Ben Drake - Class of 2017
University of California, Berkeley: Regents Scholar, Berkeley Haas Undergraduate Business Program
"Without QLS and the IB Program, I don't think I would ever be where I am today... How well rounded my schooling was has made a huge difference in how I carry myself today. Thank you both for a wonderful learning environment and experience."
Yuvraj Mahadeshwar - Class of 2017
"Quarry Lane School provides the perfect resources to ensure your acceptance into a top-tier college. I had never imagined that I would even receive admission to Ivy League institutions or other elite schools. However, my teachers and counselors believed in me and helped me receive acceptances to several Ivy League and Ivy-Plus schools."
Dan Quijano Sur - Class of 2016
United States Naval Academy
"Up until this point in my life, I have made a number of key decisions that have shaped both where I am today and the rest of my life. One of these most important decisions, and one that I am truly grateful to have made, was my decision to attend Quarry Lane."
Sena Adansi - Class of 2017
"Quarry Lane has taught me to embrace challenges; I am inclined to approach them rather than shrink away... Instilled in me now is an attitude to 'run to the fire' and without my Quarry Lane education, I would be nowhere near where I am today."
Faculty and Staff
The faculty and staff at Quarry Lane share a common goal of instilling, inspiring and nurturing a genuine lifelong love for learning in our students. Many of our faculty members hold advanced degrees and bring real-world experience, expertise, and above all, passion to their classrooms each and every day. Each year, we highlight members of our dedicated faculty in our school publications, below are a few recent interviews:
What Parents Are Saying About Quarry Lane
Thank you for consistently creating a meaningful and effective learning environment. Our whole family is growing because our son has the opportunity to attend QLS. Thank you for the devoted expertise. It makes a lasting difference."
- The Koth Family, Upper School Parent
As Educators, we imagine that often you do not know or hear about what happens to the students you invested in after they graduate from high school. We are assuming that there could be little praise or appreciation that comes back to Educators once a student leaves QLS.
In this case, we wanted to circle-back to give you and others at QLS high praise for all that you gave to our son (education, time, support) as the foundation behind his success at QLS, this past summer, and in his life ahead to come. Directly ahead, he has his own future at Cal to begin in about a week from now. He is well-positioned for that opportunity because of all that QLS has given him. As his parents, we are especially grateful to you for all that you have given our son and we know that he is also very grateful."
- The Drake Family, Upper School Parent
Our daughters have been at Quarry Lane since pre-school, except for two years. During those two years, we tried both a public school and a private Montessori school. Neither one of these worked for us and we came back to QLS. At QLS, we like the small class size, the personal attention our daughters get and, above all, the dedicated teachers that know each student's strengths and weaknesses and try to tailor their class work to the students' needs. We are looking forward to having our daughters attend the AP classes and the IB program in the upper school."
- Monty Bindra, Middle School Parent
My oldest two children have attended other programs including an emergent curriculum as well as a Montessori program and I have to personally say that this is the best thus far! I have recommended this campus to my other friends and they would wholeheartedly agree. We love the great organization that the staff provides including policies and procedures, the curriculum as displayed by how it is embraced by our children, and the friendly and nurturing staff. If I knew what I know now, I would have enrolled all of my children in this program from the start. I am very thankful that I have found this program for my kids."
