Groton Dunstable Regional High School Reviews

168 reviews

GD is a good school with great academics, teachers, difficulty of classes and college readiness. However, it is lacking in education in technology. The only technology or coding classes are electives that don't teach students very much and are not taken seriously The math department is amazing with a wide range of difficulty in classes and a great group of tight knit teachers. The science department is good as well with lots of subjects going up to AP and most teachers are very good. The english and history are pretty good, most teachers are amazing but there are a few that are not good at all. Finally, the spanish department is great and has a cool program emphasizing speaking over memorization and exams. Most elective classes are lacking in difficulty and purpose. They are only time fillers or graduation requirements and don't teach anything meaningful. But overall, the teachers are amazing and truly care about their students and go out of their way to help in any way that they can.

This is one of the safest and most inviting high schools you can find. There has not been a fight or a teen pregnancy for many years. Most of the teachers are very good, and extra help is available to those who need it. Although we do not have much racial diversity, no one is treated differently for their skin color, and on the rare occasion that they are, the administration responds quickly and effectively. The class diversity is impressive, although the block system scheduling stops some students from being able to take every class that they desire. There is a school council that brings student opinion into how the school is run. Overall, it is a place that I would like to send my kids when I am old enough.
At Groton Dunstable Regional High School the academics are great and more teachers care about their jobs than not. Socially, as it is a small school of just under 900 kids, there is definite cliques and most everyone knows everybody and something about them. This can create for a close community but also drama. Students are generally respectful however enjoy talking about others. Sports teams do fairly well. Heavy focus and big push for students to go to college. Got a new lunch system in 2019-2020 that serves a great variety of options...that is not to say they are delicious but they have improved.
