Welcome! And thank you for your interest in the Upper School. 

The Upper School at Bayview Glen is a space where young people can come to find their passions, hone their intellect, and develop into compassionate leaders of the future. 

Our interdisciplinary and inquiry-based approach to curriculum challenges and inspires students to see the crosscurrents between subject areas, developing a whole-world understanding of issues. Students can participate in a challenging Robotics programme, sharpen analytical skills in clubs such as Model UN or Mock Trial, or immerse themselves in enriching community service opportunities designed to give back to our community. In addition, students can challenge Advanced Placement courses – exposing them to the rigours of post-secondary level academics and the necessary time management, intellectual maturity, and responsibility that comes with such studies. Gryphon athletes compete on multiple teams across the Conference of Independent Schools league, learning about grit, teamwork, and the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle. 

Students develop a sense of their context in the global community, as a large emphasis is placed on experiential learning through participation in Round Square leadership conferences, exchanges, service projects, and virtual dialogue opportunities across the world.

Our entire programme is designed to foster a sense of belonging and achievement for every student who walks through our doors. Our students graduate self-assured scholars poised not only to excel at top universities but who possess a unique appreciation and respect for the diversity in our world and who are truly ready to be the leaders of tomorrow.
