Curriculum

The goal of the Mott Hall School’s curriculum is the development of skilled students who are self-directed critical thinkers.

 

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. 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.
