“How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” – A.A. Milne


As we wrap-up our final week of virtual learning, we want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we worked through issues together over these last few weeks. While the final semester of school has not been an easy one, we have been so impressed by the hard work our students have put into virtual learning. As a staff, we often speak of "growth mindset", meaning our ability to grow and learn especially during challenging times. Little did we know we would have such a hands-on learning opportunity ourselves! We hope everyone has a safe and healthy Summer! Please contact us with any questions, and we will be providing additional details as we get them regarding Summer activities, Senior events, and Back to School information.

Class of 2020 Updates

Prop C & S

The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly altered the District's short-term operations, but it has not changed the District's long-term needs. Propositions C&S are on the June 2, 2020 ballot to accommodate the continued growth of the District, as well as the need for additional staff and wage increases to help close the gap between the WSD and neighboring districts.


PROPOSITION C is a $105 million no-tax-increase bond issue to build a new middle school on the same site where the District is currently building a fourth high school, to expand and renovate the District’s three existing middle schools, to address maintenance issues at existing buildings and purchase items related to school safety.


PROPOSITION S is a $0.49 tax levy to address staffing and provide needed support across the District, improve salaries to address widening wage gaps between the WSD and neighboring school districts, and to update and add safety features across the District.


The WSD continues to be the fastest growing school district in Missouri, adding on average nearly 600 new students each year since 2001. This past year, enrollment increased from 16,789 students to 17,335 – an increase of 546 students. Now, more than ever, the District must address the need for space and additional staff to meet the needs of all students.


As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the St. Charles County Election Authority is anticipating increased participation in absentee voting ahead of the June 2 election. The deadline to apply for an absentee ballot has been extended to May 20 and in-person absentee ballots may be cast in the Election Authority office until 5:00 PM on June 1. Absentee ballots sent by mail must be received by the Election Authority by 7:00 PM on June 2.

WSD Communication Survey

It is the vision of the Wentzville School District to be a model of excellence that sets the standard and maximizes the potential of every student. In order to continuously improve on our commitment to provide a quality educational experience for your child(ren), we ask that you take the time to complete this short survey regarding school and District communications. If you have students at more than one school, you may fill out the survey separately for each school if you wish to provide more specific feedback, but you will need to do that on different devices.

Thank you for your feedback and assistance!
