Incredibly rundown school. The class sizes are incredibly small and crowded. My son's class has terrible desks, close to nothing. If there's anything that this school needs is attention. It's unfortunate to know that there is a lack of desire to fix up the school. My son wanted a real highschool experience, and this school was not providing it. Academically, it wasn't as bad regarding what the teacher had to work with. The administration needs to step it up. It's all about the kids afterall!

I just wanted to let you know that we have never seen my sister so happy on a first day of school, specially on a new school! My mom and I could not believe her happiness as she left the school. She absolutely loved it. I liked the fact that she said that MOT is like "family". I truly believe this is the school we have always searched for her. We are very excited to see her grow in this amazing school not only academically but also socially. Thank you! Best wishes,

I would not recommend this school to any parent who has special needs kids. The staff is not qualified to be teaching them. Terrible experience!

Great school! My daughter has been attending MOT and she has improved so much in reading. I love the communication between the teachers and parents. If your child is having difficulty in school bring them here. They can help your child like they helped my daughter. You will be very happy!

Our son has been at MOT Academy for 4 years and I am so glad I made the change when I did. He was having difficulty in reading and extremely low in math. My son now is reading and doing Algebra. Very happy with the education they have provided us with these years. I recommend any parent that has a child struggling academically to try this school. You will not be sorry!

This is my daughters first year at MOT Academy and the amount of compassion, love and patients the teachers and faculty have is amazing. We have been looking for a school like this for years with the struggle in finding a perfect place for her educational needs. With this year almost over I can honestly tell you my daughter has excelled to a level she hadn't in years. They believe in their students and make sure they get the educational need they deserve. Teachers are excellent and my daughter loves coming to school everyday. Parents as myself that like to be involved, I am always welcomed with open arms and office doors are always open. Finding this school for my daughter has been a blessing and a answered prayer.

There are no words to describe my feelings for this school After many failed attempts, my son has finally found his forever home. He has been attending this amazing school for 3 years now. When he first started he was non verbal, did not write and had a very difficult time in school. Now fast forward 3 years and he is a chatter box and has found a passion for writing. His grades are great and even though he has had numerous health issues, his teachers and administration have never stopped showing tons of support. I wish every child could experience the love and devotion given by everyone at the school. If asked I don't think I'd be able to rate them with anything less than a million stars. I love you guys, and I owe you soooooo much for everything you have done for our family!!!! If you happen to come across this while searching for a school for your little one, don't think twice and go check out M.O.T. Academy.

My daughter has been attending M.O.T Academy for three years. The teachers are very loving and truly care about their students. She has always hated school and now she looks forward to going to school every morning. She had a difficult time reading and writing and they really helped her improve. I love the school,but even more the fact that my daughter is very happy!

My son began attending M.O.T. Academy during the 2012-2013 school year. He has made tremendous progress, both academically and socially. The teachers are very caring, professional and their hands-on approach have really helped my son improve. I highly recommend this school due to their small ratio classrooms and individualized attention.

This is my sons second year here at M.O.T Academy. I am so happy with the school. My sons teacher is Ms. Marlene and she is GREAT!! All of the teachers are very loving and dedicated. My son receives a great education and therapies.The administration is also very good. Ms. Arlene and Mr. Alan are very helpful and always available. What principal calls to see how your child is doing? They truly do care about your child. I highly recommend this school for any child that needs that extra love and attention.

Excellent school! this is my 6 yr old's first year here attending Kindergarten, he is autistic but high functional and it's been a great year. His accomplishments have been amazing. I feel very fortunate that we found this school, his teacher Ms. Omie is wonderful, she has the patience and understands his condition and how to work with him. He has exceeded all of our goals. The school principal is also a wonderful person, guiding and always there on call 24/7 for the parents. Highly recommended.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
