Welcome to the Greensboro Day School Back to School web pages page! These pages will serve as the central information hub for everything you need to prepare for the 2022–23 school year. Information will be added and updated throughout the summer. We are excited for our first day of school on Wednesday, August 17, 2022!

New families: Welcome to GDS! We are excited to welcome you to our school community. Later this summer, you will be able to access the GDS parent portal, called myGDS, via the myGDS link on the homepage of our website. Look for an email later this summer with more information. You can also find helpful information on our New Family Resources page.
