We are now in the 2017 realm/segment/chapter and Year, I totally and absolutely agree with (parent istay). From my close observation in terms of Parent - istay statement "There are no after school programs and no help is offered to struggling students. The teachers are horrible and most teach straight out of the textbook and are rude and brusque to students" I totally and absolutely agree. The only after school program in the building is a program offered by CAMBA and or SASF ONLY, and has No connection with Mott Hall 4. Regarding this school, Because of the lack in academic support, students have the option in failing State exams (where there should not be an option). Facilities focus on being outright rude, disrespectful and knit picking with parents opposed to Partnering with Parents, regarding the students academic success - creating a high level of lack in parent involvement. In regards to attendance if a student arrives late and fails to sign a late log, that student is classified as (Absent???), whereby causing a non factual percentile on a students attendance record. The building of which this school is located also has 2 other schools which as per my observation, students are excelling greatly. I strongly believe this school Mott Hall IV should be placed (if not) on the Failing List.

The only academic programs there are sports and arts. There are no after school programs and no help is offered to struggling students. The teachers are horrible and most teach straight out of the textbook and are rude and brusque to students. Students bathroom visits are scheduled at a certain time and not allowed to go for any other time even an emergency. Mott Hall 4 is a small school sharing a building with 3 other schools all of which are doing better than Mott Hall! I am appalled at the level of parent involvement which is close to none! Mott Hall 4 is a horrible school which I would not recomend to anyone!
