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 to provide students with a global education which emphasizes leadership, academics, and character development. This program provides students with the option to participate in an academically rigorous, globally-minded education.
