GDS Experience

Tiny House CLEAR Lab Featured on WFMY

We’re excited that our Tiny House CLEAR Lab was featured in WFMY’s newscast recently! Since the beginning of the school year, sophomores have been working on the Tiny House under the supervision of art teacher Elizabeth Ramsey. This home is being built in partnership with Tiny House Community Development, a local nonprofit working to reduce homelessness in the Greensboro community.

This public purpose project is part of our innovative new upper school curriculum, called CLEAR (College and Life Engagement And Readiness), which is designed to equip our students with essential life skills and to provide opportunities for them to apply their learning to real-world issues facing our community.

One component of our Strategic Plan focuses on the role GDS can play to serve the Greensboro community. This public purpose component of our Strategic Plan highlights the manner in which an independent school can serve the greater public and lift up all areas of our city while broadening our students’ worldview. 

The Edward M. Armfield, Sr. Foundation provided three years of funding to GDS to engage in projects such as the Tiny House project shown in the news story.
Greensboro Day School develops the intellectual, ethical, and interpersonal foundations students need to become constructive contributors to the world.
