Groton’s Thames River Magnet School gets National Blue Ribbon
22 Sep 2021
Thames River Magnet School, a prekindergarten through fifth grade school, was named as a 2021 National Blue Ribbon School, the U.S. Department of Education announced Tuesday.
The designation recognizes "exemplary achievement gap closing" for the Mary Morrisson Elementary School community, Superintendent Susan Austin said. Mary Morrisson closed at the end of last year but its students, as well as some of the educators, are now at Thames River Magnet School, so the distinction follows them to the new school, she said.
