I'm one of the original students from grades 4-8 that graduated in 1989 from Mott Hall on the original campus at City College. This school has always promoted high academic standards the 1st week I attended I had ~2hrs of homework each night in the 4th grade. This is great prep for college the core of this schools curriculum is Science, Math and Technology and it's focus should remain so I graded as salutatorian of my 8th grade class at Mott Hall and my H.S. in SC when my family moved and did very good in college. I am a Senior Accountant at one of the largest MGA/insurance brokers on the East Coast and it has done with the foundation I achieved at Mott Hall. All those complaining about the hard work it really pays off.

Under a new principal, the school is beginning to move in the right direction. Good teachers. I am glad my son is going to the 7th grade in that school.

I attend this school and even though they give a lot of homework, this school is amazing. This school is like my second family, because since the school is so small, everyone knows each other. You could wave at some random person in the school, and they would wave back and smile because they're just that friendly. We welcome everyone and we grow together. We might not have much money, but we don't need it to have fun and do what we need to do.

Good school but they cut the budget and the kids do not get sports activities.

I recently graduated from MHS this year. I went to this school for 5 years, from to 8th grade & was miserable the whole way through. I have few positive thngs say about this school. Because the student body is so small, you do build strong endships & thats great. This school is good in the field of academics but not good anything else. They overload you with homework, crazy deadlines & too many ojects all at the same time. The current dean is very disrespectful- she yells at the dents at the top of her lungs with a bullhorn. NO STUDENT WANTS TO BE IN AN VIRONMENT LIKE THIS. A certain math teacher also gives detention for the ORST reasons. If you are walking too slow in the hallway, he will give you tention. Many of the teachers have bad attitudes. Plz dont send ur kid here!

I am an actual student at Mott Hall and I think that the school has done pretty good on their low budget cut. However, they must include more athletics becuase we are really falling behind in P.E. Great Job Ms. Arndt

I'm graduating this year. And I love MHS! I have learned so much an dhave had fun over the past years I will truly miss it and all of the people. Although they should fix the building but apart from that its an awesome school.

this school has declined in its role as a good school it deserves to be remodeled because the facilities are bad and the students are very well at risk of not getting a well sufficient education. The school needs to be sponsored more and it need more money so that it can give the students a well middle school experience. I also think that the principal needs to interact more with the kids because she really doesn't at all. i graduated from Mott Hall last year and i think it has declined from the school it was in the past.

This magnet middle school sends their children to magnet high schools and several private schools. Besides academic excellence, they are on a budget and offer little extracurricular activities.

The quality of the school is very good. Its a tight knit community where everyone knoews each others. The school has excellent academic program but it is still in need of extra curriculars not dealing with academic, but the the arts and athletics. There is a lack of an athletic facility or an athletic curriculum.

This school is one of the best public intermediate schools in NYC. It is tops academically. As far as the arts, it needs a little bit of work but the education that students receive here cannot be beat.
