Welcome to the Upper School at Greensboro Day School where leaders are born, career paths become clearer, and students develop a grander vision of themselves and their futures. During this important time, students make academic discoveries, grow their intellectual curiosity, and increase their self-confidence. Along with the excitement of new adventures and the choices we provide, they will come to take on greater responsibilities, develop a more rigorous approach to their studies, and experience the inevitable teenage ups and downs.
Our mission of "developing the intellectual, ethical, and interpersonal foundations students need to become constructive contributors to the world,” guides our work. We provide a community of students, teachers, parents, coaches, and administrators who work together to allow students to become lifelong learners and ethical leaders who constructively contribute to Greensboro, the greater community, and the world.
We encourage you to visit and experience for yourself our unique approach to creating the most dynamic and comprehensive academic environment in the Triad. When you visit, I hope that I will have an opportunity to meet you and talk more about how GDS will provide your child with unlimited opportunities!
Edward L. Billingslea, Upper School Director
