Mott Hall Charter School, opened in 2012, is modeled after the original Mott Hall middle school in Harlem. Howver, unlike the original Mott Hall, the new charter school has no admissions requirements and students are admittted by lottery.

The new school has an extended school day and year, healthy food and plans for the International Baccalaureate program, a challenging curriculum that encourages the study of foreign languages, oral presentations and research papers, according to DNAinfo.

"Were here to give the best middle school that we can to this community, which needs good middle schools," Mott Hall Charter school executive director Bob Lesser told parents, according to DNAinfo. Lesser, a graduate of Bronx High School of Science, has a masters in public policy from Harvard University and has worked in the city's office of new schools. Students have a chance for fun summer trips--like a trip to a restaurant to learn about the food business. Energetic teachers welcome 6th graders at a three-day orientation before regular classes begin. [See video produced by school on this page.]

In the school's first year, test scores were below the citywide average. However, the first year's Learning Environment Survey showed a high degree of satisfaction among parents, teachers and students.

Mott Hall Charter School is located in the annex building of PS 63 in a space once occupied by MS 2, which was closed for poor performance.

Admissions: Lottery with preference to District 9. Applications are available in January. Tours are conducted in the winter and the lottery is held in April. (Clara Hemphill, school website and DNAinfo, October 2013)
