The Greensboro New School is based on the best of Montessori, Waldorf and Reggio Emilia traditions blended with our own commitment to individual attention and growth.
We are teachers and parents. We love teaching and will use our experience, our knowledge and our passion to provide a unique environment for young children to grow.
We are building a school where children are excited to learn, where school moves to meet the needs of learners, and students are not molded to fit the school.
We welcome families in all their diverse forms without regard to disability, economic status, linguistic background, race, culture, religion or sexual orientation.
What Do Parents & Alumni Have To Say?
"I chose Greensboro New School for my child for many reasons. I appreciated that children of all ages of pre-school were mixed; my son interacted with both older, younger, and same aged children which helped him to develop his social skills. The focus of the school was on the socialization of children and becoming independent thinkers and empowered problem solvers. The teachers guided the children to resolve conflict on their own, and only intervened when necessary. I appreciated that there were almost never any worksheets--the lessons were creative and open ended. Lastly, it was important to me that my child be encouraged to be a good citizen and person without religious indoctrination. I would definitely recommend this pre-school and if I had other children, I would send them here!"

"My name is Xavier I’m in the seventh grade. I started Greensboro New School when I was 4. Greensboro new school helped me a lot. The teachers helped me learn to read. Also I experienced new things. Like learning math and making friends.There was a wonderful teacher that helped me with my speech. I learned Spanish through songs and it was outstanding.There was so many good memories. My favorite was going outside and playing with my friends. I'm so glad that I was able to have this experience. Thank you GNS for teaching me through play and music!!!"
