Lower School Academics

The Quarry Lane School is proud to announce that we have been voted A Family Favorite Elementary School for 2015! 

The Quarry Lane Lower School is proud to offer an academically rigorous curriculum with a focus on promoting contextual learning, analytical reasoning and critical thinking skills through hands-on, real world experiences. Through careful program and curriculum design, we work to meet and exceed the Next Generation Science standards in an effort to engender great minds and creative thinkers. Using the field of engineering as a unifying theme, students analyze their own data and make decisions about their design, engage with content and take ownership of their learning. Our carefully crafted curricula create the perfect environment to help develop students’ communication skills and encourage them to share ideas in several ways: speaking, writing, drawing, and building. 

The Lower School program, grades K-5, utilize specialized teaching with blocks of instructional time in literature, language arts, mathematics, science and social studies.  Quarry Lane has determined that the benefits for students taught by teachers who specialize in one content area--an area they are passionate about--are significant.  This model gives our students an elevated level of teaching from teachers who are inspired to dive deeper into their specialized areas.  The Junior Kindergarten class will maintain one teacher for the core subject areas. In addition to this core instruction, students also participate in “special” courses such as art, music, library, physical education, computer science, engineering and Spanish.

To further enrich the students educational experience all grade levels participate in field trips as a part of the core curriculum and every grade level participates in a community service project during the academic year.

Through the Cougars of Distinction program, students learn to embody the characteristics of honesty, responsibility, compassion, courage and respect. The traits are reinforced by the faculty and administration through reference to the Cougar ideals in the classrooms through a monthly acknowledgement program by which students are chosen by faculty for displaying exemplary behaviors in the above identified areas.
