Exposure to state-of-the-art technology begins in our Lower School and continues throughout the Middle and Upper Schools. In Middle and Upper School, laptops are vital to all courses and assignments. Greensboro Day School has one of the longest-running 1:1 (one laptop per child) programs in the nation. Since 1999, our students in grades 6-12 have been using laptops as an essential part of the curriculum. The 1:1 program now spans grades 1-12. Our program has proven effective in not only preparing our students for the 21st century but has led to significant improvements in student writing and more effective communication and research skills.
Beyond the walls of Greensboro Day School, we find that the alumni who participated in our technology program are significantly more prepared for college and are often viewed as the “experts” on their dorm hallways. We believe that it is important for our students to have an understanding and appreciation for the technology that they use both in and out of school. It is our goal that Greensboro Day School graduates have the digital flexibility and skills necessary to participate in whatever their future brings.
