Student Life

At Quarry Lane, education goes beyond the classroom experience. We provide our middle school students with ample opportunities outside of the classroom that promote our students' social and emotional learning during this important stage of development. These opportunities also allow our students to discover their passions and strengths while forging connections with one another. We believe in fostering an atmosphere that celebrates individuality, diversity, and respect for others, and also embraces our core philosophy that "I can make a difference". So, whether it's an after-school club, event, or travel experience, we strive to help our students develop positive connections with their community, their peers, and themselves.

Travel Opportunities

Each year Quarry Lane School provides opportunities for our students to travel and take their learning beyond the classroom. During these trips, students form bonds with each other and share an immersive learning experience that enriches their overall education at Quarry Lane.

Past middle school experiences have included a Yosemite backpacking adventure, a trip to the Sierra Crest as part of the Headwaters Science Institute outdoor learning program, and an excursion to our nation's capital. Programs and excursions are subject to change each year based on availability and interest.

Clubs and Extracurricular Programs

Quarry Lane offers a wide variety of students clubs and extracurricular programs throughout the year. Students can forge new friendships, hone their skills and discover new passions through participating in these programs.

The club community at Quarry Lane is student driven. A student or group of students who share a common goal or interest can easily begin their own club along with one of our dedicated faculty mentors. All of our student clubs are open to both middle and high school students.
