Ethan Webber is a Junior (Grade 11) at Clearwater High School and one of the original thirteen characters. He used to be a rebel who would get into trouble for the thrill and fun of it, also turning to drugs to help him with his problems, borderlining on addiction. He has since turned a new leaf after a court hearing where he learned he must repeat his freshman year. He is now more focused on his future and doing well in school, but is still very cocky and isn't afraid to hurt people in order to save himself. He started a lacrosse team which was a big element of his storyline in Season 3. Following being shot during the school shooting done by the kid he bullied, he developed PTSD which he learned to deal with after a while, but still haunts him to this day.   

He runs for school president in the fifth season and ends up giving the position to Danielle, as he knows she would be better at it. It is also revealed his father is gay when he starts dating his teacher. He finally accepts his father and attends his wedding. During the seventh season, he decides to try to skip his Junior year to catch up with his friends and girlfriend so they can graduate together.  

He is good friends with Danielle Hooper, Scott Taylor, and the presumably deceased Olivia Jerl. He is also friends with former enemies Micah Quick and Eric Stem. He is in a long-term relationship with Brittany Brith. He is portrayed by Adam Irigoyen.

He is then sent to the office and Olivia tries to cover up her laughing. At lunch, everyone is talking about how Jeremy and Jamie are perfect and Olivia tells Ethan he should date Danielle after he asks who would be good for him. At first everyone is arguing about whether they would be cute or not, and then Danielle tells him they should hang out after school. Ethan blows off his detention and tells her he'll see her then, despite Olivia's warning not to skip. The next day, he tells Olivia that his date with Danielle went fine, but she tells him that Mr. Hanson is looking for him. In his office, he starts acting like a smart-ass and pushing Mr. Hanson's buttons when he tells him that he can't skip detention. Mr. Hanson tells him it's either detention or expulsion and Ethan picks detention. Later that day, he and Liam are talking about his crush on Danielle and Liam tells him to make a move, so he does and tells her that they should hang out again. She agrees and he goes off to detention, trying to avoid expulsion.

This sparks another idea and Ethan asks how mean Alicia is willing to be. When she agrees to do whatever he wants, they leave to start to plan before the dance starts. They sneak out of the dance and Alicia opens up Danielle's locker so Ethan can change the dates of Danielle's periods in her calendar so she thinks she missed one.

After two rounds, they are tied, but Ethan wins the final round and wins back his title of captain. Ethan is ecstatic and is cheered on by his whole team. He is later talking to Liam about it and says that Micah looks pretty pissed. He then sees Sophie and she introduces him to her girlfriend.
