Senior Projects 2017

The Class of 2017 is busy shadowing doctors, learning the ins and outs of real estate, understanding how non-profits give back to the community, and what it's like to be behind the camera. Make plans to attend the Senior Project Showcase on Thursday, June 1 as they share what they have learned and share their experiences.

Read about a few of their projects here.

LS Director Letter: May 19

Dear Lower School Parents,  

I am so thankful to be part of a community that embraces opportunity. Last week I had the opportunity to travel with our fourth graders to Camp Weaver for their annual overnight trip. I am always impressed with how eager our students are to learn. What impressed me even more, however, was the way students represented themselves and Greensboro Day School. They listened, asked questions, cooperated, encouraged each other, looked adults in the eye, had good manners, and were incredibly respectful. It is our job as teachers to develop an intellectual foundation in students, but more importantly it is our job to develop ethical and interpersonal foundations that will help them be good people. Our students are good people; they are kind and tell the truth. On this trip, fourth graders demonstrated the importance of including others, taking turns and supporting friends. You can’t find another school that values teaching students these foundations more than we do. This is carried over to our middle and upper school as well. Jennifer Ford, Upper School Dean, recently reflected on this very same thing here
