Important News

Class of 2017 Scholars Tour the New York Times!
NY Times Eleven select scholars from the class of 2017 were recently hosted by a Mott Hall II parent at the New York Times. Their commitment to covering a news topic that was thought-provoking to readers and challenging to their own sensibilities landed them a space to tour one of the country's largest news outlets. With stories ranging from inequality in salaries between professional basketball teams to the isolation that teens feel based on loneliness, gender, and race, these scholars exemplify Mott Hall II's scholastic excellence.

Mott Hall II was on CNN!!

On Monday, November 7th, the Mott Hall II newspaper was honored to host CNN reporter, Kelly Wallace and cameraman, Jason Basso. Not only was our was school newspaper, "Inside the Halls" highlighted, but several of our students were interviewed about the media's coverage of the election, including scholar's thoughts and opinions on what improvements could be made for the next presidential election.

We are so proud of our scholars. They were poised, well-spoken, mature and expressed their opinions eloquently and enthusiastically.
