Dr. Philip Piazza, Assistant Superintendent of Schools

Groton Public Schools is investing in the future by preparing our students for success in their 21st century learning and careers.  As a district we offer nurturing and challenging educational opportunities for all students to achieve their fullest potential and make a meaningful future as global citizens.  As a community, we are expanding school choice through intra-district magnet schools, programs and partnerships. We are proud to serve those who serve us, including our military families, as we celebrate over a 100 years of submarines in Groton.

At the heart of our work is highly effective professional development aligned to Connecticut Core Standards for all teachers, paraprofessionals, and administrators, aimed at improving student achievement. Professional development focuses on culturally responsive research-based instructional strategies that engage all populations of students to demonstrated high intellectual performance.
