Someone with an equally unique blend of leadership, entrepreneurship, academic understanding, administrative capability, empathy, and heart. A thinker, collaborator, and doer who will be all-in, hands-on, and ready to rally our faculty, staff, students, parents, and alumni.

Glen Urquhart School is a leader in Pre-K-8 education.

At the core of our challenging academic program today is the student - and the excitement of discovery.
