The main entrance to the High School is on the south side of Davenport Street, NW, accessible only from 42nd Street. Limited campus parking is available.


We highly encourage the use of public transit to the GDS campus as there are multiple direct bus routes and two Red Line Metro stations (Tenleytown-AU and Friendship Heights) within a few blocks of the school. You can get directions by going to the WMATA website. If you arrive via the Tenleytown Metro, take the Wisconsin Avenue West Side exit and when you come up the escalators you will be alongside Target and the Container Store. Walk north along Wisconsin Avenue and turn left on River Road, the next street. Walk down the hill two blocks to 42nd Street. Turn right on 42nd Street; the school is two blocks on your left. Please enter through the main entrance on Davenport Street.

Georgetown Day School's playground is open to the public during non-school hours for casual play.
