Mott Hall Community School

Summary:

Mott Hall Community School is a public middle school located in the Bronx, New York, serving 301 students in grades 6-8 with a diverse student population. Despite its high per-student spending, the school has consistently underperformed compared to the New York City Geographic District #8 and the overall New York state averages in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math proficiency.

Mott Hall Community School has ranked in the bottom quartile of New York middle schools, with a ranking between 884 and 1,246 out of approximately 1,500 schools over the past several years. While the school's English Language Learner and Special Education students perform relatively better, ranking in the top 25-30% of New York middle schools, the school's African American, Hispanic, and Low Socioeconomic Status students perform significantly worse, ranking in the bottom 40-50% of schools. Interestingly, several nearby schools, such as Middle School 101 Edward R Byrne and Urban Institute of Mathematics, significantly outperform Mott Hall in academic proficiency and statewide rankings.

The school's relatively high per-student spending, ranging from $17,445 to $20,492 over the past few years, may be a contributing factor to the school's lower academic performance, as research has shown that socioeconomic status can significantly impact student outcomes. Additionally, the school's performance varies significantly across grade levels, with 8th-grade students outperforming 6th and 7th graders in both ELA and Math, suggesting that the school may be more effective in supporting older students or that there are specific challenges in the earlier grades that need to be addressed.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
