Glen Urquhart School is hosting a special discussion about the importance of school climates and empowering the voices of youth.
Glen Urquhart School is pleased to welcome Harvard School of Education lecturer and author Gretchen Brion-Meisels to campus on May 22 for “Middle School Voices: Student Perspectives, Empowerment, and Action.”
Join us as we discuss and learn about the importance of partnerships and positive school climates in the support of authentic learning, student leadership, and problem solving, especially for students age 10 to 14. GUS middle schoolers will present their project-based learning initiatives and Director of Upper School Gretchen Forsyth will share how listening to student voices has shaped the current program and how she experiences their everyday expansion of skills and knowledge.
This event is free to the community and students from 4th grade and up are encouraged to attend! Please register to let us know you are coming.
About Glen Urquhart School
Giving a child an enriching education that enlivens their every day, challenges their every thought, makes them stretch their intellect beyond their imagination, and their imagination beyond the edges of the universe, this is GUS.
Glen Urquhart School (GUS) is an independent, co-educational school for grades kindergarten through eight located in Beverly Farms, Massachusetts. GUS welcomes students from 25 towns and cities from the North Shore of Boston. GUS teaching continues to be informed by a commitment to knowledge, creativity and character.
At GUS we believe in children working hard, challenging their intellects, and preparing for the top high schools, colleges, and careers. We also know that academic rigor must exist in a community that encourages taking risks, values collaboration, fosters leadership, honors every child's experience, and emphasizes the power and responsibility each student has in the world.
