Groton community school is an amazing place! I've been here for three years and I can't say enough about the teachers and the staff. They are loving and caring which is exactly what I wanted in a school for my son! They are not only interested in my son but our entire family. The school offers so many enrollment options to fit out needs. My son is challenged every day he goes into class and also always has the most fun.

Truly an amazing preschool! My son loves it here. His teachers are wonderful, caring and committed, and work hard to keep parents involved on all levels. Great playground, pets in each room, gardens patches for kids, and NAEYC accredited - so we're also assured of their high-quality program!

Groton Community School has surpassed our expectations! Our children have attended the Camp Kaleidoscope summer program in addition to their school year programs. The environment is nurturing and educational; the staff is focused on the well being and growth of every child who walks in the door. I walk away knowing my children are in very loving hands that I can trust unconditionally. My third little one will be attending the toddler program when he's old enough to gain exposure to all GSC has to offer for his preschool/pre-K needs! Check out the school website for more information and pictures of the building and grounds (the outdoor space/playground is awesome!).

Our family has been at the Groton Community School for three years now, and we couldn't be happier with the entire experience. The teachers and staff are fabulous - they are truly dedicated to providing the best education to the students. We have also enrolled both of our kids in Camp Kaleidoscope during the summers and been impressed with the activities and experiences...GCS is like a second home for our kids!

I am a current parent at Groton Community School; and our family has been at the school for 4 years. The staff is incredible; not only are they nuturing and kind but there is longevity as well. The school is accredited by NAEYC, which means the school meets national standards in quality and excellence. The playground is marvelous! Check out their website at; there is a Facebook link there as well. This school goes above and beyond.

Groton Community School is a fabulous place for children, as well as families! All of the staff and teachers are energetic, enthusiastic, fun and knowledgeable! I have two children that have attended GCS and I am thrilled with the school overall. Many teachers have been at the school for 10 plus years, which really shows how the school is loved by all! When I was shopping around for pre-schools for my older child, I went to GCS first and never looked another place - it is wonderful!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
