Groton Public School Honored to Receive 2021 National Blue Ribbon School Designation


Thames River Magnet School Receives Award on Behalf of Mary Morrisson Elementary School Community from U.S. Department of Education


Congratulations to our former Mary Morrisson community, including students, teachers, administrators, staff and parents, for excellence in closing the achievement gap. Many students, as well as educators, from Mary Morrisson Elementary School (which closed at the end of last school year) are now at Thames River Magnet School, which is receiving the award on Mary Morrisson's behalf. 

This is Groton Public Schools second military school to receive a National Blue Ribbon School award; Charles Barnum Elementary School was a 2016 National Blue Ribbon School.

This is an honor for all of Groton Public schools. Mary Morrisson faculty and staff are now at Mystic River, Thames River and other GPS schools. The collaboration that has been occurring district-wide has been a big part of our success.

When one of us is showcased, we are all proud!  Congratulations to all!

Our Mission is Teaching and Learning


In a richness of cultures and with a respect for all, 

Provide dynamic rigorous curriculum.

Ensure effective and engaging instruction.

Build excellent learning environments.


GPS Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Vision Statement

Groton Public Schools embraces policies and practices that ensure that all people—especially those who have been historically marginalized based on race/ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender, age, socioeconomic status, immigrant status, educational status, or religion—have equitable opportunities.  We acknowledge that systems of racial and economic injustice exist in our nation and community; however, as educators, we too recognize that we have the power to dismantle the practices, policies, and systems that perpetuate inequalities.  Thus, an integral component of Groton Public Schools’ mission is to cultivate an environment of diversity, equity, and inclusiveness.  As a response, we strive to foster culturally responsive teaching and learning practices to ensure ALL groups feel valued, actively engaged, and empowered.
