About Us: Glen Urquhart School (GUS), is an independent, coeducational day school for students in Pre-K through grade eight.

 Description: Glen Urquhart School’s Teaching Fellowship provides an entry level teaching opportunity for recent graduates or career changers seeking to begin a career in independent elementary school education. The GUS fellowship program allows them to gain valuable experience as teachers in the classroom.
