1,000 Cranes of Hope

Inspired by the 1,000 Cranes of Hope Project, many of our Upper School leadership students have come together to fold 1,000 paper cranes to support the healing and recovery of beloved Spanish teacher, Ms. Salamanca, in her fight against cancer.

According to the ancient Japanese tradition of senbazaru, a person who folds 1,000 cranes will be granted a wish, such as long life or recovery from illness. Ms. Salamanca's impact on the Quarry Lane community is far-reaching and her joy, passion and compassion is evident in the outpouring of support from both her students and faculty. Please join the Quarry Lane community in our support for the continued recovery and healing of Ms. Salamanca, and in the support of the fight against cancer.

Tips for Establishing a Productive Homework Environment

Establishing an ideal homework environment can help your child avoid distractions and maintain focus on his or her work. First, you’ll need to determine the best area in your home to set up a study space. If your child is in a private preschool or elementary school, it may be best to designate a portion of the family room as a study space. This allows you to easily supervise your child during homework time. Students attending a private high school require less supervision and may prefer a desk in their bedrooms.

As you’ll learn by watching this video, eliminating distractions is critical for a productive homework environment. Make sure your child’s TV, cellphone, computer, and other electronic gadgets are turned off—unless a computer is needed for research. The expert in this video also offers some tips for helping young children learn how to study.

Spring Break in Europe

Over spring break, a group of Quarry Lane students - accompanied by Dr. Burleigh and Mr.Wallace - traveled to Europe for a one-of-a-kind adventure and explored the rich history and culture of London and Paris. Along the way, they took in sites such as Oxford University, Shakespearean Gardens, Canterbury Cathedral and Versailles. It was a jam-packed trip, full of memories sure to last a lifetime!

Quarry Lane offers trips such as these as an opportunity for students to gain a global perspective and the unique experience of seeing history "come to life". Here are a few highlights from their adventure - enjoy!

Inspiring Students to Embrace Science, Engineering, Technology, and Applied Mathematics Education

Science, engineering, technology, and applied mathematics programs are at the heart of modern education. Students at a college preparatory school are encouraged to enroll in these programs to prepare them for the high-tech demands of the modern workplace and to inspire them to become the innovators of tomorrow. Students in these tracks are introduced to a variety of media for real-world problem solving to rouse their interest in these subjects and to provide a more impactful learning experience

High quality science, engineering, technology, and applied mathematics programs encourage students to think creatively to solve real-world problems. Rather than relying on classroom lectures, these programs encompass project-based and activity-based learning, which enables students to design and build new inventions, and refine current ideas. This hands-on, project-based approach ensures that students understand the practical application of the concepts being taught, thus building students’ confidence and fostering a deeper interest in these subjects.

At Quarry Lane School, students at our private high school may choose to enroll in Science, Engineering, Technology, and Applied Mathematics programs, which offer hands-on learning activities within a sophisticated learning environment. Parents are invited to call our college prep school in Dublin CA at (925) 829-8000 or visit our website for more information about our private high school.
