Fall in Love with GDS

There are so many things to love about Greensboro Day School. The Lower School builds a foundation to support a lifetime of learning. The Middle School is a safe place for students to explore and grow in independence. In the Upper School, students are taught to be creative thinkers who are concerned for others and globally aware. At Greensboro Day School, the belief is that learning is about questioning, exploring, collaborating, serving others and having fun. It is about building solid relationships with caring adults who know and appreciate children for their special learning styles and interests. Visit and see what there is to love at Greensboro Day School. The next “Be a Bengal for a Day” is February 7, 2014. Students will shadow a current student throughout the morning. Interested families can get more information or register for ‘Be a Bengal for a Day” at www.greensboroday.org/visit.
