Groton School District Reviews

I liked how the teachers are eager to prepare you for college and most want to help students anyway they can. Groton is a very diverse area which prepares students better for interactions in the real world. The facilities are average as the district doesn't have the funding for proper up keep and updating. My only major compliant is the guidance office not helping high school students more with college. I asked them to send my transcript out in September. I get an email from a coach recruiting me that the school didn't have my transcript. I went back and asked them to send it and they put it in the mail, and sent it to the wrong school. Other than that recent incident my overall experience was good.

The teachers are always involved with the students and if a student is struggling they don't think twice about staying after for extra help or making time throughout each day to give that student/those students the extra help they need. As a student athlete I felt there was a great support system willing to help with whatever I needed when it came to sports or school work. I was able to confide in multiple teachers but the one that has impacted me and helped me the most was my chemistry teacher. I was able to go to her for anything with any questions and know that she would give me her honest opinion.
Love the diversity of this district! Most problems come down to the budget. One of two high schools in the state to offer IB Program classes. well-maintained schools and competitive sports.
