I'm sorry to see families come here to unload a tough experience instead of providing constructive feedback (whether positive or negative). According to the State of Delaware's website, MOT has a history of being fiscally responsible and almost all our the teaching staff is in the "highly qualified" group. We have 5 children that have attended and could not be more pleased with the FREE education we have received. People who attend fully funded district schools or private schools should be mindful of not comparing their experiences.
The High School curriculum is challenging, but students can complete homework in advisory periods, and rarely have more than 2 hours nightly. It is about time management and focus, a skill which is highly used in the workplace. Our 2 High School children are happy and when asked, choose to stay at MOT - they love their school.
This school is a disgrace to the name that charter schools carry. It is one of the most unprofessional environments I have ever been in. Their budgeting skills are worse than my 8 year old sons. For a school that bases their whole curriculum online, their internet is constantly down. The teachers are very uninteractive and rely on the internet to intstruct the students. Since they hire people at random with no prior experience, the "teachers" do not do their job. Their lunch is extremely pricey for what it is. I have spent over 400 dollars in lunch for my 2 children and it has only been half of the school year. They assign at least three hours of homework each night per student and I barely have any time to hang out with my kids on the weekend. The sports and clubs are very expensive for what you get. The extracurricular activities are underfunded and are run by teachers. My son and daughter have both been depressed ever since they arrived at this school and that is one of the major reasons I have pulled them out along with their drastic change in grades from middleschool.
