Otis School is great. Dr. Clem is a real hard working principal. The teachers there are really nice. Everybody there is so experience with kids. Esprcially the special Eds teacher. Loves Ms. Marian. She's really working very hard with the kids. Hope she'll stay.

This school has attentive teachers and a great deal of energy paid to the kids well-being and happiness. It's a large school, but doesn't feel like it.

Otis is a diverse school that benefits from a unique blend of excellent teachers working together with committed parents. When these children leave Otis for middle school, they leave as strong, capable students ready to take on the next challenge.

Otis is just okay!!! The teacher my daughter has this year is so terrible. Most of the parents feel the same way, and we have complained to the principal and he does nothing about it.
