Elliot-Hine Welcomes Prospective Families

On November 29, 2012, Eliot-Hine Middle School welcomed prospective families on a tour of the facilities.  The principal, Tynika Young made the initial introductions in the library.  Then small groups visited individual classrooms (art, math, and media) where students were engaged in their studies.  Visitors had an opportunity to ask the children questions about their work.  After that, a panel of sixth graders took questions from their visitors.  What do you like about Eliot-Hine? The teachers!  Do you feel safe?  Yes, because there are always adults present to help. Is the work challenging? Sometimes, but they have support from their teachers and they want to excel. They also like the new style of learning (IB) which requires that they work effectively in groups and develop a deeper understanding of the material.

There's no need to wait for the next Open House - call the office to schedule a private tour, 202.939.5380.  Or tune in to the students' radio show on the school's website,www.eliothinemiddleschool.org/.
