The existing Eliot-Hine Middle School was built in 1931 with a capacity of 850 students. The school is scheduled for comprehensive modernization with construction to begin in Summer 2018. Planning began in 2016 with the development of an educational specification, community engagement meetings, and a feasibility study. The Department of General Services (DGS), DC Public Schools (DCPS), and the architect is working with the School Improvement Team (SIT) comprised of school staff and parents and members of the community to develop concepts for the school based on program, student, teacher and community needs. The ‘new’ Eliot-Hine Middle School will provide a learning environment that is safe, universally accessible, and comfortable for students. The building will meet or exceed sustainability guidelines for LEED Gold and be an asset to the neighborhood.
