Glen Urquhart School’s program was founded in 1977 on an experiential, place-based philosophy that integrated all subjects and created opportunities for students to be passionate in their pursuit of knowledge.
At the core of our challenging academic program today is the student - and the excitement of discovery. Our students are offered multiple ways to access learning through traditional methods, as well as innovative activities and projects that promote conversation and deeper thinking.
Where Real Learning Takes Off
I think GUS is different from other schools because they have a curriculum for social-emotional education, and that’s something I haven’t seen in others schools… My children feel connected to themselves and the teachers, and they are comfortable - and that’s where real learning can take off.
- Heidi Gorton, GUS Parent
