  • Upcoming PTA Executive Board Election

    Distributed: June 3rd, 2024

    Dear Parents,

    I am writing to inform you about the upcoming elections for the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA). It is imperative that the elections are conducted in a free, fair, and inclusive manner, allowing for the full participation of all members. The elections for mandatory officers, including the president, treasurer, and recording secretary, must be held between April 1 and the last day of school. This timeline ensures that the PTA will be in place during the summer and for the opening of school in the fall.

    PA/PTA officers, and particularly the three mandatory officers—president, recording secretary, and treasurer—are responsible for running the day-to-day affairs of the PA/PTA; communicating with members to inform them and hear their concerns; representing parents on their school’s School Leadership Team; attending meetings of the appropriate Presidents’ Council; and voting for members of the Community or Citywide Education Councils.

     Additionally, we must reserve offices for fall elections to accommodate parents of incoming students. The PA/PTA bylaws may also allow for the election of non-mandatory officer positions, such as the vice president, in the fall. It is crucial that the bylaws clearly identify the reserved positions and outline the timeframe and process for the election.

    We believe that a transparent and inclusive election process is essential for the success and effectiveness of our PTA. We hope to accomplish this mandate at the Zoom meeting scheduled for :Topic: The Mott Hall School Parent Teacher Association Election Meeting

Curriculum @ MHS

The goal of the Mott Hall School’s curriculum is the development of skilled students who are self-directed critical thinkers. At Mott Hall, all of our students engage in an advanced curriculum with the goal of leaving eighth grade with high school Regents credits. To that end, our team of phenomenal teachers leverage many tools to meet students where they are and to push them towards mastery of key skills and concepts. Below, you'll find a list of curriculum materials our school utilizes to achieve this goal.

Curriculum Materials

  • Math - Illustrative Math (Accelerated)
  • ELA - Expeditionary Learning
  • Social Studies - Passport
  • Science - Amplify

Questions? Want to learn more? Reach out directly to your student's teacher.

Young Scholars

Mott Hall students are considered young scholars. They learn subject matter through a constructivist and project-based approach using powerful learning techniques such as Socratic dialogues, literature circles, writing for student publications, digital film making and web site creation.

The curriculum is further enriched by its alignment to the Common Core NationalStandards. Students are offered accelerated special courses and seminars as well as special enrichment electives such as chess, robotics and stock market studies which engage them in real world investigations tied directly to student needs and interests.

Technology @ MHS

Mott Hall has a technology-rich environment.  As one of the first schools in NYC to have laptops, we have continued to grow in our use of technology both in and out of the classroom. Each student has their own device for use at school, and students can request a device to use at home throughout the school year (see forms below). Our teachers use Google Classroom to post work and grades. We encourage parents to facilitate a weekly check-in on assignments to support our scholars in their academic progress.

Want to learn more?

If your student would needs a device, please complete the two forms below and return them to your child's first period teacher!
