• The State of Missouri requires all high school students to have four years of English credit in order to graduate, and the Webster Groves English Department offers a wide variety of courses to meet their needs. A complete listing can be found in the Course Description Book.

    The Board-Approved English Curriculum can be found here

    We emphasize a novel-based curriculum with a strong focus on writing and research skills.  We offer both AP English Language and Composition and AP English Literature and Composition; in addition, students have the opportunity to earn dual credit through the University of Missouri - St. Louis in seven of our courses. 

    I welcome any comments or questions you may have.
