Thank you for your interest in Mott Hall II!

On December 18th, 2020, the NYC Department of Education announced drastic changes to the Middle School process for admissions entering the 2021-2022 school year. You can find the Chancellor's letter to families. Some highlights of the changes include:


  • The middle school application will open and available during the week of January 11, 2021. Families should contact elementary school staff to complete and submit their application.
  • The deadline for families to submit their middle school application will be the week of February 8, 2021.
  • Middle school offers will be available to families and school staff in the spring.

Admissions Methods:

  • As announced by the Mayor and Chancellor, DOE public middle schools will use an open admissions method this year. This means that programs will pause on screening, or using applicants’ academic records, auditions, or other assessments to evaluate or admit students. If a school has more applicants than available seats, offers will be made using priority groups (when applicable) and random selection (a lottery).

Mott Hall II will continue to update families as we learn more information. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact our Parent Coordinator, Wanda Matos at
