Secondary School Placement

Middle schoolers take the lead at many Lesley Ellis school events.

Our Graduates

What does a Lesley Ellis graduate look like? When this question was posed at a faculty meeting, a list of impressive adjectives was generated. Lesley Ellis graduates are confident, well-grounded, compassionate, caring, independent, responsible, critical thinkers, open-minded and self-aware. And that’s only a partial list!

Our graduates are routinely accepted into their first choice schools. At their new schools our students never lose the spark that make them first and foremost Lesley Ellis kids – with the confidence and sense of self that allow them to embrace the many challenges of adolescence. Lesley Ellis graduates go on to become happy, successful high-schoolers. Following is a sampling of schools to which Lesley Ellis students have been accepted: Beaver Country Day, Brimmer and May, The Brooks School, Buckingham Browne & Nichols, Cambridge School of Weston, Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall, Gann Academy, Governors Academy, Lawrence Academy, Lexington Christian Academy, Milton Academy, Newton Country Day, Rivers, and Tabor Academy.

The Right Fit

Deciding which school is right for a Lesley Ellis School graduate is ultimately a matter of finding the right fit. Finding the best fit for your child means feeling confident that he or she will thrive in a particular school community, that your family's values are compatible with a school's values, and that you feel comfortable being parents at a specific school. With so many options, it's quite likely there will be several schools that fit your family, and you will find many wonderful schools from which to choose.

The Process

The process of selecting a high school involves research, application, completing entrance requirements and making a final choice. At Lesley Ellis, our dedicated faculty and staff are available to assist families that are making these choices. We recommend visiting school websites, requesting literature and talking with our Secondary School Coordinators, who help parents through this transition.
