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 questions.
