Middle School 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.
Finding Balance: Middle School Bell Schedule
Our Upper School bell schedules are carefully crafted to provide a balanced school week and enhance the learning experience for students. Highlights of our middle school schedule includes built in time for important social and emotional activities, including club time, Grade Level Advisory meetings, assemblies, social time, and study hall.
Building Community: Middle School Homeroom
The Middle School Homeroom program is designed to ensure that each Quarry Lane student is seen, known and supported. During this time in the bell schedule, students will engage in activities and discussions to foster socio-emotional learning, have time for 1-1 check-ins with their homeroom/advisory teacher, and participate in assemblies. True to the mission of The Quarry Lane School, the goal of these programs is to “nurture each child to reach his or her fullest potential – emotionally, socially, academically, and physically.
