It only takes one visit to know that Greensboro Day School is a special place. When I walk across our campus, I am greeted by warm smiles, gentle hello’s and frequent invitations to sit and talk with students, and I know that you will be welcomed in the same way.
Since our opening in 1970, it has been the school’s intention to be a welcoming place to our entire community. Our student body represents many of the different ethnic groups within the Triad and cultures from around the world and they, along with our faculty, provide an engaging and safe environment for students to learn, explore and grow.
It’s hard to pick out even one or two highlights of the student experience at GDS. From our award winning fine and performing arts and music programs, to our championship athletic teams, and academic programs that prepare students to enter the most prestigious colleges and universities, GDS has it all. No matter what interest a student may have, there is more than likely a club or activity that he or she will feel comfortable in joining. Our students are known for their abilities in public speaking, problem solving, debate, community service, and leadership.
What unites us is a deep commitment to our core values of Wisdom, Community and Respect - Wisdom, through our academic programs, Community through our commitment to service, and Respect through our deeply held adherence to an honor code. Greensboro Day School is a place where students can feel that they are respected, held to a high academic standard, and bound to an honor code that supports them in ethical decision making.
I invite you to peruse our website, talk with our faculty and students, and take the time to visit the place that I have the pleasure to enjoy each and every day.

Head of School
