The Quarry Lane School, a private, secular day school, provides an academically rigorous and supportive educational environment for students entering preschool through high school. Our ethnically diverse student body consists of 900 students at our three campuses. Students are guided by a highly qualified, professional and experienced staff of over 135 teachers. The Quarry Lane School is accredited by WASC, NCPSA and NIPSA.
In Quarry Lane’s pursuit of global education, the International Academy was introduced in 2007. Providing English as a Second Language (ESL) support for our students who join us from around the world is the cornerstone of our International Academy. Students have joined the Quarry Lane community from China, Japan, Korea, Angola, Australia, Taiwan, Thailand and many other countries.
As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, we have embraced the IB philosophy and curriculum along with the program standards and practices. This program provides students with the option to participate in an academically rigorous global education.
