Mott Hall is an good school that prepares its students for college. It offers the IB program where students can gain college credit. The Build-On program is also offered in this school which allows students to give freely to their community by doing services. However,not only is the school a school that prepares their students for college with challenges, but it's a school that learns with fun with a Mott Hall Olympics every year where the grades compete against each other. The area is fine with not too many problems but of course, there can be improvements considering the Claremont area. The students treat each other as family most of the time and always encourage each other to do better. The only improvement that I'd say the school needs is a little more professional teachers but the teachers are wonderful and really want to see their students make it to higher education. I'll be a junior in the Fall coming up and I'm excited to be an IB student taking on its challenges.

Mott Hall High School is great but the fact that its so unsafe going home from school is just puzzling. I am a student here and although the school is alright when it goes to going home there's always people waiting to jump you. Its a great school but its in a bad area.

Mott Hall is a good school. I have two children that attend. The faculty is very helpful and academically it great. They offer after school programs preparing for S.A.T I think this school is a great aspect to the community. My son will be in the first graduating class of 2009. Thanks for listening.

This school is great in academic wise. But people look right pass that because of the simple fact there are always fights occurring during and outside the schools from problems that could have been solved inside of school. I am a student that attends this school and it is very challenging but if we can get ready of all the problems Mott Hall Highschool would be the best school in the Bronx. Thanks for listening

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
