Groton Middle School Scheduling

The Groton Middle School schedule is a variation of block scheduling. Students are scheduled for four blocks per day, rotating every other day (A Day and B Day).
  • Most classes are a full block (84 minutes) in length, however, there are some classes that are periods, and are shorter (42 minutes) in length. Student schedules will be designed to accommodate both types of classes for a total of eight (8) credits. 

A full list of these classes can be found in the GMS Course Catalogue.
