Elmwood’s Centennial Year!

From September 2015 to June 2016, Elmwood School celebrated a century of inspiring, educating, and empowering young women.

Elmwood—originally the Rockcliffe Preparatory School—opened for business in 1915 with only four students, aged four to seven. Over the past 10 decades, more than 6,000 students from around the world have passed through the doors of Elmwood School. Our graduates have gone on to make positive contributions to their families, their companies, their communities and their countries. Truly, we have much to celebrate.

We had an incredible group of volunteers and staff who worked very hard to plan events, activities and celebrations that marked the occasion.
