  • Eliot middle school is alright, But the truth is that the school is kinda dirty. There is gum under EVERY desk, kids cuss all the time, they dont even let us use lockers. Im new to eliot by a month or two, and to find out we're not even allowed to use the lockers really didnt put me in the right mood. Yeah, you can still open some of the lockers near Mr. Bucks class. There was a cocoroach in the girls bathroom!! It was gross!! Mrs. Hunter needs to teach math in room 212 again. Mr. Shiva SUCKS. NO ONE can understand his accent, you can walk out of the room and he wouldn't even notice. Other than that, Eliot is an okay school. The library is the finest library in the PUSD school district, And some of the rooms in eliot has been in movies. Such as the library, And the Piano in the music room, the music program is Amazing, It may not seem as much.. But when you really get into it, its amazing. Students stop me when im walking into the school, telling me how i can stand mrs. klages, she yells alot. Well.. The truth is shes never really Yelled. She punishes children that dont pay attention, dont follow directions, if you would just do what she says, You wont get in trouble.
