A Program of Schools for Children


Welcome to Lesley Ellis School!

Tricia Moran, Director of Admission

At Lesley Ellis students are encouraged to take pride in their success, courageously pursue their passions and dreams, and develop a strong engagement with the learning process that will last a lifetime. Teachers and students come together each day for creative, social, robust, and engaging learning activities at every grade level, and parents are appreciated for their partnership in our community.

Our admission team is available to help you learn all about Lesley Ellis. Over the past year, we have hosted a number of open houses and tours, as well as invited applicants to a creative class or fun social event. We are making a joyful noise and we’d love for your family to be a part of it. We have a fast, easy way to apply and submit teacher recommendations, too.

Check out the video below to see what makes Lesley Ellis such a special learning environment.
