Greensboro Day School Reviews

Overall a good school with great academic qualities. The people do lack some realization of entitlement, but overall a warm and friendly school. Most teachers are superior at their jobs and the math teachers are much better than most in the Guilford County Schools area. The campus is beautiful, with a new middle school and an excellent theatre. The library is enormous which a state of the art computer lab and two art rooms along with an outdoor cilm. They also let the students of the different levels converse with each other and help them to become closer through things such as the Bengal Games. Go Blue Team!

Greensboro Day School not only provides a great education but also does a fantastic job of preparing students for the academic and social transition from high school to college. Having spent most of my education in public school, it is in my experience that the teachers at Greensboro Day have a much deeper care for their student's success than their public education counterparts. This level of interest in student success promotes an environment that allows students to be the best they can be. Because of the foundation laid by GDS, I felt as though I had a leg up on my friends during my first year of college. I only wish I would have enrolled earlier!
As private schools often are, the racial and socioeconomic diversity leaves much to be desired, the latter being nearly non-existent. The high school has some phenomenal teachers, particularly in the English department, but the Chinese program is incredibly understaffed with only one teacher in the high school who also teaches in middle, having 7/7 classes for most days.

Something that should be understood is that GDS excels in academics and college preparation, but you will find that students are heavily anxious because of this competitive nature as well as parental pressures. And though the school has taken steps to address this, it has been largely ineffective as, in it's very nature, a private college-prep school is a source of significant stress.

It should also be noted that 2019-2020 is seeing a new Head of School, replacing Mark Hale, so hopefully positive changes will be made under her leadership.
