Glen Urquhart School is a leader in pre-K-8 education. We are a progressive, place and theme-based, developmentally-aligned school. For us, "progressive" means we are child-centered, with the questions and ideas of our students being as important in the learning process as the goals of the teachers. We are "place-based," meaning that the North Shore and greater Boston are as much our classroom as a room with four walls. We are "theme-based," in that each grade level is focused around a central question or idea. And we are "developmentally-aligned," meaning we are trained and aware of the ages and stages of children's growth.
