- Greensboro Day School opened its doors in 1970, the result of the dreams and hard work of dozens of parents who challenged themselves to build the best education possible for their childrenand for generations of children to come. Few of those parents expected a school of 95 students to grow so quickly into the leader in independent education that it is today. That challenge... to build a socially and economically diverse community that honors and nurtures relationships among students, faculty and community within a dynamic educational environment... is one we have gladly accepted and exceeded.
- Our academic programs are designed to engage, challenge, and inspire students.
- In our Lower School, we know that every child is unique, and every child learns differently. Our differentiated-instruction approach enables us to teach children the way they learn best and move them along at their own pace. It`s a personalized approach requiring our teachers to understand how each student processes ideas, and to modify their teaching techniques to address each student`s needs.We`re educating students for a world that is constantly changing. To stay at the forefront of that change, we are continually adapting and updating our programs. This is about more than just technology - we incorporate the latest research on child development in our teaching to be sure we`re employing the best instructional practices.
- The Middle School at GDS is ideal preparation for the challenges and fast pace of the Upper School. Our program incorporates the latest research on adolescent brain development. This enables us to introduce challenging material and concepts with the right blend o findependent and collaborative learning. Freedoms expand, teaching students the responsibility that goes with them. Students also receive the continuous support that makes them confident in their abilities.Greensboro Day School students are at home learning anytime, anywhere. By Middle School they are accustomed to constantly evolving technology, and they utilize the latest programs for homework and projects as part of their preparation for global citizenship.
- Along with classes that include History in Film, Marine Science, and Cabaret, we extend our Upper School classroom boundaries through technology: teachers moderate online discussions, post videos of class lectures, develop class web pages, and tweet project suggestions. The wide variety of classes and approaches mean our students pursue their interests and take those interests as far as they want. Whatever they take - regular classes, advanced classes - it`s always challenging and in-depth.With trips from Australia to New York City to India, our students take learning beyond the classroom. Seniors spend four weeks off campus testing a possible career. Juniors push their limits for five days backpacking through Pisgah National Forest. Sophomore Service Week jump starts students` drive to really make a difference. Freshmen choose from nearly 20 different activities for WoW (Without Walls) Week.
