This school is awesome we have camping trips every year for example this year the sevenths grader went to camp mason and had a lot of activity to do also free time and pool time . One reason that I don't like this school is homework detention. Homework detention is if u dont do a homework u have to stay after school for 45 min but overall I like motthallv

This school is awesome. I just entered as a six grader and the teachers CLEARLY announced the rules throughout the whole school and in the classroom. I am doing well in all my classes (even though I need to get better in math) and the teachers are great!

This school is one of the best middle schools in the bronx since it has strict rules and great teacher involvement with the students.I graduated this year (Class Of 09) and I am proud to have been part of the Mott Hall V family. In MHV, the students go on a lot of fun trips and at the end of the school year the grades go on camping trips, which are very cool. I recommend parents to enroll their kids in MHV because the leadership of Mr.O (Principal) and the staff will help them become better 'ladies and gentlemen'

I am a student at MHV middle school and it is an amazing school. This is my last year there and the faculty has become my second family. They offered me so many opportunities that a regular middle school would not be able to offer me. I have gone to two camps free, i have gone to DC free, and we have gone on so many overnight trips free. This school has made feel like i have a chance in this world, and i love it.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

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.
