Ellis Opens School Year with Highest Enrollment in Ten Years

Ellis opened the 2022–2023 school year with 409 students in pre-kindergarten through grade 12—our highest enrollment in a decade!
We are excited to welcome 82 new students who come from 20 school districts around Pittsburgh, from all over the United States including Ohio, Michigan, Virginia, Georgia, Texas, Missouri, and California, and from as far away as Korea and Israel. Our new families speak a variety of languages at home, including Lugunda, French, Spanish, Japanese, Mandarin, German, Kannada, Tamil, Slovene, Korean, Farsi, and Hebrew. Our new students are passionate about the environment, they value kindness, inclusivity, and friendship, and their interests include coding, music, art, drama, and reading. We also have many talented athletes among our diverse group of new learners, who participate in dance, soccer, track, basketball, swimming (including artistic swimming), and ice hockey, and we look forward to cheering them on this year!

A huge thanks is owed to our current families who referred friends or relatives, as well as those who attended a virtual or in-person admissions event. If our Ellis students remind you of your friends, your daughter, or your relatives, we’d love to meet them. We hope that you will continue to reach out to the Enrollment Management office if you know a prospective Ellis student.
