Eliot History


Eliot Elementary - Established in 1928



Quote from the PTA archives in 1948:
"No mention has yet been made in this report of one of the most notable characteristics of our school. Throughout Eliot's history it has been most fortunate to possess civic-minded and whole-heartedly cooperative parents and PTA groups. At no time has there been anything which our PTA could do for the children or the teachers that it has failed to do.  It is this sympathetic understanding of our problems which has made Eliot the outstanding school it has become."

C. W. Eliot was educated at Harvard University.  He became an assistant professor of mathematics and chemistry at Harvard from 1858-1863.  He spent the next few years studying chemistry and foreign educational methods.  He returned to the U.S. in 1865 to become professor of analytical chemistry at the newly formed Massachusetts Institute of Technology, remaining there until 1869, when he became the 22nd president of Harvard University.  Influenced by what he had seen abroad, Eliot remodeled the university curriculum on a liberal basis.  Although he did not originate the elective system, he established it so thoroughly that it spread to other colleges.
