The Quarry Lane School
The Quarry Lane School 6363 Tassajara Rd. Dublin CA 94568 (925) 829-8000Last updated May 2006 by Laura Hansen, Director of Marketing and Communications
Be careful in dealing with Quarry Lane. This is a for-profit school and the owner makes all decisions. Construction of the new high school is way behind schedule. Middle/high school faculty turnover is 5 out of 9. The school won't refund son's application fee for grade 10, even though they canceled the grade due to low enrollment. They won't refund daughter's grade 9 deposit, either, even though the high school has no building and only a dozen students.
Quarry Lane High School is still taking applications for admissions and scholarsips (both merit and need) for 9th and 10th grade for 2006-2007. The new high school building is under construction on the same site as the middle school: it will have over 70,000 sq ft of classrooms, gym, library, labs, underground parking, plus athletic fields. My daughter attends middle school there and we love the people and teachers. The classes are small, the parents are involved, the teachers love their jobs. The kids are bright, polite, imaginative and support each other. Quarry Lane has operated preK and lower grades since 1991 and has a great reputation among East Bay parents. Their website is www.quarrylane.org. But if you want to chat about middle or high school, email me. Shan
My children attend the Quarry Lane School in Dublin. They received an excellent
education. The faculty is highly qualified and knows each studentís strengths
weaknesses. The school offers honors math and science in middle school and
enrichment courses such as dance, stock investing, gourmet cooking, and science.
A Leadership class teaches students how to organize group events and assume
leadership roles. A team of girls won the Exploravision National Science
Competition in 2002. They are strong in math and science, but emphasize
The school does not pressure the children, but teaches them to think critically.
kids play lots of sports and the school boasts some great athletes, including 2
Junior Olympic runners. The high school (opening fall 2006) will have
art science labs, an art studio, and soccer and tennis courts. It will offer
scholarships and financial aid. Many existing teachers have advanced degrees and
will teach at the high school. For this reason, I believe the high school will
academic achievers in a friendly, positive social environment.
A Very Satisfied parent
