GET TO KNOW GDS

Greensboro Day School

Greensboro Day School (GDS) is a private, coeducational school with approximately 865 students from age two to grade twelve. We are located on a beautiful 65-acre campus in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Since our founding in 1970, we have earned a reputation for academic excellence by offering the best, most well-rounded educational experience in the Triad.

Aditya Badve

At GDS, students are treated as individuals, not just numbers. While a student, I grew my confidence while taking advantage of learning opportunities in and out of the classroom. I learned to never say no to something new and how to advocate for myself.

Stephanie Marshall Thompson

GDS gives autonomy to students to shape their own experiences. This is crucial to becoming an effective leader later in life. GDS taught me the value of public speaking and organizational skills and the confidence to tackle any challenge. 

Molly Levinson

My teachers inspired me because they challenged me every step of the way, but they also believed in me. GDS gave me many opportunities for leadership. It was a place where I learned to love being on a great team, setting goals, and working together to achieve them.

Kess Thongteum

Greensboro Day School prepares students by providing them with a safe place to make mistakes. Students are also encouraged to be creative and try something new; as a result, students learn who they are and discover their passions before leaving for college.
