15 Parent Reviews for Overland Trail Elementary School

Its my daughter's second year at OTE. The transition from private to public school has been great. Moore is great in communicating with parents and the teachers are always reachable by email and it's nice to know all the happenings. Only regret is its little over crowded with 23 kids in one class

Great school and help to our kids. There was a comment on here about needing to improve the communication. I would agree with that, they have just changed their method to email this year and I would say it has improved by 100%. We have two kids in the school and they both love it and get the help/support ...  Read more

School needs to implement better communication with parents when certain event happen to your child. The principal needs to have better leadership over her staff. PTA involvement is excellent.

I am extremely happy with the school and my daughter, who is in K, loves it. The principal does not run the school with an iron hand but she does have high expectations for the staff as well as the children. And as a result my daughter has matured alot in the last 6 months. If there are any problems, ...  Read more

The principal and lots of staff run this school with an iron hand! Not a warm, loving environment. Look around before you put your child here and compare! There are much better schools in Blue Valley.

We have been very pleased with our experience at OTE. Mrs. Moore is always available and easy to work with. She made our transition from private to public school a breeze!

OTE is awesome! The staff cares about their students. The principal has high expectations and had made significant changes in the past three years to better the school's effectiveness. I am in the school daily and have seen with my own eyes the hard work that goes on there. Students are learning ...  Read more

I can only speak from my family's own experience, but I do not believe this is a good school. Classrooms are overcrowded and discipline is lacking. My child was harrassed by another child in the classroom and very little was done by either the teacher or the principal to rectify the situation. We finally ...  Read more

OTE is a great school. There are a few wrinkles to be ironed out but a lot of that is due to the fact that it has had 3 principals in 3 years and is a bit overcrowded. I think the real problem at OTE is the parents and the rumor mill. The principal is doing a great job and has had to make several ...  Read more

I have been quite disappointed in OTE. Many of the classes are overcrowded (23 kids in kindergarten). OTE also lacks many features of other BV Elementary schools. There is no full day kindergarten option (with the overcrowding I don't see this happening soon if at all). OTE also lacks on-site speech ...  Read more
