Groton is the best! Great people who all care for you and amazing friends who become like your family. The classes are challenging and engaging. They are also small and discussion based and science classes have frequent labs. Teachers care a lot about supporting you in and out of the classroom. PLUS fun traditions, cool sports and clubs, and good food. not super amazing sports teams competitively (varies w/teams) but very fun and good way to make friends

Groton is extraordinary. While some see a highbrow, Episcopalian, blue blood school, Groton offers more than other schools. Groton's facilities equal those of schools with 1,000+ students. Groton enrolls 380. Second, Groton's average class size is ten, best in the nation. Third, Grotties, love their school, feeling a sense of pride, ownership, and loyalty. Four, While prep school food is generally bland, Grotties dine on steak and crabs legs 1X-2X a week. Five, the teachers are all masters. Six, Grotties don't get cut from sports, clubs, or writing for the school paper. Seven, college placement is unrivaled. Colleges love Grotties, as they complete two years of Latin; sometimes three or four, plus Greek. The key success at Groton is work ethic. If you're not afraid to roll up your sleeves and work hard, you can't do better than Groton.
My son Mitchell went to Groton. Excellent education, very smart classmates. The endowment is over $380 million, or approximately $1 million per student today. Groton School received early support from th Roosevelt family, including President Theodore Roosevelt. Great teacher and amazing culture. Groton is small school with immense resources and extremely demanding academic atmosphere. The teachers were always well prepared for their classes. Groton prides itself on its "Circle ". Groton is a marvelous place to attend high school.
