Ellis School

6425 5th Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15206

Founded by Sara Frazer Ellis, Ellis has grown from its initial enrollment of 40 and faculty of six to meet the increasing demands of the community. The school has occupied its present, eight-acre campus since 1959, and it has expanded facilities on several occasions over the years. The rigorous traditional curriculum is sufficiently flexible to meet the needs of individual students. In addition to a two-week minicourse program each spring, a full range of electives featuring art, drama and music is available. An athletic program encourages broad participation. The resources of the city are utilized in field trips, senior projects, independent study and volunteer work. Ellis provides students in grades 8-12 with laptop computers and access to the campus' wireless network.
