Eliot-Hine Middle School (EHMS) academics are viewed through the lens of the IB Middle Years Programme.
Our Broadcast Network is the only one of its kind in DCPS. Our students have grown with Mr. Birks’ professional TV and radio network operations; interviews with a variety of political people and celebrities have given students confidence, and their behind-the-scenes technical skills are beyond the usual scope of middle school exposure.
Express yourself! Part of the IB learner profile is communication. To that end, EHMS students receive year-round Spanish Instruction. Our 8th grade students have the opportunity to begin high school at the appropriate global language level.
We can also express ourselves through Art. This well-loved elective features clay, anime drawings, beadwork, and more – what sparks the interest of students and the talented Ms. Gueye!
Healthy minds and bodies go hand-in-hand. Our students take PE and Health Education, and learn about the importance of eating fresh, sleeping well, respecting ourselves, and taking good care of our physical and mental well-being. Activities include Pilates, kickball, running, Scatterball, and yoga.
