I have read similar questions on this forum and as per best of my knowledge it should be considered plural because it's referring to every student of class.

I read this sentence in my grammar book: "My group of tenth-graders is so well behaved?"

But my instincts says the word "is" should not be used. I'm confused now. Please confirm whether I'm right or wrong.

Is should be used as the predicate agrees with the subject in the sentence and in this sentence the subject is my group which is singular.
