About this school:

What is the ECS difference and secret to success? It’s a balance of work and play, focused study and unrestricted imagination, all within a positive, enthusiastic environment. It starts with school values that entail respect for self, others and the world, a commitment to mental and physical accomplishment, and responsibility for one’s actions. It continues with a school mission to empower each girl with self-awareness, confidence and connectedness –her passport to any destination she chooses.

Principal's Message


Ms. Katherine Nikidis, Head of Schol

ECS provides an exceptional learning environment for girls: girls are our specialty. We know they need unique approaches and environments to develop their strengths as learners, critical thinkers and empathetic young citizens.

Our work with girls is increasingly relevant in today’s high-stakes, high-pressure world. We partner with parents and other community members to cultivate a joyful culture, where our students are encouraged to be healthy, balanced individuals who give their best, take risks and learn from their setbacks in order to move forward.

We work together to ensure that they thrive; that they learn resilience and responsibility while preparing to choose their pathways.

Whether it’s the Junior, Middle or Senior School, our expertise in creating an environment in which girls can reach their full potential is evident.

ECS was founded and nurtured for over ten decades by people who care about children, love teaching and learning, and want to help make the world a better place!

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about the past, present, and future of our compelling learning culture.

Katherine Nikidis, BPHE, MA
Head of School

    Des résultats étincelants pour les élèves d’ECS!

    Encore une fois, l’année dernière, toutes nos finissantes ont réussi haut la main les évaluations ministérielles, que ce soit dans les cours de niveau avancé, enrichi ou langue d’enseignement.

    Tout d’abord, soulignons que les élèves en avancé et en enrichi ont prouvé, comme lors des années antérieures, qu’elles savaient participer à une discussion, qu’elles étaient d’excellentes lectrices et rédactrices, et ce, en ayant des résultats souvent supérieurs à la moyenne provinciale. Bravo à toutes ces filles qui ont su mettre en pratique tout leur savoir-faire et leurs compétences en français pour avoir un taux de réussite de 100%!

    Pour ce qui est des élèves en français langue d’enseignement, notons, entre autres, les succès de trois élèves qui ont passé l’examen ministériel destiné aux élèves qui fréquentent une école française. Grâce à un enseignement rigoureux de la langue, et ce, depuis la 6e année, nos élèves en langue maternelle ont les outils nécessaires pour relever ce type de défis.

    Finalement, puisque le français est depuis toujours une priorité à ECS, rappelons que les élèves de 11e année en enrichi et en langue d’enseignement ont la possibilité de passer un examen de français de niveau universitaire. Cette épreuve leur permet d’acquérir des crédits reconnus dans certaines universités canadiennes, américaines ou européennes ainsi que dans certains collèges. Nous sommes particulièrement fiers des résultats que nos élèves ont obtenus au cours des années. En mai 2013, en plus d’un taux de réussite de 100%, la moyenne de nos filles est de 4,8 sur 5; elles se situent nettement au-dessus de la moyenne québécoise et de la moyenne internationale.

    Comme nous pouvons ainsi le constater, peu importe leur niveau, nos élèves excellent en français!

    Félicitations à toutes les finissantes de la cohorte 2012-2013! ...


    Stephanie Pang was at home when she first received the news that she had received a Director General's Merit Scholarship for entrance to Marianopolis College.."
    I  was so happy and excited that I literally jumped around the room," explained the modest 17-year-old, who just graduated from Miss Edgar's  and Miss Cramp's School (ECS) in Montreal.
    Her entrance scholarship to the prestigious Westmount post-secondary institution is one of only 10 awarded to outstanding students from across the province. The CEGEP chooses recipients on the basis of academic merit, and letters of recommendation from teachers or others who know the student well.
    The ECS teachers who provided Stephanie's letters were more than happy to recommend her for this scholarship, which follows upon the one she received throughout her time in high school. Lauren Aslin, Director of I.T. and Curriculum Integration wrote, "Whatever Stephanie sets her mind and heart to, I am certain she will accomplish."
    For her part, Stephanie credits ECS with preparing her for CEGEP and beyond as much because of what she learned outside of classroom as in it: "I really benefitted from leadership positions, such as Co-Head of the Digital Art Club and Robotics Club. I also put my skills to use for the school's Literary Magazine and Yearbook. In addition, I was a member of the Global Awareness Club and Reach for the Top. I was the pianist in the school jazz band and lead flutist for the Symphonic Ensemble. I was also honoured to be one of four student representatives selected by my school to attend the CAIS leadership conference."
    Stephanie and the other 40 young women in ECS's Class of 2012 are moving on to post-secondary studies, some of them just around the corner at Marianopolis and Dawson College, some further afield at John Abbott and Vanier colleges, and others abroad. Of the 41 graduates, sixteen (39%) are pursuing their studies in the Sciences, eight (19%) in Commerce, eleven (27%) in Social Sciences or Liberal Arts, four (10%) in fine Arts and two are going on to a Grade 12 programme. Their future aspirations are many, and varied: Stephanie herself hopes to study Architecture at McGill after finishing in the Arts & Sciences programme at Marianopolis.
    She got an early start in the architecture field this year, wowing both Science Fair judges and visitors with her highly original project on vertical farming, which involved designing a building made to grow ethanol producing switchgrass. Her passion for science is matched by her love for the arts: she is a talented and award-winning artist, poet, and musician, who along with her sister Natalie--also a student at ECS--has played piano at Carnegie Hall.
    ECS teachers, alumnae, and students will be watching and listening for more news about Stephanie and her classmates over the coming years!
