  • this is a very good school they have improved in helping the children do good on their exams, and the principal is doing a good job. the school need more parents involvement and if you child fail don't blame the teachers blame yourself because you should make sure your kids are doing their work in school. and when they come home to review their homework to make sure they understand what is going on.

  • Mott Hall is steadily improving! The principal is an excellent role model who puts the needs of the children first. The school is on the cutting edge of technology - check out their website - it's awesome! It has extensive listings for students and parents including homework, test scores, etc. But what I love most is that the school has a small and safe family environment. One downside is that students do not have lockers, so students carry heavy books daily - but now that books are available online, that should change. Otherwise, the teachers and administration are doing a great job!

  • The principal and staff are obnoxious and do not involve parents at all! The students are loud and uncontrolled and at times is unsafe for students because of fights that break out right in the hallway. The students are aggressive and talkative disrupting the class. On the first day of school my child had to carry 5 textbooks for his subjects. It was ridiculous and abusive towards my child.
    It's obvious that Mott Hall 4 does not care about its students or its duty to properly educate children in a safe positive environment.
