    The Quarry Lane School Reviews

    I have two children in the Lower School and have been extremely satisfied with our experience. One of my kids is more "academically-inclined" than the other and I can honestly say that they both receive support to fit both of their learning styles. I can see my older one stretching and asserting himself more this year from the encouragement of his teachers and I see the little one, while she needs more help, feels equally confident and not at all stressed about needing/getting more support. And, bottom line (what matters most to me)–they are both happy and thriving. Yes, it is an "academic" school with a challenging curriculum, but both of my children participate in a number of sports and activities and keeping up hasn't been an issue. I know many families choose this school for the academic rigor and are quite pleased, but as a parent that's not laser-focused on academic results, I can say that it is a terrific school for our family!

    I would highly recommend investing in QLS education!
    I have 2 girls who have been with QLS right from their lower school years (2nd grade onwards). My girls are now in 12th and 9th grades. We are extremely happy about their growth as young individuals in terms of their academics, mannerism and overall personality development.
    The teachers and the support staff at QLS are very welcoming to not just the students but also to the parent community. I feel that my girls are well prepared to handle life in general. Thank you, Quarry Lane!
    We have two children at QLS, a senior and a sophomore, and have found the school has exceeded our expectations on virtually every dimension -- academic rigor, quality of pedagogy, staff credentials with advanced degrees in the subject which they are teaching, care and concern for student welfare and total experience, healthy peer associations you'd expect from serious college bound students, and a well-appointed infrastructure from the secure buildings to lab equipment. We have two other children in top IB schools in the area but QLS provides a far better learning experience for children who have a strong motivation to learn and grow in a rigorous environment without many of the distractions you'll find even if good public schools.
