School Notes

  • Small class sizes ensure that your daughter receives individual attention and personalized instruction by distinguished faculty and dedicated staff.  Each Elms girl is encouraged to explore the world around her and express her ideas and opinions as she begins to develop her unique personality, gain confidence and build a positive self-image.
  • Free from the pressures of a co-educational environment, Elms girls are able to cultivate their talents and share their ideas without limitation. Nationally recognized research indicates that girls learn and process information differently than boys.  This means your daughter will learn and excel at her own pace, challenged and encouraged by her peers.
