Elmwood by the numbers

Developing confident, engaged and healthy girls requires balance. Life outside of the classroom at Elmwood complements and enhances the academic program and reflects the needs and interests of today’s girls. Clubs, sports teams, student government and the House system offer numerous opportunities to explore passions and connect with those who share them.
