"What differentiates Ellis girls from others is our confidence and ability 'to be rather than to seem'… Ellis shaped us into strong willed and strong minded young women who can conquer the world — remember that; let it inspire you and others!" – Ramita Ravi '13
Need a space to spread out and get some work done with classmates? Or maybe to just catch up with friends after the weekend and goof around? You’re in luck! In the Ellis Upper School, each grade has their own lounge that is a space reserved just for their class. The communal spaces house lockers, benches, and couches so you can plug in or tune out.
It’s 8 a.m. and you’re dressed as an Oompa Loompa. No, it’s not Halloween—it’s Middle School Olympiad Day! Crazy costumes, song and dance routines, rousing rounds of Pictionary, the Ellis favorite “Quiz Kids,” and much more is in store as you compete with your team for the gold medal (and bragging rights). Unleash your hidden talents, spark a little friendly competition, and get ready for an unforgettable day!
#EllisGirls love food. And at Ellis, there’s not just lunch, there’s snack. Every morning at snack, #EllisGirls have the chance to catch up with classmates, try the latest concoction from the kitchen, and fuel their bellies and brains for classes ahead. Believe us when we say, you didn’t know you always needed an additional meal between breakfast and lunch until you get used to snack.
