My son attends Kindergarten here. He didn't have any prior preschool learning and my fault as the parent I didn't think to start teaching him. So he struggled trying to learn especially being a left handed kid and his father has a learning disability. But I am so proud to say he has improved so much ...  Read more

2nd year for my son at Otero. Teachers are very good. They really seem to care. Academically my son thrives. Admin staff not always kind. It feels as if they forget the person and focus only on tasks and policies.

The teacher was not very encouraging to my child but she was sure to reprimanded them. When it came time for progress reports they would score my child low and during parent teacher conference the teacher would say "this does not represent what your child knows." It was obvious that the teacher had ...  Read more

My daughter attended Otero from Kindergarten through 5th grade and did very well there. My son currently attends and is doing extremely well in his class. There are a few areas that I believe the school could excel in such as providing more student teachers or Aides in the classrooms. Right now the ...  Read more

I love having my daughter at Otero and even though we have moved out of the district we still make the drive to school everyday. The teachers work so hard to make sure every child succeeds and the staff is amazing. The classwork is engaging and really makes it fun for the kids to learn and helps them ...  Read more

Otero Elementary and Harrison School District 2 are doing wonderful things. My son should be going to WSD3, but because of the wonderful things going on, I switched him to Otero! Otero has wonderful, driven, and dedicated teachers! The administrators are absolutely dedicated to providing any and all ...  Read more

My daughter returned to Otero for her second year there and I have to say that the school is doing well. Not perfect, but the effort is there. This year, I don't see "some" of the excellent teachers that were there last year (to include a counselor), but there are still a number of caring educational ...  Read more

If your child fits into the box of their "pefered" student, life is good at Otero. Children who face any sort of challenge, or are military are like "problem" children. We are hoping to move our child soon. Although my husband and I are intelligent people we are spoken to like we don't have a brain between ...  Read more

I would not recommend this school for my worst enemy. Students have little supervision, problems are continual or progressive. I have met with the teacher, Principal, and Vice-principal only to see no results. No communication from teachers or staff unless you absolutely demand it! Disorganized and ...  Read more
