Groton-Dunstable Regional School District Reviews
There are many things I liked about GD, but also a lot of things I didn’t. The students and teacher around the whole school were amazing. And the education was exceptional, I always felt like I was being challenged and that was good because it made me work hard. One thing I was not too fond of at Gd was the administration. Not particularly any specific administrator, just their overall system of how they work out problems and confront students. They were constantly stereotyping students when trying to find "suspects" for the smallest of things that would happen at the school. Also the athletic department needs a lot of work, to start, a new athletic director. The current AD does not do the best job at his job, where on several occasions teams had no buses or referees. Overall this is a great school system where I received a quality high school education, but there could be a lot of improvements to make this school function to the very high ability I know it can.
Very flexible with insuring that the student can take what they want, if you get the right guidance counselor. Recently they have been cutting a lot of programs due to funding. They also lack a substantial humanities department, with few electives and such, especially history where only one track is offered, US History, and there is no geography. I believe only one or two Social Studies AP classes are per year, with the same for English. The science and mathematics departments are definitely more established with three or more tiers of math being offered, with three AP classes and at least four Science AP classes. Off-campus dual-enrollment and VHS are offered.
Groton-Dunstable high school has made my high school years the best they could have been. The teachers and staff make everyday enjoyable. The school itself is clean and organized and the administration goes out of their way to make everyone feel welcome. The academics are outstanding with a highly ranked math department and many options, from interesting electives to everyday classes. In addition to all of this, my school has an amazing guidance department. Through my guidance counselor, I have had the opportunity to get a job at my local pediatric center and I had the opportunity to attend a health care field trip at Lowell General Hospital which never would have happened without her help. Whenever you walk in to the school you can sense the feeling of community. Everyone is there to help each other and for that I am so grateful.
