FLOBEL ADVISOR BOB LESSER DEVELOPS MOTT HALL CHARTER SCHOOL
In Bronx, NY Mott Hall Charter School (MHCS) seeks to provide rigorous academics in a strong supportive environment to prepare students for success in top high schools in New York City and beyond. The school accomplishes this mission through an interdisciplinary, inquiry-based liberal arts curriculum, employing a longer instructional day and year, technology infusion, an enriched arts program, and service learning.
Founded by FLOBEL Advisor, Bob Lesser, Mott Hall Charter School bases its instructional methods and philosophy on what has been shown to be most effective in middle schools. According to Lesser, middle school students require engaging, authentic work in a caring, structured classroom environment. Therefore, the school uses constructivist principles within a workshop environment that requires students to work in teams on authentic tasks. Nectar News recently conducted an interview with Bob Lesser to learn more about his experience with the New York education system and his dedication to developing MHCS as Executive Director.
Mott Hall Charter School is located in the Morrisania neighborhood of the South Bronx. To learn more about Mott Hall Charter School visit the school’s website and social media pages.
