At Glen Urquhart, children feel valued for their individual talents and skills. The lower school curriculum is designed with the developmental stages of children in mind. Concepts and skills are introduced to each child as his/her academic readiness allows. Two fully credentialed teachers in each classroom make specialization possible in specific curriculum areas so that the different developmental stages of children are better served.
Each grade focuses on a particular theme that builds on what has been learned before, expanding to more sophisticated ideas as the children are ready. Integrating these theme studies across art, music and writing is an important part of the curriculum. The Glen Urquhart Lower School is a wonderful place for children to be challenged, nurtured and valued.
