Welcome to the Lower School

Many of the most consequential skills in education are learned in the earliest years of school. Language, memory, imagination, empathy, and a positive attitude toward learning are all potentially Lower School achievements. Each provides academic and social advantages that are lifelong and immeasurable.

Greenwich Country Day School is a place where boys and girls play and explore together and learn from each other. Our faculty know and appreciate the uniqueness of each child in their care, and they create a learning environment that provides a balance of challenge and support for each.

Our mission is to enable students to discover and develop what is finest in themselves, and, in doing so, learn to believe in themselves.

New Head of the Lower School

After a nationwide search, it is with great excitement that we announce Trudy Davis will be the next Head of the Lower School at The Greenwich Country Day School.

Trudy has her Bachelor of Arts in Education from the West Sussex University in England and her Master of Arts in Education from Teachers College, Columbia University. After teaching in elementary schools for a number of years in the U.K., Trudy moved to the United States. From 2003-2015, Trudy worked at the United Nations International School in Manhattan as the Assistant Principal for the Junior School. Most recently, since 2015, Trudy has been Head of the Lower School at the Stanwich School grades pre-k through 5. It is serendipitous to have this connection in light of our recent initiative to combine our two schools.

We look forward to Trudy joining us on the GCDS Old Church Road campus beginning July 1, 2018.
