One Campus. One Mission. One GDS. For decades, GDS has dreamed of unifying our school on one campus, and now the stars have aligned. With the purchased property adjacent to our High School, construction is well underway on our new Lower/Middle School. Now all of our students, PK-12, can be together.
A Place of Purpose In fall 2020, Georgetown Day School will open the doors to a whole new school—a unified school, with grades pre-kindergarten through twelve residing at one address—lifting the GDS idea into the future.
The Evolution of Math & Science at GDS The year 1969 was a tumultuous and transformative one in American history, from the moon landing, to the Stonewall riots, to the Vietnam War; it was also the year that Georgetown Day School chose to launch its high school. Adding on to its already existing 9th grade, GDS would see its first high school class graduate in 1972. In the nearly 50 years since that first graduating class, not only has the world grown and changed at a rapid pace, but the curriculum offered to students, particularly in the fields of math and science, have as well.
Responsive Classroom Georgetown Day School is one of a number of elementary and middle schools in the region that has integrated the Responsive Classroom model into its curricula, while also retaining certain aspects that are uniquely important to, and reflective of, the values within the GDS community...
