"Enrolling at Greensboro Day School was an amazing experience! Teachers cared a lot about me, and they did their best to make sure that I fit in with the rest of the class. With their encouragement, I was able to make quite a few American friends who were also my track and field teammates. The GDS community is welcoming in general, and the classes are balanced.

However, GDS wouldn’t be GDS without its greatest assets - the teachers.

The teachers at GDS are some of the most caring, responsible, and easy-to-talk-to teachers I’ve ever had in my entire life."
