The Upper School at Greensboro Day School delves into unique learning opportunities that challenge students to discover who they are and who they hope to become.
A broad range of challenging classes and approaches allow our students to pursue their interests on a deeper level with specialized topics such as Contemporary Global Issues, Astronomy, and Cabaret. Experiential, hands-on opportunities encourage our students to take learning beyond the walls of the classroom. Juniors push their limits for five days backpacking through Pisgah National Forest, while Seniors spend four weeks off campus exploring a possible career. Options for real world experiences abound with options for global travel to destinations including South Africa and Iceland.
To remain current in our ever-changing world, technology is utilized in many ways –teachers moderate online discussions, post videos of class lectures, develop class web pages, and tweet project suggestions.
GDS is a place of high expectations. Yet, with so much support, it’s hard to be left behind, and it’s easy to get ahead. Our Student Support Services are here for all students, whether they need enrichment or extra help. Our staff of curriculum specialists, counselors, and learning specialists assist teachers, students, and parents in helping children reach their academic potential.
