This school-year, DCPS Global Education partnered with DCPS’s six International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools to recognize students and families at the first annual IB Showcase. Eliot-Hine MS is one of two DCPS IB middle schools in the city. At this recent IB showcase, EH students and families viewed projects through a gallery walk and voted on their favorite IB work products. EH students’ projects ranged from science fair projects, community projects, art, and student writing. 

In addition to supporting event set-up and clean-up, Eliot-Hine students were also present to share their Community Projects and receive recognition on stage. Each school honored students with Learner Profile awards and Outstanding IB Assignment awards. Parents and community members were also honored with an Outstanding Program Advocate Award. All in all, it was an exciting night to celebrate DCPS’s IB World Schools!

  • The DCPS ECE program will be open to applicants citywide and will not have a boundary.

Updates to Eliot-Hine Modernization

This blog post information is provided by the DCPS Facilities team. View the full Eliot-Hine modernization webpage here

A letter was sent home to Eliot-Hine community earlier this month with some updates on Eliot-Hine’s modernization. View the full letter here. Although the timeline for the modernization remains the same, there is a change in the swing space plans. Eliot-Hine Ms will now swing in the trailers that Maury currently occupies rather than an internal swing. This will create a better “buffer zone” between active construction and learning. From this new outcome, Facilities is conducting a survey to gather feedback from the Eliot-Hine community (including Eliot-Hine feeders) and Maury ES. Please share your feedback here

Facilities held community meetings for both Eliot-Hine MS and Maury ES about how these changes may impact them. There will be one more Eliot-Hine meeting on Wednesday, April 18th in the library from 5 – 6 PM. Please contact Oni Hinton from the Facilities Team with any questions: Oni.Hinton@dc.gov or cell phone: 202-907-8358.
