I have been so impressed with the school so far. My son has learned a lot this year, and I love all the activities they have for the kids.

I am not at all pleased with the lack of enthusiasm or activities at Ott. I came in with an open mind trying to volunteer and be a team player. It seems like if you are not a part of the click your views don't matter. I don't see teacher's meeting students where they are. I see them teach just enough on the surface. The principal is rude and tries to make it seem like she's there for the kids and welcomes parent concerns. The PE coach is a joke. Cup-staking is not the only thing kids should be doing. Field day was a waste of time.
