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 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.
