Robert W. Groves High School (Groves High School, GHS) is a public secondary school located in Garden City, Georgia, United States, serving students in grades 9–12. The school is part of Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools, with admission based primarily on the locations of students' homes.

Long known as "the pride of the Westside," Groves High School has a rich community tradition that dates back to its founding in 1958. Established to serve the young people and families of West Chatham County, the school is named for Robert W. Groves, a prominent business and civic leader in the county. Besides his powerful role in business and his many commercial and community activities, Groves was concerned with the youth of the area and their educational needs. To that end, he was an avid supporter, both financially and morally, for many programs at the school.
Since its inception, some of Groves High School’s fondest and best attributes are the strong bonds it shares with the community and its residents. For decades, generations of Chatham County residents have been proud to send their children to this institution. Today, many a Groves Rebel can count him or herself as one whose parents and perhaps even grandparents were once Groves students as well. Many faculty members are also alumni.
