My school is good and we have a lot less bullying here then other schools. But I feel that we should be learning more advanced things. In 5th grade we are 3/4 of the way done with this year but we are just learning to multiply fractions.

I love MOT...so glad that my son is part of the MOT family. He has learned so much!

I can't wait for my daughter to start in 2014-2015. Hopefully, the high school goes through and is finished by the time she is due to start!

My Kids Teachers are great, they take the time by oing the extra mile to make sure each child is important and special! we sent our oldest to catholic schools and the only thing that was talked about among parents was the teachers and staff seemed to want to just get the day over with unless of course you were a parent that had a big bank account, wish we could have found MOT earlier for him. Love this school!

we just have way to much homework, for summer and school year. other than that its a great school.

You couldn't find a better school for your children. MOT is very organized and dedicated to the children. They focus on them and not on any personal issues. If you have a question they are happy to meet with you and answer it. They are very modern in method and they go the extra mile. Constant teacher, student, and parent communication is practiced. Your child will not be a number in this school, they are an individual.

I attend MOT Charter school Grade 7, and i think we have way too much homework that is pointless, tonight i started my homework 4:30-6:30 (2 hours) then i went to the library for 2 1/2 hours (4 1/2 hours) then from 9-2:00 am (9 1/2 hours) I think that is way too much. I spent an over all amount of 9 and a half hours; and it is already 2:00 in the morning; and i done this homework for the past 4 days; and i have been working like this non-stop. I am tired of all the homework and worn out. The school is okay; but the homework is long and pointless.

My children attend MOT Charter (grades K and 3) and we have been very satisfied with the level of instruction and care they receive. The teachers and administrators really go the extra distance to know and help each student. The small school atmosphere and heavy parental involvement really make a difference. The students at MOT perform well on standardized tests, but the long school year allows weeekly partipation in art, music, Spanish, and gym. The kids and staff are well-rounded with lots of clubs and activites.

I have three children at MOT Charter and we have been really pleased with the school. The teachers are really caring, push students to learn and challenge themselves. The only issue I have is with the early start to the school year but really, that is more my issue than anything else. The kids start in the 3rd week of August and go to the middle of June. I think the homework level is on par with good college prep schools and the focus is on actual learning and confidence building.

My children have been at MOT Charter since its inception, and we are very pleased there. I like the school uniform policy, especially now that my daughter is in middle school. My children feel safe there and know that their teachers care a lot about them. Teachers have some flexibility and creativity in their implementation of curriculum. The major drawback, however, is the extremely long school year.

It has been two years since my son has been attending MOT Charter and it has been the best decision I have made for him. The school is not big at all so eventually everyone will get to know everyone. The teachers are very involved with these kids. They offer an excellent IEP program for those kids that need that extra one on one help. The transportation is HUD busing and the stops are very flexible. . They have a variety in uniforms, which makes things smooth in the morning. My daughter will be starting Kindergarten next year and I will definitely sign her up here. There is no entrance exam or mile radius. Please visit at motcharter.com to get more information.

I think this is a pretty good school, although it didn't fit my child's particular needs very well. The classes are on the large side (20-25 kids each) but the teachers do get to know the students very well and they care a lot about the kids. Uniforms are required and there's kind of a lot of homework, in my opinion. Compared to the DE public schools, this place is definately an improvement, and teachers are great about keeping parents updated on how their kids are doing.
