gore.
If you are looking for something a little more high class you can hit Olive and Oak for amazing foos and wine or Robust Wine Bar. Robust has a cute patio out front, it’s not huge though so if you’re looking for an outdoor sip of wine you may want to get there early.
The Webster Groves school district is thriving. One of the biggest attractions to Webster is the school district but public schools are not the entire story.
The College School is also located in Webster and offers an accelerated learning environment in a very hands on sort of environment. Here is an excerpt from their website about their learning methods: For early childhood students, experiential learning could mean creating and running their own grocery market. Fourth and fifth graders might tag Monarch butterflies and contribute their research to national institutions. Third graders might research, imagine, and plan a model community, while eighth graders navigate the Okefenokee Swamp, Smoky Mountains, and a barrier island performing field ecology research. Second graders might stage a Mexican Market, complete with song, dance, and handmade crafts, as kindergartners work in our greenhouse to record observations of plant growth in their science journals.
There are also a wide range of parochial schools in the area. Since my specialty is real estate and NOT education I’ve attached a link HERE to all of the private school opportunities in Webster Groves.
Webster Groves public schools as a district is a solid choice though if you are looking for good public schools.
