Children learn best in classrooms that extend beyond four walls into the surrounding world.
At Glen Urquhart School, each grade is focused on a different theme. The themes were carefully chosen to correlate with social, emotional, and intellectual development, and tie together every subject a child is studying and provide context for exploration. The child begins at the center, in Pre-K, kindergarten, first grade, and second; moves progressively out into the world; and then comes back to the center just when adolescence is hitting and self-reflection and self-awareness become two of the most compelling forces in his or her life. All along the way, immersion in the real world is woven into the fabric of GUS.
