Our school feels like a small learning community, yet with all the opportunities available in a large urban school. Partnerships with local universities, community organizations and parents enable us to offer many rich experiences, including artist residencies and field trips. Groveland’s resourceful parent group raises funds each year to bring in an Amity Intern – a native of Spain, Mexico or South America – who assists students in learning some of the Spanish culture and language. And each fall, our fifth grade classes travel to an environmental camp near Ely, Minnesota, for four days. Specialists in music, art, and physical education enrich our curriculum, and two science specialists ensure students in all grades have 100 minutes of science each week.

Pathway: Groveland > Ramsey (F1) or Highland Middle (F2) > Central (F1) or Highland Senior (F2)
