Located just two stops from Manhattan in the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx, our schools have a 13:1 student-teacher ratio, giving you the chance to form trusting relationships with students and colleagues.
All children eligible to attend NYC Public Schools are eligible to attend Mott Haven Academy. Complete this form to show your interest in enrolling your child in the lottery for admission.
We need your help! New York State funding only covers a portion of the school’s operating expenses. We rely on private funding to support essential components of our innovative programming.
This project was produced in partnership with the LeveragED Foundation.
