Why GHS?

Rising high school students from the towns of Griswold and Jewett City, Voluntown, Canterbury, Lisbon, Sprague, Franklin, Norwich, and Preston can choose to attend Griswold High School. Griswold High School is a great option for students grades 9-12!

Griswold High School is a close-knit community where you will be supported every step of the way while you find yourself in classroom and extracurricular settings.

Here’s what current students from neighboring towns that chose to attend GHS have to say:

“I chose Griswold High School for the music program, because I am so passionate about music. I also chose it because it was smaller and I would get to know people better and have a close group of friends. I really love the friendships and the close relationships with the teachers!” — Paige A. '24, from Voluntown

“I love GHS because they offer many different career paths and I love the Nexus Lab. The School is like one big family.” — Jack Z. '24, from Lisbon

I picked GHS because of the community. I have had great opportunities to grow, get involved and make memories with great teachers, coaches and friends.” — Luke C. '25, from Voluntown
