THE MOTT HALL SCHOOL UNIFORM-IMAGE

 

    

Our Dress  Code Policy :

is intended to help our school promote a more effective learning environment. As stated in clause A-655 of the Chancellor's Regulations, the use of a uniform dress code helps to foster school unity and pride. In addition, it eliminates label competition; simplifies dressing, and minimizes costs to parents. Wearing a uniform teaches children appropriate dress and decorum in school

CURRICULUM

The goal of the Mott Hall School’s curriculum is the development of skilled students who are self-directed critical thinkers.

 

Young Scholars

Mott Hall students are considered young scholars. They learn subject matter through a constructivist and project-based approach using powerful learning techniques such as Socratic dialogues, literature circles, writing for student publications, digital film making and web site creation.

The curriculum is further enriched by its alignment to the Common Core NationalStandards. Students are offered accelerated special courses and seminars as well as special enrichment electives such as chess, robotics and stock market studies which engage them in real world investigations tied directly to student needs and interests.

TECHNOLOGY

Mott Hall has a technology rich environment. In an effort to confront the digital divide, we use the PupilPath online system to give       parents and students instant access to grades, attendance, and progress reports.
