Greensboro Day School's experienced team of nursing professionals provides health care, first aid, and medical support during the school day. Their goal is to optimize a child's school performance utilizing their medical expertise and the information that parents provide regarding their child's health.
While your child is on the GDS campus, the health room is open for anything health related, from small bumps and bruises to significant health concerns.
The Health Room and the services it provides are an important part of a child's life at school, especially in the event of illness or injury. Our Health Room nurses get to know Greensboro Day School students and provide continuity of care as your child transitions from one grade to the next.
The Health Room also provides vision and scoliosis screenings for students as needed.
