Ellis students typically begin their high school career with freshmen orientation, athletics practices, play rehearsals, and the homecoming dance. But for Annika Ramani, her high school experience didn’t begin in the Upper School but in the southwestern corner of Germany. A member of the Class of 2021, Annika is currently studying in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany, for the first six months of the school year. She attends St. Ursula Gymnasium Freiburg, a German school for grades 5 to 12, where the only English spoken at the school is in English class.
The Ellis School was thrilled to welcome over 300 grandparents and special friends to campus on Tuesday, November 21 for Grandparents & Special Friends Day. A tradition at Ellis every other year, Grandparents & Special Friends Day is a celebration of the beloved “grand people” in Lower and Middle School students’ lives.
