My son went to Groton. It's an extraordinary place of learning. He got an amazing education there and remains a close friend with his faculty advisor who is now retired.

However, Groton isn't for everyone. The students tend to all be type-A kids who never have been less then the best wherever they were before Groton. Many also come from significant means. They are pretty competitive people and that has an impact on life at Groton. It can be a pretty big adjustment for some as a result.

For the right kid, it can be extraordinary.

I would choose Groton again and again. I am now a sophomore in college, and the lessons I learned at Groton have served me well. The academics are rigorous and top notch, but that is the case at all of the top boarding schools. What sets Groton apart is its community- I will never forget the friends and mentors I made there. I often wonder how different my life would be had I stayed at my day school, and while it is pointless to dwell on the road not travelled, I am certain I discovered more about myself in three years at Groton than the nine years I spent at my previous school. My friends from Groton are always in my thoughts and dreams, when not in my living room.
This is one of the best schools we've visited and experienced. The teachers are top notch and willing to go above and beyond for the students, the students are extremely kind and noble in the way they relate to one another; and needless to say, this stems from the leadership, Temba Maqubela and his wife. No wonder it is the most selective school to get into in the nation.
