This small suburb of St. Louis has not deviated far from its historical French roots. The land of Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Wood was sold and divided into what became several subdivisions of Frontenac, yet the city has maintained its predominantly 1 acre lots. This area is part of two school Districts --- Ladue and Kirkwood and has churches, synagogues, and businesses. Frontenac continues to be the area's upscale retail destination with Plaza Frontenac's benchmark shops, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. Find one of the most affluent St. Louis suburbs when you search for Frontenac homes. Located just 13 miles west of the city, St. Louis is easily reached via I-64 or I-44.
Frontenac public schools are excellent. They perform in the top tier on state testing. Ladue Horton Watkins High earned a College Success Award for the 2018-19 school year. The graduation rate is nearly 100%, and more than 80% of students go on to pursue higher education.
Plaza Frontenac is a high-end shopping center in town. Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus are anchors. Some of the other stores include J. Crew, Tiffany & Co., Williams-Sonoma, and Kate Spade. There are lots of great restaurants, too, where friends from Frontenac homes can meet for a meal. Head over to the six-screen theater, which often screens independent and short-run films.
For those who enjoy playing tennis, Frontenac Racquet Club is the place to go. There are programs for both adults and kids. Take a membership or purchase a pass for a set number of classes.
