Mott Hall Science and Technology Academy is a rigorous math, science, and technology focused middle school that offers families the opportunity for their children to meet the highest academic expectations and standards, to make smooth transitions to selective high schools, to compete successfully for admission to top public and private colleges and to succeed as a global citizen. Our school culture is characterized by a shared vision for academic excellence, the healthy personal growth of all students, and a commitment to our strong belief that all students can and will succeed in their endeavors.
At Mott Hall, students, faculty, and staff members have a shared vision of each individual’s ability to achieve personal success each day as preparation to become active members of our global society. The journey our students embark on when they enter our doors is marked by continuous support and guidance academically, emotionally, and physically, to ensure the holistic development of our young people. They enter a community that embraces them while challenging them.
Instruction in our school is rooted in collaboration and inquiry, which leads to deeper individual understanding of content and application of this content to real life. To this end, our instruction is rigorous and differentiated for students. Our young people learn to connect content to concepts that ask them to think about ideas in ways that go beyond the classroom. Interdisciplinary learning is used as a tool to reinforce content connections with assessments and questioning that build upon prior knowledge to encourage new discoveries.
Along with strong support in our classrooms, we create a safe learning environment for our students, nurturing and supporting them as they grow. Students are equipped with tools to overcome obstacles they may face and to help them become understanding and respectful of different identities and cultures. To do so, we focus on our school's core values: respect, responsibility, honesty, integrity, compassion, generosity, and fairness, along with the International Baccalaureate learner profile traits. With these tools, our students become life long learners ready to actively participate in the world.
