Ellison is a FANTASTIC school! The smaller classroom sizes afford students the opportunity to develop academically and socially. The Head of School, Leslie Walker, has a versatile background (specializing in middle school aged students ) with an abundance of positive energy and perspective. I highly recommend this private school education for your child(ren).

I think the Ellison school is a fun place to learn because of the wonderful teachers and the fun learning games we play in class. The Ellison school is also a great school because there are a lot of options of things to play with at recess such as the computers, board games, and lots more.
