    "We are so pleased with the Ellis School and the opportunities they have presented to our daughter in her first year attending. Our always curious child has thrived in the environment there and she is excited to share with us what she's learned and how she's learned it. Sometimes, she doesn't even know she is learning, because it's hands-on fun, that just feels like play time, BUT the methods work! Interactive, creative thinking, a mix of small and large group exercises, with a perfect mix of science, art, gym, library, language and music, etc to keep their minds and bodies active. Exceptional field trips, learning charitable giving, learning about empowering women of our past, working together to create big things! I'm excited for my child and to see what great things she encounters next year at Ellis!!"

    "We recently moved to Pittsburgh. When looking at schools (public and private) for our daughter, we were focused academic performance AND school diversity/climate. We chose Ellis because the racial & socioeconomic diversity in this school is not only present but valued. We also chose this school because the teachers demonstrated a high degree of competence and interest in culturally-relevant pedagogy. Children engage in wide ranges of learning strategies. Every girl is valued for her unique contributions. The teachers quickly saw the strengths AND areas of challenge for my daughter. She is an easy kid and does well socially & emotionally. I often worried that, because teachers enjoyed having her in class, her areas of challenge would be overlooked. She is thriving after 5 months. The tuition is significant. However, they make it reasonable to deal with through payment plans and/or financial aid. Don't hesitate to explore this unique place!"

    "The administration has yet to address issues relating to transgender students and also mental health concerns. Classes are good but limited and student population seems to keep decreasing. The teachers make up for the flaws in the administrative positions as they are generally open minded and supportive."

    "It has been such a joy to watch my daughter's love of learning grow at Ellis. She comes everyday eager to tell me what she's learning and her excitement is palpable. Our family is very grateful to be a part of the Ellis community!"

    "The Ellis School is a beautiful small urban campus. My preschooler began there this year and within a few months knew the names of no less than 10 teachers and would run over to them for a hug when we saw them out in the community. It is a nurturing and empowering environment. They have a math, science, art, library, and spanish specialist that even work with the pre-schoolers. My daughter loves it here. There are many teachers with master's and PhD's that make for a collegiate atmosphere on the entire campus. The older girls are paired with the younger girls, which helped my daughter to feel at once a part of the community, and the pairings continue all the way to the senior year. Having pre-k through grade 12 on the same campus makes for adorable and inspiring interactions between the older and younger girls. My daughter loves to see the "big girls" when we walk around campus, and I think they offer a wonderful model for her to live up to."
