Welcome to DREAM Mott Haven
Elementary School

At DREAM Mott Haven Elementary School, everything we do is guided by our Whole Child model: the belief that every child needs and deserves not only rigorous academic instruction, but also social-emotional support, physical health and wellness, and the strength of a community behind them. When children are known, seen, and loved, that’s when they have the space to grow into the leaders, innovators, and changemakers of tomorrow.

“Christopher came home and said 'I love school' and we both cried. Never at the two other schools he attended did he once say he loved school.”

el lugar importa

At DREAM, we believe that every child deserves a beautiful space to play, learn, and grow. DREAM Mott Haven Elementary School is located at 20 Bruckner Boulevard, DREAM’s brand-new home, a state-of-the-art school located in the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx. At capacity, it will serve 1,300 Pre-K-12 DREAM scholars.

As core to our mission as it has been from day one, opportunities for play run throughout the new school, from the ground floor’s auxiliary gym to our rooftop playground. DREAM students are given the best spaces to learn, including a light-filled, cathedral-type library and a STEM quad featuring speciality classrooms and laboratories. The space is a physical manifestation of DREAM’s ambitions for its students.

nuestro plan de estudios

DREAM’s curriculum ensures rigorous instruction that teaches children to think critically and imaginatively. For elementary school, this includes:

  • Literacy
  • Math
  • Science
  • Art
  • Physical Education
  • Social Emotional Learning

DREAM uses an inquiry-based approach to learning to put scholars in the front seat. Scholars find solutions to problems on their own and share their discoveries with the class. By problem solving first, they’re able to gain context on subjects and learn from their own thinking. In our classroom, we want scholars talking more than teachers.

Después de la escuela gratis y Programación de verano

Every DREAM student is guaranteed a spot in our free afterschool and summer programming. That's because we believe that an extended-day, extended-year model is key to nurturing scholars' whole selves, keeping students engaged all day long and all year long through a mix of academic support, social-emotional learning programming, sports-based programming, and enrichment activities like field trips.

Una vez que su hijo esté inscrito para el otoño, puede comenzar su viaje DREAM ese verano; todos los estudiantes entrantes tienen garantizado un lugar en nuestra programación de verano.

¿Que es una escuela autónoma?
Las escuelas chárter son escuelas públicas, gratuitas y abiertas a todos, que tienen la autonomía y la libertad de diseñar aulas que satisfagan las necesidades de todos los estudiantes. Cada red de escuelas chárter tiene sus propios principios y prácticas, que pueden generar diferentes resultados para los estudiantes y las familias. En DREAM Charter Schools, todos los maestros están certificados por el estado de Nueva York y estamos comprometidos con un modelo que da la bienvenida a todos los niños y atiende todas sus necesidades: académicas, socioemocionales y físicas.

Where is DREAM Mott Haven Elementary School located? Does MHES offer busing?
DREAM Mott Haven Elementary School is located at 20 Bruckner Boulevard. MHES has DOE busing, and for the next school year, will likely provide eligible families busing before school and at normal dismissal. If your child attends afterschool, we will most likely not be able to provide busing after afterschool.
¿Qué tipo de apoyo ofrece DREAM para los niños con IEP y / o necesidades especiales?
DREAM believes in every child, and 29% of our students have identified special needs. All our classrooms are have an integrated co-teaching model (with two teachers in every classroom) as well as onsite counseling, speech language therapy, physical therapy, hearing support services, occupational therapy, and paraprofessional services. 100% of IEP services are provided in person. For our students without IEPs, DREAM offers Tier 2 Support services in the form of both academic and social-emotional interventions.
¿Ofrecen servicios para estudiantes de inglés? Si es así, ¿qué servicios se ofrecen?
DREAM ofrece dos modelos para la enseñanza de estudiantes del idioma inglés, según las necesidades del estudiante. En el Modelo Independiente, los ELL/MLL se sacan del salón de clases regular durante un bloque del día para recibir apoyo lingüístico a través de un plan de estudios ELL designado. Las lecciones enfatizan el desarrollo de habilidades para hablar, escuchar, leer y escribir para mejorar el lenguaje académico y social y acelerar el progreso en el salón de clases básico. En el modelo de Co-Enseñanza Integrada, el maestro ELL/MLL ingresa al salón de clases regular y trabaja con el maestro del área de contenido para brindar apoyo lingüístico adicional a los ELL/MLL. Es una colaboración entre el maestro de educación general o de contenido y el maestro de inglés como nuevo idioma.
