Profile Completeness

INTERMEDIATE

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I have 3 children that attended Ellwood for the past 2 years. I am quite disappionted in the quality of the school's lack of resources.The staff is very dedicated to helping BOTH the student and the parent's acheive academically. There are some issue's with behavoir as well as lack of staff .Over all the school is very clean and the student's are better than most.I think if the school had more funding Ellmwood could be much better..But this is Philadelphia is'nt it?

This school is horrible, teachers are not friendly to parents, principal seems to only discipline and not focus on education, no extra curricular activities, no trips, my first grader is going to be transferred as soon as possible because he says he cannot concentrate because of the noise in class

My son went to kindergarten there and I was very disappointed in the academics and structure of the school. During his term there he had 4 kindergarten teachers, no stability or focus in the classrooms. I was disappointed in the lack of attention this matter received. My experience at this school was less than desirable. I would not suggest this school for kindergarten aged children.

There is no discipline at this school. My child went there for k and he is now behind. My next child was supposed to start K and after my first there was no way. I toolk them both out. The children run amuck.

Ellwood is a wonderful school. I have two children who attended here and did very well. One has graduated and still makes the honor roll. the other that is still there make the honor roll every semester. They both have done great on the PSSA. Christine Black is a wonder principle who does indeed care about the students. I know this personally. I would highly recommend Ellwood to any parent.
