Grove City Area School District Reviews

It’s a decent school, it caters very well to exceptionally talented students and of which there are many. However, it can feel very cliquey, Grove City only has a population of 8,000, with only 120 seniors graduating this year. There’s very little diversity, in terms of race, religion, and sexuality. The teachers are wonderful, but clearly overworked. All in all, it’s your average Smalltown, America school.

The teachers were really great and nice. There weren't enough options for extracurriculars or classes other than the basic, core classes.
Many AP courses offered, dual enrollment options, vast array of sports opportunities (with winning records), new state of the art elementary school being built, strong inclusive practices, great community art program, large marching band, strong participation in music and drama programs.
