Elmhurst is a neighbourhood in north Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire, England. It occupies the area to the north and south of Elmhurst Road, now a section of the town's ring road.

Elmhurst is mainly residential, and has a very small shopping area on Dunsham Lane and another next to the Buckingham Road junction. Most of the housing consists of terraced council housing and blocks of low-rise flats.

Elmhurst has two state schools, The Elmhurst School, on Dunsham Lane situated next to the Alfred Rose Park, and St Louis Catholic Combined School located on the edge of the estate near Bierton Road.

The Elmhurst School (formerly Elmhurst Infant School and Elmhurst Junior School) is a mixed primary community school, which takes children from the age of 3 through to the age of 11. The school has approximately 250 pupils. The upper school has 4 year groups with 1 or 2 classes in each one. The name of the class is depended on which year group the class is in (Year 3 - Children which are 7-8 years old. Year 4 - Children which are 8-9 years old. Year 5 - Children which are 9-10 years old. Year 6 - Children which are 10-11 years old.) and the first letter of the teacher's surname who teaches that class e.g. Year 3 + Mr Smith = Class "3S". The current Head Teacher is Mrs Diane DeWolf. In July 2011 the school was graded satisfactory by Ofsted with several good features including its Early Years Area.

St Louis Catholic Combined School is a mixed Roman Catholic primary school in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. It is a voluntary aided school, which takes children from the age of 4 through to the age of 11. The school has approximately 220 pupils.
