I've had a great experience at Greensboro Day School. Before I came here I thought studying in America would be easy if I survived the Chinese education system. Obviously, I was wrong. You will need to do well on every test, quiz, and homework to get a solid grade, not just your final exam. There is a lot more than just remembering equations in textbooks. You will get the chance to do the labs by yourself, which is interesting but more challenging. You can actually apply what you have learned from books to real life rather than just getting right answers and good grades. GDS encourages students to develop their talents in music, art, and sports. We had fantastic concerts, art gallery, and games. GDS is a great transfer from high school to college. You will never regret choosing GDS.”
