There is so much to celebrate at Ellis as we look back at the 2021–2022 school year and look ahead to 2022–2023. Our faculty, staff, students, and families pulled together beautifully during the second year of the pandemic. All students attended school in person on campus and we were able to restart so many of our favorite activities that we had missed during the previous school year. We watched our students blossom, as Ellis girls do—becoming ever more confident, curious, and connected with each other. We were particularly proud of the Class of 2022—full of exemplary scholars, artists, athletes, activists, actors, musicians, and leaders—and are so excited for the opportunities that await them at the stellar colleges and universities to which they are headed.
It’s particularly exciting to see evidence of the School’s vibrancy in our strong enrollment and fundraising. Our current student body has grown to 408—the highest enrollment in a decade—and includes a wonderfully diverse community of girls. Donations to the Ellis Fund in 2021–2022 were especially strong, with total gifts of over $700,000—a ten-year high. In addition, we were able to raise over $1.3 million to fund a long-awaited renovation of all our Middle School science labs. We are incredibly grateful to all the donors who have supported the School this year, making it possible for us to continue to recruit and retain outstanding faculty, attract and support our compelling and diverse students, and make critical improvements to our beautiful campus.
