Mission Statement:
Founded in 1916, The Ellis School is dedicated to excellence in the education of girls and young women. Inspired with a passion for learning in and beyond the classroom, students actively pursue the opportunities of a rich and challenging curriculum and develop the wisdom and courage to lead in local and global communities.

Benefits of All Girls' Education:
For 90 years we've known what the rest of the world is just now discovering: that girls learn best when their education is unequivocally, uncompromisingly valued; that girls lead strongly when it is their voice that is heard most loudly. Without the constraints of others, girls go everywhere and do everything. Before our eyes a magnificent transformation takes place. Our graduates become independent thinkers. They know how to wrestle with critical questions. They're confident, they're courageous.

This is a unique place because of the pride students take in their school and the community trust you'll find here. At Ellis, there are no locks on the lockers. Students respect and value each other: peer friendships and role models are very important. As a group, they are geographically, economically, and ethnically diverse. Over twenty percent of families receive financial aid to help offset the cost of educating their daughters.
