Progress Report letters were sent home on Friday, October 13th. Please sit down with your student, review the letter, and fill out the chart on the back. The idea is to help train both families and students on how to take an active role in monitoring their work on an ongoing basis. You can see assignments, grades, and more! If you have questions, please reach out directly to the teacher involved. They will be happy to support.

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.

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.
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.

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