My child went to this school and in her first year she got bullied to the point where she hated school and didn't wan't to show up but all of that changed around in her 7th grade teacher when she was giving a chance to get to know other students and staff. I have to say the principle and the vice principle at the time were splendid, I was never displeased with there actions or thoughts. Until my daughter's 8th grade year , I had found that both the vice principle and the principle had left the school and there was going to be a new principle. I rooted for her because most women don't get respected as the boss but as the year progressed on she made rash decisions and it was blatantly obvious that she had no clue of what she was doing. I'd get constant complaints from my child and not only that when I would actually see the changes the school has gone through it was aware to me that the school had lost much of it's discipline. The kids were not always in complete uniforms there would be children sneaking through side doors that they are not suppose to go through and the amount of fights has definitely maximized to a point where I watch 2 little girls get locked up. I don't recommend.
Great school, Great Principal, Great teachers, and Great Staff. Eliot-Hine is the best kept secret on Capitol Hill.
My son attended 6th grade at this school last year. Under the new leadership the school has improved drastically. We have to understand that discipline starts at home, and we can not judge the school based on what some students do. This school has above and beyond to assure the children get a good education. I would recommend it/
I am a 2010 gradute of eliot-hine middle school.I dont think the 2009-2010 school year went as good as if could've.it seems like some students in the school are running it.For example,some 8th graders worked hard to gradute.However,others never came to school or failed to complete assignments just graduated because they were easily passed.I wouldnt reccommend the school.But i would say Ms.brown and Mr.Tyner made my school year exiciting.
My daughter attends Eliott. She wants out! There are students there that are making it very difficult for other students learn in an effective manner. I understand that it is not entirely the children's fault. Some children act out accordingly to what they see and hear at home or from the lack of attention at home. I also have other relatives that go to this school. On occasions there have been some things that have happen wherein the parents should have been notified and they were not. Sweeping things under the rug while a child goes undisciplined for their actions will help that child respect his/her school environment.
