Other information

Groton Public Schools is a school district located in Groton, Connecticut, United States. The Groton Public School District services students from the City of Groton, Town of Groton, Groton Long Point, Noank, and West Mystic areas. The school district includes students of families who are employed at General Dynamics Electric Boat, Pfizer, and US Navy Submarine Base NLON. Due to the military population, a large number of students move in and out of the school district due to military transfers.

Groton students who continue on to college have many options locally, in addition to the traditional choices. The Groton school district maintains close ties with nearby colleges. Nearby colleges include Three Rivers Community College in Norwich CT; Mitchell College in New London, CT; Connecticut College in New London, CT; and University of Connecticut - Avery Point Campus in Groton, CT.
