The school

"Apparently schools in the Outer Colonies don't have the catchiest names."
Benjamin Giraud[1]

Elysium City Primary Education Facility Number 119 was a school located on Elysium City, Eridanus II and was the school that John-117 attended until age six, before he was chosen for the Spartan-II program and replaced with a flash-clone. The school had a substantial playground, including Gravball courts, and a grassy hill were John-117 played King of the Hill.[2]

It was also the meeting place of Dr. Catherine Halsey (accompanied by Lieutenant Junior Grade Jacob Keyes) and the first SPARTAN-II candidate, Number-117. Once Dr. Halsey identified John, she asked him to flip a quarter. After John successfully guessed which side the quarter would land on, Dr. Halsey added luck to the list of genetic markers she was testing in the Spartans.[3] Approximately one month later, John-117 was abducted from the school.


The number 119 can be interpreted as a reference to the number seven; 9-1-1=7. In addition, 119 is a multiple of 7.
