Today`s research confirms what we`ve known since Glen Urquhart School began.
People need to use both the right and left sides of their brains to tackle the challenges of our world.
Knowledge from different disciplines needs to be synthesized.
Creativity needs voice in mathematics and science as well as in visual and performing arts.
Only then are the best solutions found, and the greatest accomplishments made.
Glen Urquhart's interdisciplinary curriculum helps students understand that one discipline informs another.
Students see literature, science, mathematics, world language study, and social studies as interrelated.
They grasp that one cannot fully learn about any discipline in a vacuum, but must study the connections to other fields. The Glen Urquhart multi-focused approach, enhanced by a student: faculty ratio of 7 to 1, prepares young people to be the thinkers and doers who can make our world a better place.
The school`s motto, Meane Weil.
Speak Weil.
Doe Weil, taken from the clan of Urquhart in Scotland, expresses the values promoted in the school every day.
