Principal’s Message

​Welcome to Elllison Elementary School. Our beautiful school was built in 1996, and we are situated in the middle of the community of Ellison, in the Scotty Creek subdivision, within easy walking distance for many of our students. Many other students arrive every morning through our School District's busing transportation system. Presently, we have approximately 195 students from Kindergarten through grade 5. At Ellison, there is a strong support for activities and events that strengthen the 'family' feeling​ and enhance the learning environment for all in the school community.
