The Downside

New school has no track record

Our Review

A new small school housed in the Samuel Gompers Educational Campus, Mott Haven Community High School is designed to offer a fresh start to older students who have been unsuccessful at other schools.

Opened in 2012, the school offers students a chance to accumulate credits faster than they would in a tradtional high school. The school gives students advisors, mentors and individual attention to help ensure they graduate.

Admissions: An interview is required. Students must have attended another high school for at least one year. The school accepts students throughout the year. Students must be at least 16 years old. (Clara Hemphill, high school directory, September 2012)
