Mission & Philosophy
MOT Charter School provides a challenging curriculum in a safe and nurturing environment where all children learn and flourish. By utilizing diverse teaching strategies and exposing students to a wide variety of educational experiences, we ensure that each child participates in, understands, and enjoys learning.
• A strong school community enables every child to reach his or her academic potential.
• Character development and personal responsibility form the basis for learning.
• Students are empowered and expected to be accountable for their own learning.
• Parents are invited and expected to be actively engaged in their children’s education.
MOT Charter School was founded in 2002 as a public charter school. The curriculum is designed to emphasize problem solving, and our goal is to prepare students to be creative, intuitive, and analytical thinkers. MOT Charter is committed to meeting the needs of each and every student–regardless of where they are on the learning continuum. The configuration of the school is designed to offer a public school experience in a small school setting. The vision includes parents who are welcomed into a partnership with the staff and administration. This enables parents to become an active, integral part of their child’s academic, and MOT Charter School’s, success. The founders are committed to choice in public education and strongly believed in building-level leadership.
