Glen Urquhart GUS Admissions Open House 2017 Best Education North Shore Children

Tomorrow’s world is going to demand very different kinds of things of our children. Fortunately, Glen Urquhart is a very different kind of school.
At Glen Urquhart, learning isn’t confined to a book, a classroom, or even our 23-acre campus. For GUS kids, learning starts from within. When children leave GUS, they go as original thinkers with the academic readiness to meet the demands of the most rigorous high schools and colleges, and the global perspective to succeed in the new world.

When we look into the faces of our students, from the tiniest kindergartner to the most familiar 8th grader, we see individuals who  have a unique path before them, and we see the opportunity, responsibility, and privilege of helping those children dream, achieve, and succeed.

At Glen Urquhart, world-class academics and a world-wise curriculum help young minds that are open to everything develop into
exceptional global citizens who are ready for anything.

Glen Urquhart School, originally the North Shore Middle School, was founded in 1977 by Lynne Warren. The impetus for the founding of the school was a desire to provide an educational program that goes beyond traditional schooling and aims at the integration of intellectual, creative, and aesthetic learning. Glen Urquhart School is a co-educational, independent day school for grades K through 8 with a tradition of excellence since 1977.Small student/teacher ratio

"When deciding on the best place to send our son, I was baffled and overwhelmed by the options and the social, economic, and curricular repercussions. However, one visit to Glen Urquhart School changed everything. I could see immediately that in this environment he would not just 'attend' or 'learn.' I knew that I could trust Glen Urquhart to go beyond those expectations. I knew that he would be allowed and encouraged to flourish. There is a very tangible sense of belonging and a rare quality that goes beyond the standard private school mentality. Like most things extraordinary, it’s difficult to categorize—hard to pin down—what that quality is exactly. Glen Urquhart School is uniquely ‘GUS’ and this was evident to me the first time I set foot in the building. That uniquely GUS feeling has never let up, only intensified, every time I walk in the school.”
