My husband and my self went to Otay school 27 years ago and now our son attends Kinder. The school is great, the teacher Ms. Todal is amazing. My son has learned to read so fast and he has gotten to be great at math. All the kids talents come out, all the kids have improved in one way or another.

My step-daughter goes to this school and I find this to be a wonderful place for young students to learn and become successful people. The staff is great and the school has a lot of nice things going for it.

My two children have attended Otay Elementary since kindergarten and I have seen a tremendous positive change and improvement in both the school and my childrens academic growth. The teachers and the principal have done an exceptional job in improving the students state scores!

I think that the school has a wonderful community of teachers. However, because of the pressure to increase the test scores, the teachers are focusing exlusively on test scores to the detriment of the quality of teaching. As is often true across the country, there is hardly any fun in learning there ...  Read more

otay is a great school. they just need to add a few more afterschool activities. the principle needs to be a little more interested in the kids and try to be around them more. the kids need to know that they have a principal who cares about them.

Test Year: 2012
Otay Elementary School
Chula Vista Elementary School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
