East Side House Settlement is proud to introduce the Mott Haven Village Preparatory High School. This bold undertaking, building on the success of East Side House’s Educational Programs including the College Preparation Program, serves to support and motivate students preparing to enter college.
90% of young people who participate in East Side House’s educational programs improved reading scores by up to 2 grade levels in one year. 94% of the seniors in the Youth Leadership Program improved their S.A.T. scores by as much as 300 points. Consequently they were accepted at such colleges as Dartmouth, Georgetown, Tufts and New York University.
Building on this success, East Side House is expanding its educational efforts by creating a High School for young people in the South Bronx who aspire to higher education. Mott Haven Village Preparatory High School was founded in 2002 in a neighborhood where the high school dropout rate has reached 50%. The school provides students with a college preparatory education in a small, academically supportive environment. A collaboration between East Side House Settlement and the Department of Education, the school is part of the “New Visions, New Century” High School Initiative.
