Discover academic and personal excellence

Our philosophy at QMS is to guide students to be resilient, innovative and solution-focused learners who ask thought-provoking questions and challenge assumptions.

Our Purpose

We exist to prepare young trailblazers, because no two journeys are the same.

Be curious. Be brave. Be kind. Be you.

Senior School

If you’re looking for an exceptional and rigorous education that builds confidence, character and compassion, our Senior School offers an enriched and rigorous high school program for students in Grades 8 to 12.

We strongly believe in “learning by doing” and our Grades 8-9 focus on specialized Project-Based Learning (PBL). PBL is driven by curiosity, and helps students gain knowledge and skills through hands-on engagement while empowering them to become independent thinkers, problem-solvers, creators and collaborators.

Our Senior School curriculum is developed to help students gain experiential learning, innovative and entrepreneurial thinking, and offers an equine facilitated leadership development as part of our instructional practices.
